How to Clean KitchenAid Copper Cookware

True copper will change color at times, even when it is not being used. There are many solutions for cleaning copper.

Commercial Copper Cleaner

If there are discoloration areas (common when the heat is applied to copper), simply clean them away with a copper cleaner. Follow the manufacturer's directions for application. After cleaning, ensure the pot is washed in hot, soapy water and buffed with a soft cloth. 

Homemade Cleaners

There are a couple of methods for cleaning your copper pots with ingredients found around the home. 

  • Cut a lemon in half, cover it with salt, and rub it along the surface. 
  • Combining equal parts of salt, white vinegar, and flour. Apply the paste in a rubbing motion. 
  • After using either method of cleaning, wash the pot in hot, soapy water and bluff with a soft cloth.
