    Make a paste with baking soda and white vinegar and leave on long enough to remove the stains then wash with dawn soap.

    Put them in a plastic bag with enough ammonia to cover the bottom of pan, close the bag either tie it off or tape it closed. Put it on a cookie sheet in case of leakage and let it set for 24 hours. Wash well and the stain should be gone.

    Brillo pad and elbow grease works for me

    Barkeepers in liquid form!! It's the best for getting those pots and pans looking like new again. Find it with cleaning products like Ajax, Comet, etc. Baking soda and vinegar is good good too, but BF is awesome!

    I second Barkeeper's Friend! I like the powder kind. It is probably my imagination, but it seems to clean burned on, stuck on stuff on the outsides of baking pans, as well as 1-inch burned up rice in a pot, AND nasty stuff on the bottoms of my pans, better than the liquid. Again, it's probably my imagination! :)

    I like to use cream of tartar and cold water. Wet the piece well and sprinkle on the powder, rub it around to cover all the stains well, lay a wet paper towel or two on it to keep it wet overnight and then wipe away w/ the paper towel and rinse off. If the towels might dry out, then cover wet towels with plastic bag or wax paper. Cream of tartar seems to work better than vinegar and baking soda, less scrubbing..
