Default Cleaning a Plated Skillet

I have read the info re: cleaning plated pieces. Since electrolysis is discouraged, what should use to get the rust off the cooking surface? vinegar bath? Should I risk a little time in the etank?

I was given the piece, so that cost is not a factor. Even so, I'd like to get it looking as good as I can.

Default Re: Cleaning a Plated Skillet

If it were mine I would start by putting it in the lye tank and not be in any hurry to take it out. After a long soaking I would use a fine steel wool to see what all comes off and then assess whether it needed additional attention. Could be that most everything will clean up and little more treating could be limited to a vinegar and water solution used just on the inside of the pan.
