Burnt Stainless Steel Pan

How do I clean the inside of a stainless steel pan that is burnt inside due to water evaporating?

Burnt Stainless Steel Pan

I simmer vinegar and baking soda with very little water in any burnt pan for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Drain pan and while it is still warm scour with dry baking soda and damp scouring pad if needed. Seldom have to do it more than once before it is clean. This works on stainless and even cast iron, (which of course should not be cleaned with soap). (08/24/2006)
