I'm new to using stainless cookware, I received a nice set for a gift. I used a nylon/plastic flipper and it left "skid marks" on my new skillet.....had to scrub and scrub get it off. I thought I was doing right by using something other than metal. I'm not going to baby the set, since it was an inexpensive Cuisinart set from SAMs club, but I don't want to melt all my utensils and or eat plastic with my food. I was using a med heat on a gas range. Was it too hot or are my tools cheap? LOL can you use an abrasive cleaner on SS?
