I am sure many of you already knew this, but this tip is new to me, so I will share. I got this Paula Deen cookware set for a birthday gift several years ago. They are stainless steel with copper bottoms.
SO pretty to the point that I did not want to use them, pretty. After several years of use they were looking kinda ragged. I heard that you could use Easy Off oven cleaner to get them back to that gorgeous mirror finish. I wasn't expecting much but it was totally like an infomercial. All of the stains wiped right off! I was so impressed that I wanted to come share this tip with you!
