1. Spray the burned on food with fabric stain remover and allow to sit for a few minutes then scrub.
2. Put about 2 tablespoons dishwashing liquid in the pan and add enough hot water to fill by about half an inch. Bring to a boil; the food should loosen.
3. Dissolve a quarter cup of baking soda in a cup of water; pour it over the burned bits and soak for ten minutes before scrubbing.
4. For really tough burns, make a paste of baking soda and water and cover burned bits with a thick layer. Allow to sit overnight before scrubbing.
