Anyone have suggestions for saving an enamelware pot that has burned on food in the bottom?

Simmer water for 30 min, wash, rinse and repeat until the burn is gone.

The method I use is just a solution of water and white vinegar. Bring it up to a boil and just scrape away with a wooden tool.

Something like this was just asked about a week ago:

I swear by this method.

I'd just give it 20 mins for enamelware tho.

Soak soak soak. Fill with enough hot water to cover the burned areas by 1", then bring to a boil. Let stand until it cools, then scrub with a nylon scrub pad. You should be able to remove the crusted-on burnt parts, though the enamel may be stained underneath.
