Deemeyere cookware scratching

broodiztNovember 29, 2009

Hi all,

I have a question about Demeyere cookware. I just got a new GE Profile induction cooktop and I needed new cookware so I got a few pieces of Demeyere. It is scratching like crazy, even though I am babying the heck out of it. It is such expensive cookware, and I am trying to keep it scratch free, but nothing I do seems to stop the scratching. I am using the Demeyere cleaner, even though I am worried about the cleaner being somewhat toxic to people. (Does anyone know anything about this? I do rinse it like crazy, but if it is toxic I will stop using it immediately). I only use a soft sponge to clean it and it doesn't always get the stuck on food off so I boil it in water and vinegar. Sometimes I leave it in hot water over night, but a soft sponge still doesn't always get all the small particles of foodstuff off of it. I some times use the back of the blue scrubby sponge but not the green, but no steel wool. Dry it immediately. The only thing I can think of is I do use metal utensils on the cookware. Are you not supposed to use metal on stainless steel? Why is it scratching? Isn't it supposed to be scratch resistant? For about $200 a piece, isn't this stuff supposed to be easy to keep looking nice and clean and scratch free? You don't use teflon utensils on it, do you? I am so frustrated. Is it only me? I have read all the topics on this subject here but haven't really found an answer. Thanks in advance for any info on the above. Shellie

Whoa, Nellie. That's cookware you've got there--pots and pans. Theyare going to look like you've been using them and if they don't, you're not. It's like a new car: the first dig is awful, after that you relax.
