I've been reading recently about "damaging" stainless steel pots and pants by scrubbing them too hard with things like steel wool etc..
I was wondering what damaging means in this case and what are the implications?
If I have a copper or aluminum core is their a chance that I could expose this inner metal, leading to problems? Is there anyway to scrape away that much stainless steel?
Does it simply cause the steel to be a poorer conductor of heat?
