If you want to get the last little drops of caramel from pot, heat it until it gives way enough to loosen. When you've spatula-d out all you can, fill pot with hot water & boil caramel out.

Agreed with Shuna. If the caramel has hardened, I usually fill the pot with water and bring it to a boil. It loosened the caramel right up and you can pour it out.
