My algorithm is as follows: using detergent, if I cannot clean it with
a dish sponge, I try cleaning it with a Tuffy (that being the name
brand for a scrubber made from a jumble of yellow and orange plastic
strands); if that does not work by itself, I use a nearly-dry
slurry of coarse salt, which usually works. Sometimes it takes
several go's at it with soaking in between.
I will do the above for either stainless steel or enameled cast iron.
However with stainless steel another option is steel wool.
I would never, ever use oven cleaner.
Just my opinion.
