It's a shame that there aren't more checks and balances
    I know famita, it works both ways doesn't it, sadly enough.

    A ring of mushrooms, formed by fairies at night while they danced... That is what my mom told us when we were little... actually I think it is formed over rotting plant material, but I like the fairy story better.

    One of my high school teachers had a story similar to your mom's. Her version was it was the ring within which the fairies danced in at night. I've seen them (the rings...not the fairies! ) in my yard before, and I live in the city. Everytime I see one mushroom growing, I look for the ring and frequently find it.

    Does anyone know what to use to get a scorchy, burnt on, cheesy mess out of the bottom of a stainless steel pot?

    If just soaking for a while with hot sudsy water doesn't work, I've had good success with brillo pads and/or Dawn Power Dissolver (blue spray bottle). I'd still soak for a little bit first though to loosen things up.

    Elbow grease and a stainless steel scrub pad.

    I generally take the path of least resistance: soak it in HOT soapy water. Works for me every time

    I boil water and dump it into pot and let it sit. I try to keep changing out the water and never let it cool off. That way I usually don't need to do any scrubbing. The water lifts the baked on goods right off.

    I soak with hot soapy water, but I use teflon pots, so I can't scrub with metal. What I use are the little, square, brown, plastic scrapers from Pampered Chef. I'm sure there must be equivalents in kitchen stores.

    If you throw some baking soda into the bottom of the pan, add hot water, let soak, it actually works.
