Every once a while I make a wonderful dish whose remnants cling to the casserole pan or pot I made it in. Cleaning used to be a nightmare. However what I do these days is let the casserole pan soak for a while. There is no sense using lots of water and soap and lots of elbow grease to try and pry food bits off the cooking surface. Better to fill it up with sudsy water and revisit it the next day. Saves water, soap and lots of frustration.
