How "trashed" is your copper?

I get a lot of questions on the care and cleaning of copper. At times I get email from people that get terrified that they have ruined theirs and are in a panic. Because of that I am planning on shooting a video to help educate the public. In preparation for the video, I gave my 18 year old daughter privileges over a 28cm copper fry pan fully expecting her to be more abusive than any other human who has ever stepped foot in a kitchen. So far she is not failing to disappoint me.

In the process, I got curious about the copperheads in this group. Do you have copperware that is a bit abused? Heat discolored? What are your regular habits with cleaning and care?

For me, I actually enjoy the clean-up ritual of my personal copperware. Nearly any other cooking implement that I have will end up in the dishwasher (even stuff that shouldn't) but the copper gets a nice massage with BKF and then hand dried.

I would love to hear your experiences and how you care for yours.
