    Burnt Pressure Cooker Pan - How best to remove burnt??

    I tried a new BBQ recipe last night in my pressure cooker pan. I thought it sounded like too long to cook, but I followed the directions anyway. Anyway, it burnt and stuck to the bottom of the pan big-time (only about half of it was even edible). I've had it soaking overnight, some of it came out, but it still almost looks like it needs a sand-blaster to remove the remaining burnt.
    Is there any product or anything especially good that will loosen the burnt so I can wash it? I don't have a dishwasher, so please don't recommend a certain dishwasher cycle. Thanks.

    What is the pressure cooker made of? If it's Aluminum don't do this. However if it is Stainless steel you can spray it with oven cleaner like Easy_Off or Mr. Muscle The formulas that don't require the oven to be turned on to clean. Let it sit for a couple of hours then rinse and repeat once if necessary. Any little remaining stuff can be removed with a scourining pad. I've done it many times icon_smile.gif

    Have you tried baking soda and vinegar? The foaming action will sometimes help lift the burnt-on stuff. Just be prepared to use a lot of baking soda.

    You can also try letting it dry completely (maybe a few days) and then scrape it off with a stiff spatula (this is last-ditch advise; it worked for me on a pan with burnt milk)

    Try putting a dryer sheer (like Bounce) -it can be new or used - in the pot with some water and let it soak ovenight. This should loosen up the remaining "burnt" stuff.
    Good Luck!

    Teresa, try filling it with boiling water and soap. Then let it sit for a while. That should loosen it up so you can scrape it away.

    I always soak it overnight in hot water with some dishwashing liquid.Then i use a scoring mesh to scrub it up.

    It is aluminum; I did immediately soak in warm tap water with a lot of Dawn, emptied the water, re-soaked it overnight it more water (the recommended boiling) and Dawn, some came off. Now itís soaking in the recommended strong vinegar-soda solution, then Iíll do more scraping, as it is slowly-but-surely coming off.
    I love using these old-fashioned pressure-cooker kettles (actually one of them was my grandmaís), they last forever, and I love how they shine like new when you take a brillo pad to them. Thanks for all the help & advice, much appreciated!!

    I've had success with dishwashing powder (for machines). It's sprinkled over the burnt bottom and slightly dampened with hot water. Leave to soad overnight.

    Put in some "Jif"(not the peanut butter, lol, the dish washing liquid that works like magic!) and scrub it up nicely in the pan, leave it overnight and then wash thoroughly well the next day, should sparkle!
    I also like Inez's idea icon_smile.gif

    Charishma, we don't have Jif here, except for the peanut butter, but Jif does sound like a wonderful cleaner...kind of like how much I like Mean Green the cleaner that I like so much here...thank-you so much for your advice, much appreciated. icon_wink.gif
