    I cleaned a new stainless steel double boiler (the bottom pot) with cream of tartar. I boiled the c of t for a while and then turned off the heat and covered until the water was cooled a bit. The wiped out the pot.

    I've seen the commercial about the dryer sheet to clean a burned pot (place it in the pot with water and boil). Worth a try.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I use the metal scouring pads that are coarser than the brillo ones.

    Burned Pot

    [QUOTE=ILoveToQuilt;6380321]HELP! I burned my good stew pot making beef stew earlier this week. I've tried plain water, water with dish liquid, boiled water with dish liquid, hoping to loosen the burned on mess. Using brillo pads didn't take it off and manually scraping only took off the "top" layer of burnt food, not what's stuck to the bottom of the pot. I don't want to toss the pot so I need suggestions. (Pot is stainless steel, no special finishes like Teflon, Silverstone, etc.).

    Thanks for your help!

    I haven't tried some of these hints, but some sound great. I always put white vinegar mixed with water, probably 1/3 vinegar to 2/3 water and just cover the burned area. Put lid on - broil a bit - cool some and use a stainless scraper and usually all comes out with not a lot of elbow greast. I'll keep some of these other hints to try in the future. Good luck.

    I wonder, would this also work for the burner grates that has burned on crud on them?

    I have used cream of tartar, bring it to a boil and let it sit. Burned stuff should comrade right off.

    I found a recipe on line to clean burned pots: suggested cider vinegar, dish washer soap and soda brought to a boil and then rinsed out immediately. That has worked for me. We always add the vinegar and (Arm and Hammer) soda to our dish washer soap when doing our dishes by hand...cleans the plastic glassware better, too. Good luck with your pan.

    Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and an SOS pad.

    Clorox bleach. Pour enough in to cover the burned stuff. Let sit overnight. The burn will probably be floating in the morning. At least that's the way it worked for my burned on spaghetti sauce.
