I had my best hamburger of the year at Brad's Grill just north of downtown out Thompson Bridge Road (Hwy 60N). Some folk go for the "messy burger" -- huge with all the trimmings. I settle for the regular. Brad's wife is the baker and provides excellent cakes and pies -- try the Italian cream cake!

I think I just ruined my allclad saucier pot, help!

After a similar experience, I used all the usual -- BarKeeper's Friend, soda, salt, etc. -- and had just about decided my efforts were all useless. One "lazy" evening I left several items in sink hal-covered with dishwater. The next morning to my surprise the submerged half was shiny as new; the other half was still blue and bruised. The secret: a strong solution of Dawn dishwasher detergent. I hope it works for you.
