@ebet24:  Use oven cleaner – the spray kind.

Have you tried oven cleaner? Is that what Bar keepers friend is?

I use Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Servace Scrub, which I usually buy at Target. It works amazingly well and is not as harsh (for you or the environment) as Comet. If I run out, I used baking soda and white vinegar, but it takes much longer. You should avoid using things like scotch brite pads because the scoring will make food stick more in teh future.

@ebet24:  I use a dishcloth or a sponge that is non-abrasive. My cookware (All-Clad D5 stainless steel) came with a care guide that specifically instructed me not to use things like Scotch Brite pads. I’ve had Calphalon pieces before, though not stainless steel ones, and they came with care instructions, too, so if you still have yours, that might be a good place to look for more advice. Scotch Brite makes a sponge with a scrub side that is specifically for delicate care, so you could always use something like that too. If you buy one of their other non-scratch sponges, make sure you don’t use excess pressure or it can still scratch stuff. Note, these are the sponges; I wouldn’t use the pads at all.

I have a Calphalon skillet that I’ve burned things on before. I soak it off as much as I can, and then gently scrub with salt and lemon juice, which scrubs off the burn and stain and also restores the shine.

@ebet24:  Comet Stainless Steal Cleaner will do the trick & not stratch. I caked on food horribly on a pot one time when I was simmering meat for hours and NOTHING would take it off. I finally tried the Commet Stainless Steal Cleaner & it came off with little to no elbow grease. Just put it on, make it into a paste, let it sit for a few then scrub it off. Should be good as new 🙂 Good Luck!!
