Tips To Keep Your Stainless Steel Shiny
By Camille Rhoades

I love my stainless steel pots and pans. The only thing I donít love about them is that I canít put them in the dishwasher and be done. While they do require a little more attention they are a wonderful asset in my kitchen. From time to time I get the blues when they start looking a little worn and dull but these little tips should be able to help get over some of the stainless steel blues.

  • Use warm, soapy water - or a gentle dishwashing cycle - for everyday cleaning, and dry your cookware thoroughly with a soft cloth.

  • Use a mixture of 25 percent white vinegar in water to remove mineral deposits left by hard water.

  • Remove burned-on food from a stainless steel pan by pouring boiling water into the pan. Let it set for 15 minutes. If the pan still won't come clean, let the water cool, then wash with warm soapy water and a scrub brush made of nylon.

  • For a tough, scorched mess in a pan try boiling Coca Cola for at least 5 minutes. This should break down the scorched materials.

  • Use glass cleaner and a soft cloth to remove fingerprints.

  • Polish stainless steel with a paste made of water and baking soda. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

  • Lemon juice on a clean cloth will help bring the shine back when your pans get a little dull. Just apply it liberally and scrub any spots that need shining.

    These will help if just general washing and drying arenít keeping them nice and pretty for you. Just remember to address them right away, leaving them on the counter until later just makes it harder. Now get the pans out and make something yummy. No need to fear a mess!
