How should I clean my pot???

So, the post about "That one good ole pot" made me need to ask this.

I burnt something (I don't even remember what, rice maybe??) in a pot I got from my Nanny about a year ago.  I don't use i now because there is black burnt stuff all in the bottom.

I tried to soak it, and scrub the heck out of it, but it didn't work. 

What should I do??

I've heard that baking soda and vinegar work.  Put some baking soda in the pot, add vinegar until burnt area is covered.  Let sit for a while then scrub with an SOS pad or scrubby sponge.

What kind of pot?  Stainless steel?  You might try to use oven cleaner...

 ooh i did this twice lol (you'd think I'd learn the first time).

I put kosher salt and baking soda in some water then let it boil till it came off... takes a few times but between boils I scrubbed and finally it allll came out!  good to as it was an expensive pot YIKES...

A suggestion from a friend.....(I have not tried this product myself.)

Simple Green Cleanser (Walmart) - let it soak
Use a soft scrubber to try to remove it.
(may have to repeat)

If its white, its probably ceramic right??? I have a ceramic sink and I use a scrubby sponge and a WHOLE LOT of Comet. SOS pad will probably scratch it.
