How to clean all-clad stainless steel pans?

I just got a set of all-clad Stainless steel frying pans, they are very nice yet they didn't come w/ instructions to care for them. I have never cooked w/ stainless steel cookware so I really don't know much about them. I was told they should have a lifetime warranty on them, but I don't want to reck them. I would appreciate any information I can get on stainless steel cookware. Thanks.

Answer:

Here's what All Clad has to say: Cleaning Cleaning the Stainless Steel Interior: Immerse in warm water. Use a fine powder cleanser with water to form a paste. Apply paste using a soft cloth. Rub in a circular motion from the center outward. Wash in hot, soapy water, dry immediately. DO NOT USE oven cleaners or cleansers with chlorine bleach. DO NOT USE steel wool. Cleaning the Steel Stainless Exterior: The polished stainless steel exterior of All-Clad Stainless requires very little care. It may be polished with one of the available commercial stainless steel cleaners, rubbing in a circular motion. Rinse in lukewarm water. We do not recommend using steel wool, steel scouring pads or harsh detergents. Nylon scrubbing pads are safe to use. You may wash Stainless in the dishwasher. The cleaners that they're talking about here are: Soft Scrub Bon Ami Barkeeper's Friend Those are the LEAST abrasive and won't harm your pans.....look for them in the cleaning aisle of your supermarket......How do you like your All Clad, BTW?? Just wondering......Enjoy!! Christopher

I bought a badly scratched-up 11 inch All-Clad Frying pan off Ebay for $23.00. I needed a large all-clad frying pan. I took it out to the garage and first cleaned it with an 8 wire brush on my bench-top polishing / grinding machine. Then I installed a 8 polishing wheel on the bench grinder. I used some polishing creme I use on car parts that I bought from Caswell s Plating. Auto polishing for your car will work too. The outside polished up like a mirror - as good as my new All-Clad pieces. Remember people. This is stainless steel. It s a tough, tough metal. You can work it like a piece of metal just as All-Clad did at the factory where they made it. It would take years to wear through the first stainless layer with a polishing wheel and mild auto polishing creme just as it would take a lot to wear through your cars paint. After-all; All you are doing is preparing an optical surface.

I have stainless steel as well. i clean them like I would with any pan. however once and a while when the bottems get kind of blackened due to spillage or flames I take one of those magic eraser things to clean them up. once every 2-3 months I polish the outsides with a nice stainless steel cleaner.
