Cleaning my pot

Hi, can anyone out there give me some advice on getting rid of the burnt residue in my big jam pot. I was making some marmalade and when I put it on high to get extra bubble the sugar burnt and it is really hard to get off the bottom of my pot. I want to try again on not such a high heat but have to clean the big pot first. Thanks. Look forward to help. Helen

What You Need

•1 cup of vinegar
•2 tablespoons of baking soda
•1 cup of water (give or take depending on the size of your pan)
•A burnt stainless steel pan that was left empty and unattended on a heated hot plate. oops!.
•A scourer, because I can't find any way to avoid it entirely

Just need to soak it. At least 24 hrs.

Thanks Pericles and Lythande1 I will attempt both. Cheers.

I soak for a day or over night (depends how badly burnt) with a strong solution of dishwasher powder . works for me.

Neat bleach will remove it in no time. Just soak it for a little while and then wash.

I use a handful of washing soda, bring to boil in pot, make sure it doesn't boil over the top, put lid on and leave overnight. Never fails.

If really bad it may take several goes with the vinegar and baking soda. Then lots of hard scrubbing.

Now if this a NOT stainless pot - meaning it is aluminium or copper or any other metal (as a lot of older jam pots are) then PLEASE do nothing of the above but soak in hot soapy water for a few days!

Definitely do not use bleach, baking soda or any other chemicals. They work perfectly well if it is stainless pot. But not for other metals.
