Remember that any undissolved salt can pit the steel surface. It is best to only add salt into the water after it has reached a boiling point.
If food becomes stuck to a pan or pot, fill it with soapy hot water and let it stand. Once the water temperature lowers, use a soft cleaning cloth or sponge to remove the food. Never use steel wool or harsh scourers as it may scratch the steel surface. To keep the stainless steel surface looking as new, use a stainless steel polish cleaner.
