Rainbow Pattern

Rainbow pattern on the bottom of on stainless steel pan?

I have a rainbow pattern on the bottom of one of my stainless steel pans. What is this all about? How do I get rid of it? Do I have to? Is the pan still safe to use? Etc.

That happens for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's minerals in the water, the starch from cooking potatoes or canned beans and sometimes just because.

The best remedy is Barkeeper's Friend. It's a powdered cleanser that works great on stainless (and more!). It's gentle enough not to scratch but tough enough to remove even burned on things. Cheap and made from rhubarb leaves.

Just dampen the pan, sprinkle the Barkeeper's, smear around with a sponge and give it a couple minutes to "work". Scrub, wash and rinse to remove the residue.

Another thing that works but not nearly as well as the Barkeeper's is cream of tartar; the stuff that is used in meringues to help stabilize them. Dampen the pan, sprinkle a bit of cream of tartar in there, smear it around and let it soak a bit and then scrub.

Your pan is safe to use even with the rainbows. I use the Barkeeper's because those stains annoy the heck out of me and I store many of my pans on a hanging pot rack. So I want them to be shiny and all "pretty" because everyone who comes in the kitchen sees them.
