Any idea how to clean the outside of the cookware without scratching

any idea how to clean the outside of the cookware without scratching it up?? I have a customer that wants to know, and I'm sure there are others I could tell this to.

Cleaning Cookware

Try Dawn Power Dissolver. Someone here suggested it for the glazed stoneware, too. It works well, just don't wet the area first. Let it sit for 10 to 30 minutes, then wet and wipe down. If the stains are a couple years old, it may take several tries. :rolleyes:

You can find it near dish detergents at most supermarkets.

Here is something I found that I thought you would find interesting. It was on another board posting.
Thank you for contacting the Pampered Chef Test Kitchens with your product
question. To remove staining from the exterior of the Professional Cookware
a grease cutting detergent (like Dawn) and your Easy Clean Kitchen Brush
might be all you need. If this has not been successful, deep cleaning may be
Deep Cleaning
* To remove stubborn spots, first soak in hot, soapy water. Rub exterior and
interior surfaces with a nonabrasive sponge or cloth.
* Prepare a baking soda paste by mixing 1/2 cup baking soda with 3
tablespoons water. Apply paste to desired areas on exterior surface of
Cookware, let stand 15-20 minutes. Wipe off excess paste; rinse thoroughly
and dry.
* To remove residue from rivets, clean with the Easy Clean Kitchen Brush or
other nylon bristle brush.
* To maintain clean and shiny lids, clean with a cloth dampened withvinegar
or lemon juice periodically.
Directions for deep cleaning the exterior surface of the Professional
Cookware can also be found in the Use & Care/Recipe Cards provided with each

Thank you for contacting the Pampered Chef Customer Service Department. To
remove stubborn stains from the exterior porcelain enamel surface,
rub the surface using a non-abrasive pad that has been dipped in a solution
of equal parts of ammonia and water. Do not allow pans to soak in the
solution. Wash, rinse, and dry before using. If further assistance is
necessary, please contact our Test Kitchen Department at 630/ 261-4059.
