Sounds like the residue left over after Chlorine is used to remove Sulfur from water on a large scale?
Go to the water container behind your toilet and lift the lid! Is there a stain that's real dark in color or a film on the top of the water?
If yes, then email me sweetness!

Then if it's a Cast Iron Email me, TOO!

I never put my frying pans in the dishwasher for that very same reason..I always hand wash.

Oo-er. What other material is the handle made of? You could ask the manufacturer - they might send you a new one!!

Well, you could consider it! A new one won't cost the earth and you can make sure you get an aluminium-free one. ;o)

Well OK, I have thrown them away (only had them 20+ years) and bought new. I would still like to know what it was, though.
