Safe to soak oats in all-clad d5 pan overnight?

Not sure if the water will damage the SS over time. Do I have to keep all of my pots and pans dry as much as possible or does it not matter?

  1. You can soak stainless steel cladded cookware (All Clad d5) overnight in water.

    1. Hey, Mustardeer:

      You're good. But wait to salt until you have the cooking boil roiling. Salt crystals left overnight can pit SS.


        1. Just put them in the pot and soak. Pour off the water in the AM, rinse and proceed. Not a big deal.
