Is this a mistake? (Too late)
My husband left something cooking too long in a good stainless steel pot and it ended up with burnt-on residue. After soaking, scrubbing, and scouring with little effect, I grabbed the oven cleaner, gave the pot a good spray, and left it for a few hours. The residue rinsed right off. The pot looks great, but now I'm wondering if this was a smart thing to do. Assuming the pot is well-cleaned before we use it again, is it all right or have I ruined it? Or even worse, do I run the risk of poisoning the family if I use it again?
