I would like to know if anyone happens to know how to get burnt milk from the bottom of a stainless steel pot?
What I do is soak it for a few minutes, then scrub it with steel wool. It doesn't take as much elbow grease as it sounds like--this is why I love stainless steel pots.
My daughter was making cream of wheat in my brand new stainless steel pots and burned the milk on really bad on the bottom. I filled the pot half way with water and added about a tablespoon of "real lemon". I didn't have fresh lemons. I let it boil for about five minutes and then gently scraped with a silicon spatula (no scratching). I don't know whether the lemon actually did anything or just the boiling water. I did have to get some last little bits of stain off using a wet cloth and a bit of baking soda.
My 85 yr.old MIL swears by leaving it set overnight with a paste made from baking soda and dish soap.
Thank you all for your suggestions! I was boiling milk in a ss pot, and yes, bottom of pot was burnt to a crisp. I tried s.o.s. pad, no luck. Was reading posting above to use lemon peels, however, did not have a lemon, so used lemon juice, let it soak for a few minutes and then used s.o.s pad and it came right off, hardly any scrubbing. Hope this helps you guys.
