try some vinegar. Just put a half a cup or so in your sink full of water. It might take a little elboy grease but it does work.

when i get older pans they often have some glue in them from where the insert was stuck to the pan. Many people do not remove this and just go ahead and bake in the pan. So you may need some "Goof Off" to remove this.

Also, if the pans you have were washed in a dishwasher, you won't be able to get them back to the original condition. You can still use the pans, but you will never get the shine back on the metal.

Try making a paste of lemon juice & baking soda !! Just rub in circles - should help some !! Then clean in how soapy water

Bon Ami. I have used it for all of my pans from glass to teflon to anodized aluminum and all bakeware. I even used it on my backyard shed when some low-life spray painted it and the cleanser took the paint off without harming the coating on the aluminum. your pans may not shine like brand new, but bonami gets a lot of baked on gunk off. do NOT use on stoneware cooking surfaces, tho.
