    I do like them but don't even know if there is hope in bringing them back to life. Interior is great but exterior is a mess. I also had read that in some of them you might have problem cooking as the capper can react with heat, for some reason. Sorry but I do my cooking in the store. Can someone help? Where do I even begin, I tried the copper cleaner but it doesn't work well.
    The one with oxidized interior has no marking and I have no clue what is it? Seem though that it might come from the same cooking chef ????

      Love them as I have quite a few. I don't cook with them anymore but have not had any in this condition so not much help on how to clean these.

      I'm the adventuresome type & would try Easy-Off on a hidden area.

      Thank you dlpeterson and blunderbuss2 for your responses. I will check Easy-off as I had never heard of it. I also have some copper cleaner and might try that too. They just are so messed up.

      Try salt and white vinegar, along with a plastic scrubby. Lots of elbow grease. Its the condition of the tinning inside that really matters, as far as cooking.

      I once turned a rusty stove sparkling with lemon and baking soda.mayb u can try it out:)

      Fleafinder, what's a great idea. I have all of it at home and will give it a try. Thanks.

      Rockbat I have these citems at home as well and will try which works the best. Thank you. The interior is nice,so it's worth elbow grease work.

      If the above methods don't work out for you you can always try... Mr Clean Magic Erasers (sponge, they are amazing). I've never tried them on copper pots and pans before so I would definitely try it out on a hidden spot, just to make sure. Just an idea. Who knows... it may work.

      Thanks Tanni. I hope to have time to try all of the recommendation.

      My Country, I am not much of the cook. I hope to restore it and they still woul look nice hanging of the iron posts above the countertop, I hope.
