In 1882, an Indianapolis chemist noticed how clean and shiny his tarnished pot was after cooking rhubarb. Using an active ingredient that’s found in the plant he formulated a talcum-smooth cleanser and sold it to the city’s taverns. So pleased were his customers with how well it worked on bar fixtures, the product was dubbed the “Bar Keepers Friend”

BKF Cookware Cleanser was specifically created to remove tenacious cooked-on, baked-on residues from both metal and glass cookware.  It is the best option for keeping your pots and pans looking like new.  After all, a good pot or pan is built to last a lifetime.  BKF Cookware is a must for those who hang their pots and pans in the kitchen.  Its ability to remove tarnish from stainless steel is unsurpassed. BKF Cookware Cleanser contains 50% more surfactants than our classic BKF Cleanser & Polish.  This allows you to remove food-based residues and metal tarnish from your cookware using less elbow grease, and the added surfactant makes rinsing faster.

Where to use your Bar Keepers Friend Cookware Cleanser & Polish 

Bar Keepers Friend Cookware Cleanser & Polish works on most surfaces used for cooking.

In the Kitchen:

  • Stainless Steel pots and pans
  • Glass casserole dishes
  • Baking sheets
  • Oven door interior (don’t apply anywhere you can’t rinse well)



  • Stainless steel grills
  • Grill tools
  • Camping cookware


Where NOT to use BKF

  • Gold or Silver (Sterling silver is OK)
  • Polished stone, such as marble or granite. (There is a granite & stone cleanser polish specifically for this now!)
  • Lacquered, painted, or mirrored surfaces.


A Word of Caution about BKF

Because our Cookware Cleanser & Polish is acidic and contains polishing compounds, BKF may etch or dull delicate surfaces. Before applying to fibreglass, plastics, anodized aluminium or brushed metal surfaces, such as appliance exteriors, test in a small, hidden area first.  Do not use on non-stick cookware.

BKF Cookware Cleanser & Polish

The active ingredient in Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser & Polish is Oxalic Acid.
