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.

Another good tip is that even the hardest stuck-on food that doesn't dissolve in water will dissolve in baking soda & vinegar. Never use steel wool again!

There are lots of information about the clean a pot. these all tips are remarkable.I think, try some salt and ice in the pan - and swirl it around- as the ice melts, the salt reaction removes stuff from the bottom of the pan - we use this for burnt coffee in the pot all the time - not sure how it works for other stuff - but its not hard to try it.

Yes Hot water saves the day. At first it does look like a daunting task, but thankfully Hot water is a blessing.

Oo, very helpful! I'm afraid I'm a terrible cook, always burning things and then having to scrub the pans for hours, I'll try this next time ;) Does it work with other burnt-on foods or just sugar? I normally use warm soapy water and let it soak for some mins but that doesn't always work.

put some soap and water in the pot and putting it back on the burner works for me.
