Any tips for cleaning a burned up pot?

palsh | Dec 14, 2008 08:49 AM

Ever leave your pot on and forget it, so it burns up and turns black... and perhaps other shades as well? I put it on to boil and forgot about it, now I have what seems to be a ruined pot. Is it salvageable? If so, I was wondering how. I don't know if industrial steel wool would do the job, but if so, what grade should I use?
