    Help needed - I let a saucepan boil dry...

    Help needed - I let a saucepan boil dry... 2nd Mar 08 at 5:14 PM
    ..when I was trying to reduce a fruit sauce for a crumble. I think it must have been like jam just at the end as it's gone quite high up the sides of the pan. All that's left is a very dry mixture cemented to the sides and of the saucepan. I've had the pan soaking in hot water with bio washing powder, but it's not working.

    Does anyone else have any suggestions? It's a very heavy-based stainless steel saucepan which would be quite pricey to replace (30 for a small saucepan!)
