Help - Cleaning ss pans with copper core?

Posted by Colo_Lady (My Page) on

Since I have a newly remodeled kitchen, I didn't want to put my old pot/pan set in the new drawers. So I bought a new set from Costco, the heavy Italian stainless steel ones with the copper layer sandwiched on the bottom.

Here's the problem - I put one in the dishwasher and it tarnished the copper. (I have to use Cascade Complete in my new dw). I hate the thought of having to hand wash each and every pot/pan every time I use it. Is there a better way to do this? Advice? HELP?

I'm ready to donate them to Goodwill and get something cheap and easy!

Live with the tarnished bottom or polish it with Twinkle after you take it out of the DW.
Or donate them and buy something with a copper core.....copper between stainless steel. It won't be as cheap....but you won't have to polish.

Piece of cake. Next time you are at the store by you some Bar Keepers Friend, works great.

I not suggest using it all the time, or even using the diswasher, just my 2-cents worth.

For those water stains (white stuff) just use the cheapest vinegar you can get your hands on, no effort, wipe on, rinse off.
