Last night I heated myself some canned cream of mushroon soup and managed to pour myself a bowlful and leave the rest on the burner ..... what a mess.  I set the badly burned pan filled with water and a lot of Dawn dish detergent in the sink.  This morning it still wouldn't scrape clean so I poured in a layer of just the detergent.   Still won't come clean.
Any suggestions?

Ann -- will 1/4 cup of cream of tartar (precious cookie stuff - lol) cost as much as a new pan? 
I'll try a baking soda scrub first .... then I'll try the cream of tartar.    
THANKS

I use "Bar Keepers Friend" scouring powder on my All-Clad pots and pans.  It works marvels.  Some time you have to soak the pan with a paste of the powder .  I get the powder at Safeway, but I know you can get it at William- Sonoma.    It works much better then Comet!

Bar Keepers Friend or Cameo, both soft abrasive should work with out damaging the pan.  I have also heard that using a denture tablet works well.

Nancy, do you have any Bounce softener sheets? Put warm/hot water in the pan and put one in it for a few hours.

Try filling the pan about 1/2 inch past the burnt ring, add some salt & bring to a boil, turn the burner OFF (sorry, had to do it) & let the pan cool. You might have to repeat this several times. My mom could burn water (really, she would put a pan of water on to boil & forget it).

I have used a layer of baking soda and a bit of hot water, letting it sit over night - the burned-on food had scrubbed right the next morning.  Hope you we able to salvage your pan!

I have heard of the fabric softener sheets and baking soda too.I put my stove grates in a large pot with baking soda and water let the water come to a boil and then simmer for 5 mins .allow the to cool down and then I wash them and all the crud comes right off.I also put a fabric softener in my trash can on the bottom and it keeps it smelling fresh.

I'm sure we all have burned a pan.  The baking soda added to water in the pan and simmering should help loosen the yuck.

I just picked up some of the Liquid Bar Keepers Friend at a hardware store, Menards, they carry all sorts of stuff. Sort of a "fun" store to wander around in.

Hi Nancy,
 I let the pan soak in salt .I sort of make a paste, just enough water to cover,soak . He softens it up to clean.Or I have my husband scrub since I do all the cooking. Good luck.

I've burned pans containing oatmeal and coffee, of all things. Soaking the inside of a burned pan in Bar Keepers Friend works well. You may also consider using enough  straight bleach poured in the bottom of the pan to cover it. Set the pan aside for overnight, or even a day or two--That will definately do the trick. The cooked on black gunk basically peals off. Your pan may be stained/discolored from the burned on mess, but after pouring out the bleach and giving the pan a good wash, the pan will function as it should.

Hi Lori -- it's nice to meet you.  Welcome to VBB
I sure wonder why Bar keepers Friend is better than other cleansers ????  Do you know?
