Cleaning Stainless Steel Cookware

The Do's and Dont's of Cleaning Stainless Steel Cookware

Stainless steel cookware is one of the most used type of cookware and is recommended by a number of professional chefs. One of the main reasons is its durability; expect it to outlast other types of cookware in your kitchen.

Aside from the usual round of cleaning your stainless steel pots and pans, you might also encounter problems such as grease and burnt food that somehow seems happily stuck to the bottom of your cookware. Regular dishwashing soap won't help much in these cases.

Unless you want to leave your stainless steel cookware looking like scrap metal, you should know how to give it proper care and cleaning. Here are the do's and dont's and as well as other tips in cleaning your stainless steel cookware.

N.B. - If you don't have stainless steel cookware, see our extensive Cookware Cleaning Guide for a complete list of  different cookware types. Alternatively, see our Nonstick Cookware Cleaning Guide for tips and hints on cleaning Scanpan cookware.
