• You can try a mixture of a pan of water and a cup of white vinegar. pour in a cup of White vinegar, fill the rest of the way with water. Put it on the stove under a low heat. In a few hours the water and vinegar should work through the burnt sugar to get it off/out of the pan. Check it often, you want the water steaming, maybe a few little bubbles - and you want to keep the level of water high. If it is thick and in a nonstick pan you could try sticking the pan in the freezer over night - then use a spoon or other hard "safe" edge and try to break it off. That may not work with nonstick, and could even pull the nonstick surface off - at the very least lead to scratching. Sugar will become more brittle at a lower temperature and should break off.
  • Try "Easy of Bamm" .. don't know if you get it where you live .
  • You need a hospital strength [chlorine] bleach like Domestos. Cover the affected part of the pan in Domestos put on the lid and leave for at least one day : if it's really bed may take a week for it to work : if it's worked properly you won't need to scrub just rinse the pan well before use.
  • Sandpaper?

  • Fill the pan with water and try boiling it. A lot of the solids should come off. Then use orange or palm oil based pot&pan cleaner to get off the grime. You can scrub with a brillo pad or an abrasive cleaner like Comet but it would scratch the surface.
  • First option: Fill the saucepan with water and add a healthy amount of dishwasher detergent (not dish soap) and boil it for about 20 - 30 minutes. Second option: Spray oven cleaner (like Easy Off) on the burnt on stuff (outdoors, very strong fumes) and let sit 30 minutes before scrubbing (might have to repeat or let it sit longer.
  • Magic Eraser, and if that doesn't work, soak it in vinegar overnight.
  • Vinegar. Some people say put a fabric softner sheet in it and add water. I use vinegar, let it sit for an hour scrub off the top layer let it sit another hour or two scrub some more...
