We use hot water and vinegar to remove the oxidisation that happens over time to our kettle.
    Does "removing oxidization" equal getting all the black stuff out and having a perfect pot again?

    Yep!

    And, I still have two fully functional Presto cookers. They are better than a microwave oven for some things, and just about as fast for something like a roast

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Dual boot or use VMs if you want. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    Please help. Can I bring the pot to perfect condition? How?


    UPDATE: I'm completely serious about this thread. It was a new pot of a new friend. The pot looked like a pot a professional chef would use: a Lagostina one. The pot looks like brand new. It still had the adhesive sticker on its side. I had just made friends with this person, and I feel really awful about this.

    Hopefully...

    If I were you I'd try a combination of the advice you've gotten.

    1. First remove as much dirt as you can by washing manually with soap and water.
    2. Then leave it overnight in water with a machine-dishwasher detergent (not tablet, but the usual kind)
    3. Use hot water and vinegar on the stains that remain, as suggested above.

    (I've never tried lisati's solution, perhaps that'll work as well...)

    This. My wife eats rice 3 times a day.. Just soak it and it will come loose for the most part then a little soap and water then next day will clean the rest.

    As many have suggested if you leave it to soak over-night with some mild detergent or dishwasher detergent it should come clean. If the rice only burnt a bit it should be fine. If it burnt badly, don't be surprised if the metal is permanently discoloured. In that case there really isn't anything you can do to make it look new again. Clean it as best as you can and apologize profusely. Good luck!

    one of my past roommates had a bunch of cast iron pans and i remember that procedure vividly. i hate the weight of the things though.

    i would let the pans soak in soapy water over night. they should clean fine after that. i'm guessing there will still be some discoloration from like water marks or something, but that's kind of inevitable. the way i would play this off to your friend is to just pretend like nothing abnormal happened if you don't have to talk to your friend until tomorrow, since soaking the pot over night should work. but if you can't hide it and have to explain to your friend why the pot has to soak over night, then just be like "oh, i cooked rice and it's stuck a little." if your friend has cooked rice before, then he/she should understand. don't be like "oh my gosh, i'm so sorry. i made a big mistake" because that's just not true. burning rice is a perfectly normal thing to happen, so you shouldn't blow it out of proportion. if your friend gets angry at you that the pot has to sit over night, then i'm sorry but that's a little ridiculous. it's a pot.

    Boil some water mixed with baking soda in that pot. That will help.
