I purchased this All-Clad MC2 8" pan, open stock back, oh,
maybe 1994, I think.
I don't use it often, it's not one of my work-horse pans.
I noticed this ring if you will, in the bottom of the pan,
going up the side maybe a quarter inch or so.
I've tried using my 3M Blue Non-Scratch pad, but to
no avail!

HELP!

I have no idea what I did to cause this,
and now have no idea how to fix it.

This doesn't seem to affect the pans performance...
it just looks itchy to me.

All opinions would be greatly appreciated,
MIA, Mahalo (thanks) In Advance group!

I have several All-Clad SS and other brand pans and clean them with BKF (Barkeepers Friend) as needed to take out stains like these. It'll look like new when you're done.

If you don't have any Bar Keeper's Friend on hand, try this. While the pan is dry, sprinkle it with baking soda. Now take a barely damp sponge or cloth and try to rub the film off. It works almost every time. That method will get all sorts of stuff off pans and other things, especially fat based stuff. It's my go to.

Salt, white vinegar, splash of water and a couple drops of Blue Dawn dish soap. Use a scrubby pad. Rinse well and dry. It should be nice and shiny. That’s how I clean my stainless steel pans and my Instant Pot liner.

I'll work on it some more, but that got the big stuff.

I've been using Bar Keepers Friend to clean my SS kitchen
sinks but never looked at the label!

Thanks Guys!!
I know the bottle shows a picture of a bathroom but I don't think that's the best place to clean a pan.

+1 for BKF - there is always a container of the powder behind my sink, and I use it for all sorts of things that get like that.
