BKF Cookware Cleanser was specifically created to remove tenacious cooked-on, baked-on residues from both metal and glass cookware. It is the best option for keeping your pots and pans looking like new. After all, a good pot or pan is built to last a lifetime. BKF Cookware is a must for those who hang their pots and pans in the kitchen. Its ability to remove tarnish from stainless steel is unsurpassed. BKF Cookware Cleanser contains 50% more surfactants than our classic BKF Cleanser & Polish. This allows you to remove food-based residues and metal tarnish from your cookware using less elbow grease; and the added surfactant makes rinsing faster.

A Word of Caution about BKF

Because our Cookware Cleanser & Polish is acidic and contains polishing compounds, BKF may etch or dull delicate surfaces. Before applying to fiberglass, plastics, anodized aluminum or brushed metal surfaces, such as appliance exteriors, test in a small, hidden area first. Do not use on non-stick cookware.
