Help! Think I ruined my pot forever
I have a large all stainless steel pot that I've wrecked. I put boiling water in it to get some humidity in the house and left it to boil for maybe 12 hours or so -- always making sure that the pot was constantly filled with boiling water -- it never ran dry. But when I emptied the pot, the bottom of it was extremely rough and there are some discolorations. There's also a rainbow-colored ring around the inside where the water line was most of the time. It's not my nice, pretty smooth-bottom pot anymore. Can anyone tell me what I can do?.
