Heat tint from burner on copper pan

coppernew101 | May 30, 202010:10 AM     16

Just started cooking with copper. Got a 34cm, 3mm, tin lined hammered two handle pan from Bottega del Rame. Made pancakes and sauted some onions. I have 2 concerns. First is I have burner heat tint marks on the bottom, that did not budge after washing with lemon and salt. Same is happening to my Falk try me size saucier. Is there anything that can be done to remove this and to stop it from happening in the future? Have read about Flitz on anothe discussion. Will that help?
Also I had the heat a bit higher should have by accident and there is some change in the tin which seems to be just a discoloration, I cannot feel any change in texture. If some can take a look and let me know if this is melting tin, that will be great.

Thank you for helping out a copper newbie
