The inside of a stainless kettle burnt after I forgot I was steaming beans. How do I clean the kettle?

I usually start by boiling some water in pan with baking soda just to heat the water and then let soak overnight.
Lots of gunk will scrape clean then with a spatula. I look at what's left and use a scratcher or steel wool pad.
I watched an episode of "How Clean Is Your House" and they just poured a can of Coca Cola into the burnt pot, enough to cover the burned bits, and brought it to a boil. They allowed it to cool. The burned remains then just whisked off. (07/30/2010)
I finally after trying many chemicals found the answer. I mixed the muratic acid that I use for my pool in equal amounts with water and poured it in the pan. In about 15 minutes all the burnt food was floating. No scrubbing.
EDITORS NOTE: Muratic acid is NOT meant to be ingested, it can in fact cause severe damage to the human body if ingested. Please don't use it as a cleansing solution for items you cook on or eat from. (09/08/2010)
