Copper Care

Copper pots and pans rarely require special attention, but sometimes a work-a-day pot longs to shine.

| September/October 2008

  • A simple combination of salt and lemon juice scours copper pots clean.

Bright and Shiny Copper Cleaner

This technique also removes cooked-on food residue without the use of toxic chemicals.

•1 cup kosher salt
•1 lemon, halved

1Pour salt into an open dish. Dip the cut side of the lemon directly into the salt to develop a nice crust, about 1⁄8-inch-thick.



Scrub the copper surface with the salted end of the lemon in a circular motion. Re-dip the lemon half to add abrasive salt as needed. Squeeze the lemon a little when the surface gets dry. 

Rinse well, then wash and dry.
