Pour a generous amount of any vinegar into the pan, and add water. Place the pan on the stove, and turn up the heat to bring the liquid to a simmer. After a few minutes, turn off the heat.
Covering the pan helps to reduce evaporation of the liquid while simmering and clean the upper sides of the pan. However, if the burned food is causing a smell in the house, leaving the pan uncovered allows the vinegar to provide natural deodorizing to eliminate the odor.

Pour dry baking soda into the slightly damp pan, and use it as a scouring powder. Baking soda has the right amount of abrasion to lift the stain without scratching the pan.
