Scratching stainless steel pans?

Sorry for the stupid questions guys, but I believe this is the best way to learn without ruining my pans.

My stainless steel pans came with some stainless steel accesories, like a spatula, spoon, etc.... Can I use these on the pans, or will they scratch the inner part of the pan? Thanx again!

should be ok. you only really need to avoid metal utensils with silverstone and tin. never cut food in you pan, though.

Metal utensils on a SS pan are not a problem. You may get some minor scratches if you scrape hard but the pan is a tool, not a work of art. Marks are inevitable.
