Bleach is a poison when ingested and it is, therefore, strongly advisable not to use it to clean utensils that come into contact with food.
As with any chlorinated product, bleach can damage stainless steel through a reaction known as "pitting corrosion": in the event of contact, small holes will rapidly form that will make your utensil unusable.
Any chlorinated cleaning products, including bleach, should never be used to care for your stainless utensils.
Table salt or sodium chloride contains very small amounts of chlorine.
Undissolved salt left in the bottom of your stainless saucepan can lead to the appearance of indelible marks.
These marks pose no health risks and will not hinder your use of your cookware, thanks to the thickness of stainless steel used in the manufacture of CRISTEL® products.
Always put salt in boiling water and stir until it dissolves completely.
