Push all the water out of the bottom of the pan using the toilet brush then use a product such as ACT it is a strong toilet cleaner descaler.
Leave it for a while and then scrub again.
It usually works for me

Thanks Terry.

Have you used TO4 oven cleaner? Smiley

Or Try STC Clver Product never failsus, in real bad circumstances we use an acis wash. But always empty bowl first.

Yes we have used TO4 and as a biodegradable cleaner it's not bad
However if it is really burnt on then try Brillo oven cleaner its about 25 and it is caustic so be careful where you put it, but it does the biz
