how to clean a pot

I tried to cook some spun sugar last night to garnish a dessert I was serving to a friend. The entire endeavor was fraught with disappointment: I didn't have much sugar in the house, the sugar was dead hard, I burned the sugar, and then I worried about cleaning the burnt sugar out of the pot.

The truth is, there's no reason to fret about cleaning up burnt sugar. It may feel like concrete, but it will effortlessly dissolve in hot water.

Simply immerse the affected objects, and half an hour later they'll wash up like a dream.
