I'm getting very frustrated with the stainless.  I started cleaning up the 5qt dutch oven from calpholon.  I washed it with soap and water 3x, plus a little scrub with a stainless steel bud thingy and I can still rub grey off on a paper towel when it's dry, on the inside.  Two of them, the 2.5qt and one of the 10" frying pans, are fine.  I've washed them and I can't get any grey matter on a paper towel.  And it happened after about 3x.  Here, this bigger pot isn't submitting.  Which is irritating.

Quoted from TJ
Either one!  After all, glass is just melted sand.
Never thought of that

JJR - perhaps the stainless just aren't meant to be cleaned that way before they undergo heating with use? Although you say the 2.5qt and one of the 10" frying pans are fine??!!

Well, I finally got it to clean up.  I sprayed some vinegar and water solution on it and let it sit for a bit and washed it again 2 more times and I can't get any grey matter to come off on the paper towel.  So, I think it's good to go now.  I probably still need another 1 or 2 saucepots, and maybe another fry pan.  If I don't get the cast iron cleaned up.  

I'm seriously thinking about investing an a Le Crueset saucier.  They have 2-1/4 or 3 quart with a handle and a vent hole on top and it says it's good for rice and other things.  I might like that quite a bit.  Although they're heavy.  I think I'd just leave that one on the stove top as I use something like that every day, and it'd be pretty.  We'll see.  Their expensive.  I might just get some revere to try though too.

If anyone has any other suggestions.  I did see this company called xtrema.  Which is another enameled cast iron and was being promoted by some healthy magazine.  And I'm pretty sure it's the same stuff Dr. Mercola is selling and saying it's the best option.  They seem to be a hair lighter than le crueset in similar sizes.  Anybody have that stuff?

I just noticed that the rims of the last pot I'm cleaning leaches the grey stuff on paper towel.  And then I went back and checked the last two pots and SURE ENOUGH!!!  Waaaaahaaaaa.  I have to clean those up too.  Well, I'm pretty sure after some cleaning they'll clean up.  I just never noticed this in the past when I've bought stuff, how much cleaning they'd need before not having grey c**p come off.  It's kind of frustrating.

Well, my wife is at present checking out at the Le Creuset factory outlet store.  We got a 9" skillet, a 8 qt stockpot (that's enamaled steel), and a 2.75qt soup pot .  The 5 qt SS Kitchen Essentials Dutch oven is going back.  I'm tired of trying to clean all these up.   Although I think I'm going to keep the 2.25 SS sauce pot and the 10" omellete fry pan.  I'll just have to keep trying to clean those.
