Restoring Shine to Magnalite Pots

By Suzanne 1

How can I bring back the shine on my Magnalite pots after putting them through the dishwasher? They are very old and have turned dark grey. Please help.

Don't you just love those pots?? I have about 4 sizes and they are all I use anymore. I never put mine in the dishwasher, nothing ever sticks and if it does just a little soaking and it comes right out.

You might try scrubbing with baking soda, works on silver and other things.

Good luck!

I have a large magnalite collection & any good aluminum polish will bring back the shine. You can also use stainless steel cleaner like Cameo. Here is a link with many suggestions and links to products on restoring the shine.
