I have a set of calphalon tri-ply copper cookware and find it impossible to obtain the bright, shiny finish they had prior to the first use. I clean them with the calphalon cream polish, then quickly dry them to avoid spotting, however, the next day I notice darker swirl marks and other discolorations. I hang them on a pot rack rather than storing in a cabinet; would being exposed to the air make a difference? I would appreciate any tips/advice. p.s. I've also tried brasso and find the same disappointing results.
I am currently testing a set of copper bottomed tri-ply cookware for a review later on. The care manual stated that this discoloration is normal. Just for the heck ooof it I tried barkeeper's Friend on the copper. Came out nice!

ok--let me know how it works for you.
the calphalon cream does do a good job with the oxidation (they look good as new after i rinse them) , however, it's a few hours after i have dried the piece that i notice the color turning darker (a dull, darker copper rather than the bright, shiny copper). anyway, let me know how the lemon juice works and thanks!
