Cleaning VERY oxidized aluminum exterior?

Eiron | Apr 20, 2013 10:39 AM

I couldn't resist.

I found an older All-Clad LTD (2qt?) saucepan at the thrift store.

The interior is in great shape, but the exterior is very oxidized from years of cleanings in an automatic dishwasher.

Before I break out the two tins of polishing paste & elbow grease, are there any tips and/or tricks to removing the oxidation easily?
