I've got a sort of 'reverse' type of discoloration on a Calphalon ss fry pan. 1st time I used it to saute steaks, it developed a lovely (really!) sort of amber gold finish, everywhere EXCEPT where the steaks and oil touched. Including the entire exterior.
I've used it since, of course, because it's not got any burned bits or gunk anywhere, just this weird color. I'd like to make it look like my other pans if I can. any ideas?
