How do I remove these stains?

I've been trying to search on how to remove the stains on my pans, but can't find anything that works. Could anyone point me in the right direction? I know they're not THE BEST out there, but they work :)

Try a damp cloth and baking soda. Or Mr Clean magic eraser. Or (if you aren't particular about the outside of your pots) use some steel wool or some Comet cleanser.

depending on the material of the pans - oven cleaner might do it

Thank you all. They're about 3yrs old. We clean them and all, but over time it just happened. Im not sure what type of metal they're made of. Im still trying to search that.

As for the suggested cleaning methods, i have tried baking soda, soaking in Dawn and an All Purpose Cleaner that I use for everything because it's so effective. Nothing has worked. I will try oven cleaner next to see how that fairs.

Before you try the oven cleaner, buy a bottle of Dawn Power Dissolver. Based on the photo, you may have to try more than one application. After the DPD, scour with Barkeepers Friend.

I have a friend whose pans looked like that. He also used Barkeeper's Friend, a mild abrasive cleaner, and the pans shine now.
