These white stains started appearing on my 15 year old Wolf cook top.  I have tried Bar Keepers Friend, Comet, Dish Detergent, and toothpaste (from Google).  None of these have worked.

Any suggestions, please would be greatly appreciated.

cheers

I remembered I had some stainless steel cleaner ...Lloyds Gleem It.   And guess what, it worked with a lot of elbow grease so Mitch thanks for twigging my memory, duh.

Hi, I bought this 14cm stainless steel pan the other day, put a few small potatoes in it to boil.  When it came to washing-up, we saw these stains on it.  What are they and is the pan safe to use?

The potatoes and water went in first.  Anyway, it is stainless steel - should that happen?  I've had stainless steel pans before for a long time without that

Sure - lots can happen to stainless steel. And I guess it depends on the stainless steel.

There's really nothing to scrub off - it's perfectly smooth.  I rang the company, Chef Set, and they're only open two days a week!  I expect it is a very low quality product.  I would like to know though if anything is likely to leach into water or food if I use it again so I'll give them another ring on Monday.
