Multitasking too much while cooking dinner (or forgetting about a pot on the stove altogether) can only mean one thing: It isn't going to be pretty when you survey the damage that has been done to your favorite cookware after it boils over or burns. But before you throw in the towel and throw it out completely, we've got a few tried-and-true methods that can help clean up that burnt mess.
Fill the pot or pan with a layer of water. The amount of water you use will vary based on the depth of the pot and the area of the stain. You want the water level to be at or near the height of the stain while still providing enough room for the addition of vinegar and baking soda.
Add about a cup of vinegar to the pot, again adjusting the amount of vinegar based on the depth of the pot and the area of the stain. For very large burns, add more vinegar. For smaller burns or shallower pans, add less.
