Hello all, new member and soaper here. I made a batch of cp soap on Aug. 5th, and was washing my usual cooking stainless steel pot and some of the soap got in there. Is it ok to still use that pot for food? Or should I consign it to soap use only? Thanks everyone!!

I wouldn't worry about using the same s/s pot for soap and cooking.

Many try to avoid using the same pot for food and soap, I do too (I have lots), but if you made the recipe properly then it is only soap and a little extra oil/fat, and even if you didn't have a successful recipe a good wash would take care of anything left in the stainless pot.
