Specifically (if it matters), it is burnt-on rice on the inside of this pot. I'm afraid to use a butter knife or even a scratchy green scrubbie tool for fear of scratching off the enamel (I have learned this from experience), but I'm not having any luck with soaking and gentle-sponge washing.


TIA.

Have you soaked it, and then tried baking soda and the green scrubbie? That works for me. Baking soda helps give some abrasion, but is great for enameled pans and won't hurt it.

I suggest filling with water and boiling and let soak with the lid on for awhile. Any pan I've ever done that with it comes of with gentle scrubbing. Never had to do it on enamel though.

Simmer some tomato sauce for a long while. I accidently did this in one of my saucepans that had burnt-on food and it took it right off- no amount of soaking, scrubbing etc could do the job quite like the tomatoes- the acidity I think! Try it!
