BarKeepers Friend Cookware Cleanser & Polish is a product designed to clean up cookware stains, such as on stainless steel or copper, that occur because of excessive heat, or burned or baked on grease or food.
The product can also be used for baked on grease on glass bakeware and casserole dishes.
Basically, this is the kind of product used to clean up pots and pans, bakeware, and cookware, to make it look cleaner again after its had a lot of use.
What follows are some before and after pictures of this product in action, sharing how this cleansing powder worked for them.
Before we begin though, you might be wondering what the difference is between this variety of Bar Keepers Friend is, for cookware, and the original powder?
How The Cookware Cleanser & Polish Is Different Than Original BKF
This product is a variety of the very popular Bar Keepers Friend line of products, affectionately known as BKF for those who really use them all the time.
The cookware cleanser is very similar to the original BKF, but it is, according to BKF's website, "Specially formulated to remove tough grease, rust stains, lime buildup, and mineral deposits," and therefore contains "50% more grease-cutting detergents than our classic cleaners."
Therefore, basically, the cookware version has a lot more degreasers included, because that's something really necessary when cleaning stubborn baked on grease and grime from pots and pans.
A. Young shared before and after pictures of a pot that she had stained with burned on popcorn grease.
She had dried both Dawn dish soap and Comet, and neither of these products could get rid of the baked on grease, but using this product worked.
She had to scrub for about five minutes with the product. She explained that even afterward "There are still extremely miniscule spots of black, but overall you can see how much shinier and cleaner this is after one use."
Further, along with this Bar Keepers Friend Cookware Cleaner, and the original Bar Keepers Friend cleanser mentioned above, there's also a BKF liquid cleanser version, and I've got reviews of it as well.
