How do you remove burnt stuff from stainless steel pan?

Soak in soapy water overnight. Lather, rinse, repeat. Sometimes this can take days. But it will come off. If it is really bad and after you get the debris off, you may have to shine it back with steel wool. But, this is worth it. This is stainless, not some crappy aluminum that I would probably tell you to throw in the gutter and git anutter. If it got so hot that it turned blueish, it's still OK. But, it won't look like it did. Unless it's really thin, cheap Chinese job, it's still worth it.
