Does anyone know if pit marks on the inside of a stainless steel pot are dangerous to your health? We have a pot that is one year old and now had pit marks.
Stainless steel is considered the best material for cookware because it is very neutral and easy to clean. Cooking acidic food in stainless steel can result in a small amount of chromium leaching into the food. Stainless steel that has been cleaned and scoured with a metallic pad may also leach a small amount of nickel into the food, when exposed to alkaline food.
If your food tastes metallic, you should consider changing your cookware.
