I think I just ruined my allclad saucier pot, help!
- MVNYC Nov 21, 2007 08:17 AM
So I work from home, I was heating up a little water in my saucepan and ended up getting a call and forgetting about it. So as you could guess all of the water evaporated and the pot contiued to heat up. It must have done this for a good half hour or so. I was left with some black marks on the inside and the outside turned and almost copper colour. Is there anything i can do to fix this, any tricks?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance,
At this point you might need something extreme. I would recommend the "green" scotchbrite pads (there are other colors) that you can get at your local hardware store and a tube of "Flitz". Polish it going with the grain and it might come around. Is it warped?
In this case I wouldn't use a coarse scrubber, these aren't those kinds of stains (unless you have scarily hard water, maybe.) Barkeeper's Friend will probably work, but this is really the place for a chemical SS cleaner (look near the other metal polishes.) Copper polish usually works for this too, brass/general polish like Noxon should work also if you happen to have that around.
Depends on what you mean by "fix this." If you want it to look like new. probably not. But, unless some metal has melted, just clean it with Barkeeper's Friend as best you can and keep on a-cookin'.
