    I overcooked rice in a pot, now pot has burnt bottom. Help!

    Hello,

    I was cooking rice (boiling) in a pot. All the moisture ran out and the layer of rice in contact with the pan has turned black. I haven't had the chance to give it a good scrubbing, but i'm worried that I can't get the pot looking like the brand-new condition it is in.

    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.

    The pot will be better than new. The rice has infused its essence. You'll never burn rice again (unless you're a slow learner).

    pastalavista: I'm not sure if you're serious in your first two sentences.

    I'm not sure you're serious about your problem. It's only a pot. I actually prefer a well seasoned pot to a brand-new one.

    Remove the burnt rice without scratching the pot. In other words, do not use an abrasive pad.

    You have probably oxidized the metal in the pot (black spots, sometimes, white spots); therefore, add some vinegar to warm water and let it soak. The acid in the vinegar should remove the oxidation.

    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.

    No support requests by PM please.

    Yeah, as syzmon_g said, the key is letting it soak, and get a nice abrasive scrubber sponge if you don't have one. If it's a bare aluminum pot, there will be a stain, but it won't affect any future use. After letting it soak before and after and giving it a nice scrubbing, there's not going to be any flavor that carries over into whatever you're cooking in it next.

    Edit: Old_Gray_Wolf, neat tip. I'll have to try that in the future myself. Thanks!

    Open a terminal and enter the following command:

    suto apt-clean pot

    Then simply input your password.

    +1! The only thing I would like to add is that the trick is to use machine dishwasher detergent and leave it overnight!
