Default Mash Burnt while brewing

Can someone give me some advice on how to remove the burnt mash from the kettle without using harsh pad to remove.?

I have soaked and now boiling to try to remove

That junk takes some elbow grease. You can use a scotchbrite or similar scrubbing pad in your kettle.

Soak overnight in oxyclean; a gentle wipe with a scrubby should take it off after that. I'd recommend against a scouring pad, as you can ruin the finish of your pot.

I hate to ask how the mash got burned on there to start with? The mashed grains should've been removed before the boil. Anyway,did you try soaking it in PBW? There are different mixing ratios on the jar of PBW depending on what you're trying to clean. It can soak that stuff right off.
I use stainless steel kettles so I can use a dobie & some PBW to scrub them clean.

I am a little confused about this too. Well, everyone has there own methods I guess. When food, not mash, gets stuck to the bottom of my pans, I pour dish detergent(Dawn) over the whole mess, then a little hot water. Leave it sit for a couple days then usually it comes right off.

I think I see what happened. Even with BIAB,some of the finer stuff gets through the mesh into the kettle. When I strain into the fermenter,I get 1/2-2/3C of grain gunk from the bottom of the kettle. Maybe mash in a smaller kettle that's just big enough to do a partial mash,then strain into brew kettle for the boil to elliminate the grain gunk. Make sure it gets done,anyway. That should take care of it.
Since I do a partial mash of 5lbs grain to 2 gallons water,I could get away with using the 4 gallon kettle for the mash,the 3 gallon to heat sparge water.
Then the 5 gallon kettle for the boil. With my large dual layer fine mesh strainer,this could be done to keep the boil kettle cleaner.
