Cleaning Copper Pots and Pans

Can someone please tell me how to clean copper bottom pans. I have had a set of Revere Ware for over 30 years. I use them everyday. I have used the stuff you buy in the store but it doesn't work well. Thank you in advance and have a great spring.

Sherri, the best product I have ever used on my pots and pans is called Cameo. It's a powdered cleanser; comes in a white plastic container and I've only found it at Wal-Mart. You will not believe how shiny it makes your cookware; they will look as good as new and this product doesn't scratch the surface. (02/13/2009)

I remember seeing on TV a program where they cleaned both copper and brass I believe with sour goats milk, but am sure that you could use cows milk (in the programe they had goats available) (02/14/2009)

Gotta add my two cents in for Bar Keepers Friend. I found liquid in the dollar section of our local Cardinal store but swear by the stuff in the can. (02/14/2009)

I've simply used Ajax or Comet cleanser (whichever is on sale) forever! I inherited my set of Revereware from my mother in 1995. She received it as a wedding gift in 1942! It is 67 years old and still goin' strong! (02/15/2009)

On my 50+ years old Revere pots, I have always poured about 1/4 tsp. of salt on the pan bottom and then added a small amount of vinegar and rubbed it around on bottom and sides.

As soon as salt and vinegar come in contact with each other you see the shine return!

Some people add flour to mix but I never found it necessary. (02/15/2009)

Having them bright and coppery sure does look nice, but it doesn't affect their performance. I gave up after a while when I decided that surely other things were more important! (02/16/2009)

The best thing that I've found is a product called "Brasso", intended for cleaning brass and coppers. I discovered this way back in high school, as I had to buy a container of it to clean/shine my collar brass for ROTC class. I didn't want to waste it, so was trying to find another way to use it, it sat on my mom's shelf for 4 years and then I got married and received a beautiful set of copper bottomed pots as a wedding gift, I thought of the Brasso then and pulled it out - WOW! It did a great job of clearing the tarnish and making the copper sparkle, and a little goes a long ways a bottle may last you several years. Good luck! (02/18/2009)
