The best method and products to use for cleaning stainless steel cookware.

The best method I've found to clean stainless steel pots and pans is to:

  1. Apply some All-Clad Cookware cleaner (can also use Barkeeper's friend, but I don't think it works quite as well) to the pot/pan
  2. Add an equal amount of water to turn the powder into a paste
  3. Use a Brillo Pad (or for the most stubborn stains, a stainless steel sponge), scrubbing in a circular motion, with the grain of the pan

You'll need...

All-Clad 00942 Cookware Cleaner and Polish, 12-Ounce

Brillo Basics Steel-wool Soap Pads

Fuller Brush Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Kitchen Cleaner Scrubbing Scour Sponge (optional for stubborn stains)

And in case you're interested, here's the cookware set I'm using at the moment:
