used to be my favorite thing. now the ring around the central stainless base (if you look closely you see it's not one piece) has rust spots on it. The opening with the lid makes it incredibly difficult to fit your hand in with some steel wool to scrub the stains off. i already tried for about 2 mins. i dont know if i have the patience. it's really uncomfortable and awkward to stick your hand inside to scrub properly. "stainless" ... smh. i add photo later since many people show shiny photo.
