I actually have the liquid BKF. The foods could very well be the reason, as could the water I suppose. If throwing in a little BKF now and then keeps it clean, then so be it. As mentioned, it gets frequent use on my stainless stuff.
Perhaps I will use BKF, then use and wash with clean water, cooking a neutral-ish food (maybe just blanch some veggies) and see if I can narrow it down.
I appreciate the help.
Chili, pork shoulder braise, frying... so there has been a mix. I thought about the water, but thought the (hopefully) clean water from our water jugs would show if that was true. The "stain" still appeared.
I do have BarKeepers friend and should have asked if that was safe for the enamel. Without it, my stainless cookware would never be the same. I will give it a try. Thanks again
Anyone else have this experience?
I purchased this Staub back in February. It hasn't gotten a ton of use (maybe 8-10 times) but the last several times I've used it, after it gets washed in simple dishsoap and water, it dries with most of the bottom (but nowhere else) having a white-ish stain to it. This is my first Staub, I can't assume this is how they are supposed to look, but does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause it?
I thought it may be the water so tonight when I washed it I used water from our water cooler system, the "stain" still showed once it was immediately (as always) towel-dryed and allowed to sit in the open air.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
