I use Ezoff Oven Cleaner the non-toxic kind. I spray the pan then put in a plastic bag and let it sit over night. Next day I just wipe it off with a paper towel.

I have stains like this on cookie sheets. One cookie sheet has a finish on it. How do I remove similar stains from cookie sheets without hurting the finish?

SOS pads work great for this. They clean up glass and metal baking pans with no soaking required. Just wet the pan and swipe with an SOS...comes out great! Make sure you buy the pads that are already soaped.
