I don’t know why it happens but here’s what you can do about it; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jOA85TnH1g

When the heat is high enough for a prolonged period, there’s enough energy to cause the protein, fat, and sugar molecules in the food to react together, forming large chains (polymers). These large chain molecules are not soluble in water, so they stick together and form this sort of dried tar that’s very difficult to remove.
