Calphalon Contemporary Stainless -- Stains?!
DH and I finally decided it was time to get rid of our junky old pans we collected through college and took the plunge and bought a set of Calphalon Contemporary Stainless. The pans are great to cook with... they're not non-stick so obviously we expected they might be a little harder to clean... but what we didn't expect was that now, after less than a month, they have whitish spots on them that won't come off even with Bar Keeper's Friend.
Does anyone know what these spots are or what is causing them? We have a water softener, so I don't think they are hard water spots.
We have washed the dishes in the dishwasher (since they are specifically noted as dishwasher safe), but even when hand washing we get the same results.
Should we just call it and return the set and pay the small increase to go to the Infused Anodized?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
