So, my cheapy copper pan has been a bit abused (happy to be learning on it before tearing into Bourgeat purchase). There seems to be rust under the handle on the lid and also on the handle on the body of the pot. I can only presume that this is not good and it seems to be making the copper fairly unhappy as well. I have no idea how to get under there though. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'll add that I'm concurrently researching kitchen towels since mine really just move water around. I should really find something that actually absorbs to prevent this in the future.
