Ideal for Stainless Steel
on December 22, 2013
The other reviews posted have given the scoop about how well this little bit of chain mail works on cast iron. And they're right, it's the bomb for cast iron. But wait, there's more!
I have quite a bit of carbon steel and clad stainless steel pots and pans in addition to my big cast iron skillet. In fact, almost all of my cookware is some form of steel. The Ringer XL works like a charm on them, too. This morning I cooked breakfast sausage patties in my 10" Calphalon Tri-Ply frypan. The Ringer scrubbed it clean in a flash, with no "elbow grease" required. I used it last week on my 8 quart soup pot to remove burnt chili. A quick soak did half the work, then I used the Ringer just as I would use a sponge, with a little dish soap, and the pan was sparkling clean. Once again, no effort was needed. Who doesn't like easy?
Not only does this product do exactly what it says it will, it's made right here in the USA by a very nice man who sent me a lovely note of thanks for my purchase. And it's musical, too! Every time I use, it makes happy chiming, sliding, shimmery sounds. Buy it and experience the joy for yourself.
UPDATE 1/20/14- Tonight I baked shells and cheese in a glass baking dish. Some of the cheese was stuck on the outside of the pan, and stayed on after soaking. My nylon brush didn't get it all, and a sponge was useless. Enter the Ringer XL! I figured it was on the outside, so a few scratches would be no big deal. Cutting to the chase, the Ringer took it right off and didn't scratch the glass at all. That's one more kitchen item this little scrubber cleans. Seriously, I like the Ringer more and more every day. It has made doing the dishes much, much easier, and it's so much more sanitary than any other scrubber. Someone (are you listening, Mr. Developer?) needs to make one out of a material that's safe to use on dishes and other scratch-prone items.
