    What is the pot inner made out of? Stainless, non stick, aluminium?

    Stainless steel. So I could scrub it but i want to avoid where possible. Normally our dishwasher will get burnt on stuff off quite well but not this time. I have also tried a scrubbing brush. I might have to get the steel wool out.

    Buy a dustbuster. Kids can use them to help clean up their crumbs from at least 5 years old.

    Yes my dishwasher is great at burnt on too. After using a harsher abrasive like steel wool or gumption paste, you can use toothpaste on a soft cloth to buff out the scratches. You will still be left with a more matte finish than before though.

    Put it in the laundry tub with some laundry powder and water in it. It should just peel off the next day...

    Bicarb and vinegar to soak overnight, or dishwasher powder to soak. I have managed to get burnt bottom off my pressure cooker using both of these methods...

    I'm gonna give these a go for sure! I will start at the less abrasive ones and go from there. I will update as I try them.

    I do this more often than I care to admit 😫
    fill the pot with water & white vinegar up to the level you burnt it at & bring it to the boil, then put it in the sink, dump a heap of bicarb in it & leave it for an hour or two. All the black will scour off easily.

    I second a dishwasher tablet. I've had quite a badly burnt electric frypan covered in burnt marinate that normal scrubbing wouldn't lift. A friend told me to simmer a dish washing tablet in water for an hour or so till everything lifted. When all burnt remnants were off the stainless steel was super shiny
