But I'm not sure I could spend that much just to have my pans match.
If I needed one that size, I'd buy it. It's at least $200 new. I have an All-Clad 3.5 quart saucepan, though. As was said previously, it will clean up nicely.

That's a Revere Paul Revere Signature Brand. A very underrated cooking po.t in my estimation. They bring $30 - $40 on ebay w/lid.

A lot of these have never been used and were purchased for display in coppertone kitchens.

They came shellacked to facilitate cleaning when displayed. To use you needed to remove the shellac. A simple job, unless the pot had been used without the shellac being removed. Then you had a black mess. You were lucky that it came clean without a lot of trouble.

Wrights Copper Cleaner will keep it in good shape, and removes less metal than BKF.

I would prefer to buy new one if this would be the price.

Posting to this very old thread, hoping to help someone else avoid a problem purchase. The pic posted by the OP is of an All Clad LTD pot that appears to have been run through the dishwasher, damaging the anodized exterior.

It's not dirty, it's damaged, partially stripped off. The coating on the exterior was not designed to be washed in a dish washer and has been partially removed. The choice here is to use steel wool, or similar to remove it entirely but it's not a great option. As there is aluminum under the coating, it will be a flat, dull finish. If shiny is the goal, then an All Clad model with a stainless exterior would be a better choice.

Here's a pic of what that pan should look like in good condition

All Clad LTD is my favorite cookware but even the later versions (LTD 2) purported to be suitable for the dishwasher, really are best hand washed. The Original LTD version of this pan will be ruined in the dishwasher and the manufacturers instructions make this clear.

As I mentioned earlier, a new one is about $200.

Wow! What a great find. The pot looks amazing. I wonder if Brasso would work well to clean such a pot, as it originally was made to clean brass, which contains copper. Just a thought.

If there are any cooked on oils on SS, making it looked tarnished, or not very shiny anymore, Barkeeper's Friend, and a copper scouring pad will shine it up nicely.
