How to Clean Club Hammercraft Aluminum

Club Hammercraft aluminum cookware is a vintage line of pots and pans originally produced in the 1930s through the 1950s. As with other types of aluminum cookware, it is prized for its ability to resist corrosion and evenly distribute heat to the food. Improperly cleaning your Club Hammercraft aluminum pots and pans eventually leads to scratches and pitting that render the cookware useless. Wash your Club Hammercraft pieces with the correct materials and products to prevent unwanted damage.

Step 1

Rinse the aluminum cookware under warm tap water. Gently scrub the piece with a nylon brush to remove any burned on food particles.

Step 2

Fill the Club Hammercraft aluminum pot halfway with warm water. Bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat.

Step 3

Add two tablespoons cream of tartar to the boiling water. Stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon and allow the liquid to boil for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the Club Hammercraft aluminum cookware from the heat and pour the hot water down the drain. Allow the cookware to cool completely before wiping it down with a soapy rag. Rinse the cookware under cool tap water and dry it completely with a soft cloth before storing.
