How to Get Cooked-On Grease off Pans?

What really works to clean cooked on grease off pans? It seems like I have tried everything, cream of tartar/vinegar, baking soda/vinegar, baking soda/water, Dawn and Ajax. Right now my house smells of vinegar so bad my chest burns from breathing it. Please help.

Used coffee grounds mixed with water and left on overnight usually loosen the worst grease, baked on food, and burnt food. (03/21/2009)

I read on here to use Mr. Clean eraser and yes I know it says not to use on stainless steel, but I had burnt food and tried everything. I did try the eraser and it worked like a charm. Use it as a last resort. I figured if it didn't work I would have to throw it away. But it did work. (03/23/2009)

Biological washing powder, the pure sort and hot water. Soak over night and Bob's your uncle.

This works everytime. I fill the bottom of the pan with about one to two inches of water and Dawn dish liquid. I then bake it for about 15 minutes at 350*. I take it out let it sit for about 5 minutes and then wipe off anything that is burnt on. (03/24/2009)

For starters, as another poster said, "never" use Pam. It leaves a build up. I suspect this is what is actually on your pans, not grease.

However, if you have burnt on residue, Bon Ami is a wonderful product (similar to Barkeeper's Friend which is what I used to use until my cleaning lady recommended Bon Ami). This will not scratch. I use it on my stainless steel appliances for cleaning instead of the stuff recommended.

Good luck. (03/24/2009)

The navy uses coke to clean ovens. I'd try that rather than elbow grease and powders.
I'd leave it on the grease overnight, rinse and/or repeat the next day. (03/24/2009)
