I have a new Ruffoni sauce pan, not the hammered metal style. I did not get it brand new from WS however I believe it is new and never used. It was pretty tarnished and I've been letting it sit in ketchup which is removing the tarnish. Would lacquer be on the inside? I couldn't find an answer to my questions anywhere though, including their website. I'm afraid to use it until I know. Thanks!
