How frustrating is it when you begin the clean up phase of the meal and staring right back at you are your formerly brilliant, shiny stainless steel cookware looking anything but shiny? Well, if you are not already familiar with Bar Keeper’s Friend, you will soon make it your best friend.
Bar Keeper’s Friend is a non-abrasive cleanser for your stainless steel products. This is not just your cookware. You can also use it on your stainless steel fridge, sink, outdoor grill and even your ceramic cooktops. There are other uses for it too listed on the can.
The way I use this product is to first use my dish soap and sponge to clean out the cookware. Then, I put some of the cleanser on the pan or sponge, add a little water and return the pan to its bright state. You can use this product on the inside and outside of the cookware. Bar Keeper’s comes in a liquid and powder cleanser format. My preference is powdered so I can control how much “grit” there is to help me clean the pan. Just personal preference, of course.
And finding this product is easy! My local grocery, Target, big box hardware and specialty cooking stores all carry the brand. The cost for the cans is under $6 and can usually be found for a great price. I just bought a 21 ounce can for $1.70!
Plus, the brand is recommended by All-Clad Metalcrafters and Kohler for their products.

I’ve heard of Bar Keeper’s Friend, but I haven’t tried it yet. I’d love to get all of my stainless steel cookware looking new again!
Awesome product. Works great on anything stainless steel — fridges, sinks, grills and of course cookware. Thanks for your message.
Wow! I have some cookie sheets that could use that. I heard good things about that product but it’s nice to actually see what it does. I need to get some.
Bar Keepers Friend has been an absolute lifesaver in our household!
I make a lot of my own cleaners for the kitchen. But when i run out & don’t have time to make a new batch, I always use Bar Keeper’s Friend!
Wow! This is a must buy. A great price and it does a great job! Thanks for the info.
I’ll have to try this for sure!
I have seen Bar Keepers Friend but never actually used it. Guess I will have to try it now. Thanks for sharing. It did a fantastic job.
I might have to check that out. I tend to use these stainless steel wipes and I like those pretty well.
This is the first time I have heard of this product! Looks like it is worth having on hand!
I’ve never heard of this product so I’m making a not of it. I have a few pans that could benefit from a deep scrub to get the old baked on grime off. 🙂
This is good to know! I may need to use this since everyone tends to flock to my stainless steel pots!
