Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Cleaning Stainless Steel

kitchen quick tips

Pour baking soda over and stuck or burnt on food. Cover with about half inch of water. Bring just to a boil while keeping an eye on the pot because this will foam up and you don't want it to spill out onto the stove. Remove from heat and let sit 20 minutes or so. Dump out the liquid then use a spatula to remove any remaining food that will pop off almost like magic. Wash your pan then polish if desired. Any stains inside the pot or on the outer bottom clean up nicely with Bar Keeper's Friend either liquid or powder. Buff up the outside of the pot or pan with a soft, dry cloth for a nice sparkle.

will this work with glass casserole dishes???

You can't put glass casserole dishes directly on the burner so this method won't work. Generally just soaking a glass casserole dish in hot, soapy water is enough to get any burnt or stuck foods off.
