Cleaning a Burned Stainless Steel Pan

How do I remove black burnt stains and restore luster/brilliance to interior of a pan? While boiling eggs I forgot and the water boiled out! My aluminum stainless steel pan has black burnt marks and no luster. I left baking soda in pan to many days and still have black burnt stains and no luster to pan. What do I do to restore pan?

Boil water in the pan. While the water is boiling, sprinkle in some baking soda. Let it fizz a while, sprinkle in some more. After it stops fizzing, let it boil a few more minutes. Turn off the heat, let the pan cool off and wash with your normal dish detergent and scrubby. It should come off with minimal elbow grease. If the baking soda doesn't work, wash the pan and try boiling some white vinegar in the pan. After it boils a few minutes, turn off the heat, let the pan cool, and wash normally. Smelly, but definitely works.

Get some powdered Oxyclean like you add to your laundry! This works well on thermos's too. Here is a link for instructions. I have done this with boiling water in my sink to avoid it foaming over on my stove.

Fill with warm water and add a fabric softener sheet, let soak about three or four hours or overnight. You will be surprised how good this works! Amazing!

If the above tips don't get it back to new, try using a product called Bar Keepers Friend. It's a powder that works wonders for stainless steel and porcelin.

I keep fabric softener sheets under the sink for this purpose. Just add water to cover burn.

I forgot to mention that you should let it sit overnite. I usually stick the pan in the oven.
