Blackened pots or pans?

I have a cute enameled pot that I made apple sauce in recently and managed to scorch and carbonize a bit of it (mostly the ginger and sugar) on the bottom of the pan. Cleaning said carbon off the bottom of the pan was a bit of a bear since you can't put these sorts of pans in the dishwasher or use anything to scour it due to the enamel being delicate and porous. I was at a loss until I read somewhere that enzymatic denture cleaners work on such burnt food problems. I gave it a try today and, wow, it worked a treat saving the pan for certain destruction.

Maybe completely useless, but I had no luck with just about every other tip and trick out there so I was pretty thrilled that a few tablets of efferdent saved my sauce pot from the garbage. I'm sure denture cleaner exists here so, just a handy FYI should anyone else have a similar problem in the future.

I second this.... My Mum has been using effervescent denture cleaners for any blackened, tarnished or tea stained kitchen items for years.

Cheap vinegar left overnight also helps.

I tried that, but it didn't budge a bit. It was pretty thick and stuck on there. The efferdent worked like magic.
