Pretty sure it's salt marks. Keep in mind these are tools, notworks of art and tools get marked up when you use them. Those spots are harmless. It just irritates you because are brand new. It's like the first ding on a new car.

Thank you Andy- I need to remember this one lol. I sometimes feel like it's a personal affront when one of my precious cooking tools starts to show wear. Unfortunately it's inevitable though :(

1/2 can of BKF, the 18VDC power drill with the Mother's polishing ball (used normally for polishing car wheels and such), a 1/3 of a can of Nev-R-Dull metal polish and 2 hours of buffing later and I can only see 1 of the larger spots. Drill is recharging now.



OK... I'm kidding, I did get some BKF and did a once over on it and a couple of the smaller spots disappeared. Heck, they may get cooked away... who knows?

It's not your fault

I have one Cuisinart pan, the 1.5 qt size. Bought it for the size and nice design shape. Same thing happened when I used it the first time to boil something in water. Small pits that never really came out. I think it's because the materials used in China are inferior to US made cookware (if you can find it). My 40 year old Farberware made in US NEVER did that. So enjoy the design and price of the Cuisinart but realize that Chinese products generally will have problems with either the materials or workmanship. That's why it's cheap.
