    Where were you ladies when I burned six eggs to the bottom of one of my favorite leCrueset (don't have spell check and can't go to Google from here) cooking pots; I mean burned to the bottom, exploded all over my kitchen, stove, refrigerator, cabinet tops--that kind of burned. I had to throw it away, and with it went half of my heart. Can you tell I become very attached to my cookware?????

    All these suggestions sound good to rescue your favorite pot. To really shine it up and to clean any residue that's left, use Barkeepers Friend (on the same shelf as Comet, etc) at WalMart. Have used this product for years on my Revere Ware (stainless) and occasionally on my flatware (the knives, especially). Good to use on stainless steel sinks and ceramic cooktops as well. It's my ace in the hole, as the saying goes. Try it.

    Place your pot in a black plastic bag, put in about a cup of ammonia, seal it up and place in a sunny spot for a couple of days. It should just wipe off after that. Had the same problem just last week. ( Too poor to pay attention)

    nifty nickel has good advice. The baking soda always solves my burned on food problems.

    Try laying a dryer sheet over the burn and cover with hot water. Let it sit over night....

    A good raised dessertspoon of baking soda to about an inch of water... boil for about 10 minutes then leave the pot on the stove until the morning... you will find the burn will just lift off.... we have all done it at some stage in our lives...
    joy...

    I have read this ammonia remedy many times, and I wouldn't hesitate to try it. It always sounds like it works wonders for those who try it.

    I just burned a pot this evening...was cooking some quinoa...and it wasn't done yet, so I left cooking longer, and left the room, got distracted, and by the time I was back it was burned to the bottom of the pan. I will be trying one method, and then the next to see if I can save the pan. It is a stainless steel one-I have had it over 35 years...one of my favorites. Think I will start with soaking overnight with fabric softner sheet(s) and see what that does.
