most $$ stores have BKF

It contains an oxygen bleach type chemical

Invented to help 1800s barkeepers keep their brass and copper bright. won't scratch.

Bon Ami is made from egg shells...also won't scratch...I keep both around the house all the time.

Bostonians don't talk like that. Hollywood's attempt to imitate a Boston accent sounds like that. Go Red Sox!

Try Bed Bath & Beyond, usually in the kitchen gadgets section or the section where they sell Emerilware/All Clad. This is where I buy mine and every store seems to have it...also their website has it.

I can't believe that Bar Keepers Friend is so hard to find up North since it originated in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1882 and I can find it in every major grocery store in my area (in the section with Comet, Ajax, Bon Ami, etc. - usually in the cleaning products section - near the dishwashing soaps).

They (BKF) have a website and if you have problems locating it in your state - you can click on the "Can't Find" link and they will tell you what stores in your state carry their products.

Someone throw Robo a treat ... the magical cleaning agent in BKF is "Oxalic Acid" - same "magic" ingredient in products like "Oxy-Clean", and several other such cleaners.

I have the same problem. I rarely see it in a supermarket. All the shelf space is dedicated to the big brands.

I usually end up at a kitchen store. I buy several cans at a time.

I found this old thread via search. I have no access to Bar Keeper's Friend her in Canada. My dutch oven is getting quite discolored and wondered if anybody has a proven method that works. I was going to try baking soda but am holding off. The bottom on the inside is getting quite brown over time and I would like to get it off.
