I have found very hot water and a good dose of dishwasher powder or tablet to be effective.

I like Andy's idea now. You should be able to eventually take a spatula and scrape it. If it's really that thick it may be over for it.

Anything grungy like that, I use an Industrial strength degreaser - but EasyOff is almost the same! Go with the oven cleaner!

get a good, semi-flexible butter knife, or a putty knife, and try to chip away. wear gloves just in case something cracks or breaks. once you have a little spot chipped thru, work on the edges therein.
often, the stuff burnt on is petrified, but has not truely bonded with the glass, so you may be able to scrape it away.

I like the little square nylon scrapers that come with Pampered Chef's stoneware. They work really well for this kind of thing.

Sodium Hydroxide (AKA Caustic Soda / Lye) will shift it.
make a strong soln of this and leave it to stand in the dish over night, that should remove it quite well, be carefull though it`s equaly good at removing flesh too, so keep it somewhere safe and wear gloves (eye protection if you can).

the other alternative is to go All the way, and put your dish back in the oven and put it onto it`s highest heat for a good hour or so, turning the whole thing into pure carbon, that stuffs really easy to remove then :)

LIke several other ideas, I will soak it as best I can, then scrape it with anything from a table knife to a putty knife (You will not have to worry about scratching the glass, as it is quite a bit harder than stainless tableware), then with a scotchbrite scouring pad to get the remaining bits. But I've never cooked anything that was quite as burned on as what Cactus describes...


My DW on the other hand lacks patience, and tends to try to do things to fast sometimes.... ............ Since we have the deal that the one who doesn't cook gets to do the cleanup, I usually get to clean up her messes

I'm embarrassed to say that I probably would have thrown it away. Hours X my time = new pyrex.
