the sad fact is, as much as i love them, i should not be allowed to have hard-boiled eggs anymore. this is not the first time, not by a long shot, that i have put my eggs on to boil and happily walked away... only to later here the sound of hard-boiled egg exploding all over my kitchen. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake"><br>
but this time it was in my nice new stainless steel pot! so the steel is all black now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> copper wool and baking soda isn't taking it off. is it possible?

Is it black on the inside or out? I would try something acidic, like lemon juice and steel wool. You can get different courseness/fineness of the wool, and start with something courser and work to a finer polishing wool.

Baking soda and vinegar... it will foam up. Let sit for at least an hour. Scrub with a brush or scouring pad.

But tons of sympathy...I just bought all stainless steel pots and pans last week to replace all my icky nonstick crap...I have loved cooking with them this week...I would cry if I did that (and I will sooner or later cause I am good at walking away and forgetting too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> )<br><br><br>
I am off to write all these tips given on my manual for the pots and pans for later use...Good luck and let us know if anything works....Love mylie xx <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
