I need help with my burnt stainless steel pot.

I left my stainless steel pot on the stove with tea bags boiling and forgot it. I smelled the tea bags burning when the water boiled out and found my pot burnt at the bottom and up the sides. I have scrubbed and scrubbed but can't get the burnt areas off. I even tried ammonia. Also tried baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. No luck. Does anybody have a suggestion?

    Put either dry baking soda or salt in the pan slightly dampen a sponge or cloth a rub it with some pressure of course. That's what works for me.

      Thank you Jamie. That usually works for me too, but it didn't work in this case. I was able to get some of it scrubbed off, but the bulk of it is still burnt on.

    Put a good handful of soda in the pan and a few cups of water. Boil it for about 10 minutes and let it soak overnight. The next day it should not be hard to clean.
