Lately, as I boil water in a steel pot, it is making the pots very dark brown, and the inner surface of the pots seems to have changed to feeling rough and scrubby.
Can anyone help with this?
Also, as I was doing slow cooking in the pot, strangely, the bottom thick layer came off! I am baffled! My pots look awful.
If this is what is happening to pots, how is this water for drinking? I live in northwest Indiana. I have lived here for twenty years and this hasn't happened before. I had also boiled water from brita in these small pots first, and as it reduced. Seems tap and brita water are doing the same thing to the pot. I want to know what is causing this?
