I was faced one day with a crusty ceramic baking dish - some chicken bits burnt to a crisp, and quite beyond my meager scrubbing abilities to restore it to cleanliness again!
I discovered this little cheat on a whim, and I couldn't believe how well it worked! After you do this, you won't need to scrub your ceramic dishes after a crispy meal ever again.

Here's the drill:
Heat your oven to 250:
Sprinkle baking soda in your pan:
Fill it halfway with water:
And bake it at 250 for two hours, then leave it overnight in the oven.
It will look like this in the morning:
I was so excited - my fingernail could remove the burnt on gunk!
And with some water,
and a wipe of the sponge,
I must do the handles of this pan next....it's pretty splattery-dirty!
Every evening, after I've served up dinner, I do this so that it's baking as we eat, and then I wash it in the morning. No more Barkeeper's Friend or scouring pads!!
