I hate it when that new shoe look disappears after those first couple weeks. No matter how much you scrub those pots and pans, the burn marks, grease and meat stains stick. The wear and tear on those nice pans discourage me. I continually find myself making the excuse that it gives the pan character.
The excuses stopped this past December. I found kitchen magic with Bar Keepers Friend.
Knowing that my mom needed new saute pans, I found a great deal at William-Sonoma. I bought her a pair of 10 and 12 inch All-Clad saute pans. I also fell for the motherly sales person who convinced me to add Bar Keepers Friend to the order.
After dinner one night I entrenched myself in the kitchen to wash the pots and pans. When I finally grabbed the All-Clad pan for a wash, I discovered those annoying brown burn marks clouding the shiny silver bottom.
Instead of scrubbing endlessly with no avail, I opened the Bar Keepers Friend. I powdered up the burn marks, sprinkled a little water, and hit it with elbow grease. With one solid effort the burn marks vanished.
The results amazed me. The pan resembled its former self without the discoloring.
The next day I applied the cleanser to another older pan with a blackened bottom. After scrubbing hard for a couple minutes, memories of a silver bottom came rushing back from under the black. The powder successfully attacked and removed two years of black burn buildup.
The Bar Keepers Friend erases the past with its cleaning magic on my pans. If you hate the burn and grease marks that won't ever leave your kitchen tools then you could probably use a stain detox from this cleanser.
Have you beheld the magical power of the Bar Keepers Friend? Do you know any other cleansers that effectively keep your kitchen clean?
