    Does kleen king get the pot spotless on the first round of cleaning ?
    Most of the time, I can get it clean and shiny on the first round. Sometimes not much effort needed..just a good wipe with damp paper towels and at times more scrubbing effort with a good quality scourer. I guess it depends on the extent of the burnt marks. I also use it to clean the stainless steel burners of my stove.
    If I'm not mistaken, ace hardware also carries kleen king...If I go by sunway this weekend, I'll have a look around there to see if they have it.
    Try doing a few more rounds of scrubbing...make sure you have good quality scourers as well.Sometimes those crappy scourers cant clean well just after a few scrubs..Have you tried soaking the pot with baking soda?

    Kleen King is that good ?

    I used steel wool to scrub and only 70% came off !

    Is it because I used insufficient cleaning powder ?

    I don't know......maybe it's the extent of the burnt mark...No harm sprinkling more of the cleaning powder....You've at least managed to get 70% off.....I know how your arms must feel now after all that scrubbing.....But keep trying...

    My failed chemistry tells me that if it is carbon that is left on the pots then there isn't any day to day chemical that would be able to get it off other than to physically scrub it . I do have my fair share of having a few meltdown..... and now quite adept at that pot scrubbing task oredi...

    Get ready for some exercise and mind you that there isn't an absolute necessity to have a spotlessly carbon free pot to cook up a storm for the family dinner.

    If it's easy to scrub it off, there wouldn't be a need for this topic in usj.com.

    Any brighter solutions ?

    Scrubbing alone without any chemicals won't get it off no matter how you scrub.

    Use sandpaper

    If until now you still have not removed the stain, may I suggest something which you should have done from the beginning.

    Go to the hardware shop and ask to buy a fine grade "metal" sandpaper. Get your pot, dip it in water and sand away in a circular motion.

    I am sure you will get a shinning pan again.

    Pucman, I got feedback from my mom that she recently succeeded in cleaning a burned stainless pot like yours !!! Just scrubbed a few more rounds lah since you are more muscular than my mom.

    You told that you soaked the pot with black vinegar ? that sounds like the mild type. What not trying those white vinegar which smells stronger ? And you can try soaking with coke...
