Try filling the pan with hot water and 1 cup of powdered dishwasher detergent. Bring to a boil on your stove, and simmer for 1/2 hour, watching that it does not boil dry. Add water if needed. Scrape the burned sugar with a spoon or other tool with an edge with the water still in the pan. A lot should come loose.

Dump the water, and scrub with cleanser and a scrubby. If what is left does not come off with scrubbing. repeat entire process. This has worked for me, and may work for you. The pan is unusable as is. The cheap detergent from the dollar store works fine for this if you don't have a dishwasher. Good luck with your pan.

,I tried the heated dish washer soap overnight; that got a lot of the easy stuff off. Next I tried the baking soda and boiling for an hour or so; that got some more of the harder stuff off. Finally I used the boiling in Hydrogen Peroxide for several hours; that got the really stuck-hard final crust off with some wooden tool chipping.


Finished that off with a cloth pot scrubber pad for stains remaining. Next time, :( , I'll go right for the HP method.

Was making some sugar water for the humming birds. Left the stove and forgot about the mixture. Making the mixture in an stainless steel pot. The sugar water was burnt black and smoking. Thank God nothing caught on fire, but the pot is extremely black and can't scrape any burnt off. PLEASE HELP!!!
