What do you use? I want (need) to keep all my pots and pans clean but it's really difficult. I don't know what I should be using. All of them is getting to a point where I think I should just toss them and get brand new set.

Please tell me what have work for you.

I bought these little things that are about the size of a sponge, but they have stiff netting on them with a metallic thread going through that. They clean the stainless pots and pans and the outside of all my pans really well.
The only thing I DON'T like about them is that metallic thread. I always microwave my sponges (according to CDC advise) but am afraid to put these in the mike.

Mine are stainless steel also and after years of use they still look like new and they were a cheap set not expensive. Use a Sos pad on the bottoms or salt and lemon juice with steal wool they will sparkle. I try to keep up with mine when I have a boil over. (doesn't always happen tho.)

I use Bar Keepers Friend. It takes out the stains without scratching.

I found the most wonderful stuff...it is called Dawn Power Dissolver. I found it at Walmart with the dish liquid. It is a gel in a spray bottle. I have porceline grates on my stove..and the stuff gets hard there..I just take the grates off..put them on newspaper and squirt the get on them. I let them sit for a few hours. Then I scrub them with a nylon scrubber. You can use this stuff on the pots and pans also. The hard baked on grim comes off a lot easier. After I use in on my pans, they have copper on the bottom...I take a half of a lemon and put salt on it to finish them off. You can even spray this stuff on the stove top to clean around the burners. I clean the stove top with barbasol shaving cream..just wipe it on..ket it sit for a few minutes and wipe clean.

Baking soda and water, stainless steel cleaner from Princess House (don't know if they still have it) or- spray it with oven cleaner and let it sit.

I have a SS teapot and when I do the countertops of the stive I spray it with oven cleaner and let it sit in the sink. Sparkles.
