I just bought a new cheap pot. Put some water in it, boiled it and noticed the pot up to its water level turned dark. I was thinking maybe the metal coating was peeling off and leaking into the water.
Boiled a second pot of water then poured it into a glass and the water looks clear as you can see in picture.
What happened to the pot and if I continue cooking with it will the water become contaminated? The upper part of the pot is still clear silver if the water level goes higher might it cause something to leech in?
Not using the pot now but hope I can.
