I just received a 1.9 qt Mauviel copper saucepan for xmas. It is my first foray into copper cookware. It looks beautiful, I love the weight, etc. However, on the outside, opposite the side with the handle, there are several spots in the copper. They almost look like burn marks from the manufacturing process.
Before I attempt to clean this, or return it for an exchange, I would love some help from the chowhounders on what these spots may be and my best course of action.
Pic attached. I can add more if needed.
