Not having remembered to pull my head out of my [bleep!] this morning, I cooked poached eggs in my little six-well DeMeyere pot without first filling the pot with water! Compounding this, I set the hot pot on my butcher block table and burned a ring in it. The pot now has a golden sheen; the heavy metal bisquit on the bottom is mottled, and I am beside myself! Any advice to save this pot will be greatly appreciated. TIA.
