Mine is baked on and I wondered what you use to get it off. Do you think a vinegar and baking soda soak would do the trick?

That might work. One instruction I read was to fill it with water, add some dish soap and put it on your stove top and simmer for thirty minutes. One thing I have tried was to use denture cleaner on the pots. worked really well to get the stains out and they are cheap (Bought them at the dollar store).

Yes, It really did work. My wife just also read today that if you put some salt and hot water in the pan and let it set for at least ten minutes and then it should wash clean easier.

Here is something I found. Hopefully, it will do the trick. How to remove non-stick cooking spray from pans & casserole dishes Many people love to cook using non-stick cooking spray. Not only can it prevent burning and food from sticking to your pots, pans and caserole dishes, it is also a healthy alternative to using oil and butter in recipes. But if you are a regular user, you have probably discovered how it can build up residue that seems impossible to remove. However, there is an inexpensive solution to removing non-stick cooking spray residue from your cookware. Combine one cup water, 1/2 cup bleach and two tablespoons of baking powder, and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for ten minutes, then wash as usual. Residue should be removed.

Thank you so much. I didn't want to have to get rid of the pans just because they were getting yucky.

The baking soda works like cleanser. You sprinkle it on and scrub. I have not tried it with non stick finish though.
