I recently received a Cuisinart stainless steel roasting rack and after baking a chicken in it, I have been unable to get it clean. I hesitate to use harsh cleaners or serious scrubbing because I don't want to scrape and damage it, but it's driving me crazy! What's the best way to clean a stainless steel pan like this?
