Removing Burns from Stainless Steel Pan

I have a question about cleaning a stainless steel pan: I was heating a thin layer of olive oil in my big frying pan when I got distracted. The oil ended up burning and now my pan has a brownish haze on the bottom which scouring pads, dish soap, dishwasher, and TSP won't remove.


Any suggestions? Thanks.

I had the same problem, I wet down the pan, sprinkled on baking soda and let it sit a few minutes then used a sponge to scrub with the baking soda, it all came off. (05/18/2009)

As an last resort use "Magic Eraser". I did something similar and that was the only thing that worked. Wash really good afterward. (05/22/2009)

I have read that filling with water and a dryer sheet works. Let sit overnight and it will do the trick. Never tried it. (05/22/2009)

I scrub my pans, inside and out, with ketchup. They really shine. (05/25/2009)

I did the same thing and I also tried everything suggested on numerous web sites. I finally decided it was the shot and trying a razor scraper. I heated the pan slightly and applied a small amount of non abrasive cleaner. I applied gentle pressure as I scraped and the black and brown stains were removed. It did not effect the cooking or cleaning after doing this. Now my frying pan looks brand new. Hope this works. (08/06/2009)
