Ask yourself how many times this has happened to you: You open your dishwasher expecting to find perfectly clean stainless steel pots and pans. Instead, you end up finding pots that have little white spots all over the place. Often this is because of calcium buildup or other mineral deposits on the cooking gear. Removing calcium deposits is a fairly simple matter. Here are some of the best ways that you can remove calcium deposits from your cookware.
These methods work well for most types of calcium deposits. However, there is a time when this won't work. In those situations it is because the metal has become pitted from use. There isn't a whole lot that a person can do to restore a damaged stainless steel pot or pan once it has become physically damaged. The best way to handle this is to prevent it from happening in the first place. You do this by being careful when using salt in your cooking. Only add salt to water after it has stopped boiling. Believe it or not, this is going to greatly reduce the chances of having a pot or pan that becomes pitted.
