how you can every get it clean again? (Its not borned, its burned!! sorry!) Ok, I get distracted at the wrong time or leave the kitchen instead of standing over the stove and the food goes dry and burns in the pan. Grans used to always put it into cold water in the sink, and that helps, but it does not clean the inside of the burnt stuff. Use one Tablespoon of baking soda, one Tablespoon of vinegar, and one Tablespoon of Dawn, and 1-2 cups of water into the pan, put it back on the stove and bring it to a boil for about three to four minutes. Be careful 'cause it will be hot, turn off the burner and remove from the stove. Using a long handled spoon or whatever, shrub off the blackened bottom into the sink or a wad of paper towels.
It softens up all the black stuff and cleans out the pots, so they can be used again! Wished I had learned this tip years ago. Good Luck with yours.
