When you have only one or two pans to scrub, try cutting a scouring pad in half. Not only will you save money by using only half the pad, but you will be sharpening your scissors as well when you use them to cut the pad!
If you have a pan that has badly burnt on food, put it back on the stove with water, add some automatic dishwasher powder, or liquid and boil the mixture and leave to sit for a few hours. The burnt on mess will literally come right off the pan with no scrubbing at all.

I know this tip works - I did it recently with a plain steel-wool pad. As an added bonus, one box or package of pads, whether plain or pre-soaped, lasts twice as long. Thanks for sharing!
If the pan is stainless steel you can spray it with eazy off and it comes right off.
