      Thank you for your response. I have Barkeepers. I use it on my stainless steel sink but never thought to use it on my pots. Thanks again.

    Barkeeper's Friend in the gold container will make your stainless steel pans look brand new. Most markets & hardware stores sell it. A tall conrainer is approximately $3.00

    Ball up a piece of aluminum foil and scrub away.
