Default How can I clean off burned on food

This is not related to food preserving, but thought I'd give this a shot anyway. I have a good pot and lid that unfortunately has been ruined due to burned on food. I've tried several methods already to remove the burned on food such as soaking the pot and lid in hot, soapy water, soaking in vinegar and baking soda, stainless steel scrubbers, brillo pads - all to no avail. Any recommendations?

Dawn Power Dissolver. Do not confuse it with the dishwashing liquid
that comes in many varieties. This is completely different.

The pot is stainless steel with an enamel or epoxy finish. The lid is cast iron.

very unlikely to be epoxy. plastics would melt...

if the burned on stuff is just carbon black that
should come off eventually and isn't a harm to anything
at all if it is left alone. a few bits of carbon won't
hurt a person. just a little crunchy at times.

you can try a piece of wood (old wooden spoon, etc.)
to scrape it off.

as for structural, if the burn is actually damaged
metal, does the pot appear damaged from the outside?
in that case i'd probably end up replacing the pot
and learn my lesson to be more careful next time.

Thanks for your input, songbird but cured epoxy is commonly used as a coating for many metals - including pots and it will not melt in this realm.

Ah yes, a little bit of carbon wont hurt us carbon units .

No, the pot is not structurally damaged, fortunately. Don't fret songbird, being a mere mortal comes with the whole package of being imperfect at times.

I bid you a pleasant day / evening and thank you for taking the time to respond.

The last two times I had this problem, I sprinkled heavily with baking
soda, added hot water, and left it to soak about 18 hours. The residue
came off with a little scrubbing with SOS. It might need more baking
soda and hot water and a second soaking, but it worked well for me.

Hi Gloria,

Thanks for your reply. Good idea and I may try this if I don't purchase the Dawn Power Dissolver that Boron Elgar suggested.
