Removing a Stain from a Magnalite Pot?

I boiled a large amount of water in my Magnalite pot. When I poured the water out there was a horrible "water level" black stain. What happened? How do I get the stain off? Is it safe to cook in this pot after removing the stain?

Barkeeper's Friend is great for cleaning pots.

These pots are mostly aluminum so Bar-Keepers Friend should work. Some people recommend using a teaspoon of bleach with a pot of water but I would not use bleach on aluminum but I do think you can use Cream of Tartar (if you have it).

Try not to leave anything on your pot for more than a few minutes (just while you are cleaning) and then rinse thoroughly as your pot may become pitted if not properly treated. You may have to clean it several times.

I recently overheard someone say they kept the outside of their aluminum cookware shiny by using the polish made for shining truck toolboxes.

Sorry - I forgot to mention that your pot is as safe to cook in as it has ever been. The black should not contaminate your food but it should be cleaned well (dish soap) before using.

I would try using a little baking soda....scrub well and it should take care of it.
