How do you clean baked on food on a Pyrex casserole dish? I have tried the Oxy foam cleanser, Dawn Power Grease remover to no avail. It has settled into the glass.

Try a Mr. Clean eraser. I use them all the time on my glass baking ware and it works great! I like my glass baking ware to stay clean and shiny like new and this does the job without a lot of work.
I find if you soak with really hot water and dishwasher soap it will come right off. Also use this method to get off coffee and tea stains in the pots. (10/20/2006)
I use steel wool pads with soap in them, or even those copper pot scrubbers. Unless your glass pans are coated with some kind of color (instead of being colored glass) there shouldn't be a problem. (10/20/2006)
My suggestion is to soak first, then with a scrub brush use Bon-Ami cleanser (it doesn't scratch). If you can find Bon-Ami at the store, it works great. It's sold at most big grocery stores. There is no bleach in it, it's just a good old fashioned scrubber for all your cookery. (10/20/2006)
I use S.O.S. Pads. Works great! (10/20/2006)
Ketchup is cheap and really works. Just cover the cooked on crud and let it sit. I can't tell you how long to let it sit, by the time I get back to mine it's been at least an hour. May have to repeat, it's worth a try. Probably something you already have on hand. (10/20/2006)
If you fill your dish with really hot water and a Bounce Sheet and leave it to set over night, it will wipe right out. I have used this method for the worst burnt on stuff imagined and it has come off. Good Luck! (10/20/2006)
Soak it in baking soda. Always comes clean, then wash as always. (10/20/2006)

I have a lot of success with boiling water. I boil it in an electric hot pot, then carry it to whatever needs cleaning and pour it on the stain. Also works great on food spills on vinyl flooring. Just be careful that whatever surface you use it on can take the heat. Pyrex should be fine. Good luck. (10/21/2006)
A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser has worked for me. (10/21/2006)
Lots of ventilation and a single squirt of Easy Off oven cleaner works every time (except on aluminum, copper, iron, Teflon) on most dry glass or stainless metal unpainted surfaces to clean off baked-on foods. If very hard, black, thick food, leave on overnight and outside. If light food, leave only about 15 min. to one hour, and that should do it. Although we all avoid using
that chemical, if good ventilation is used, you will not die if you spray the item on the patio/porch on newspaper away from the door or pets, then time the food burn accordingly.
After a few minutes there is no odor or breathing danger from the fumes, and there is a low odor
low fume option in the brand, but it takes much longer to work. Do wash with cold water should you accidentally get any spray on your skin. Spray only the spot(s) at about 6-8", and when there is obviously no wind, just as when painting. Use vinegar to rinse off skin after cold water/soap should any drift. I use gloves and have never had a single accident externally or internally in 53 years of very infrequent use of Easy Off, and only for the tough food burns.
All cooks have burned pots/pans occasionally, not wanting to cook in the utensil until it is removed, so we need serious help once in a while, just not making it a habit. We can use caution as if using a match to light a candle or using alcohol indoors. God bless and give you wisdom.
Chore Boy Golden Fleece scrubbing cloths. They work great and don't scratch. (10/22/2006)
Put salt in, then water, and let it sit over night. This works great. (10/22/2006)
