Q: I borrowed a Bialetti stovetop espresso maker from my neighbor to try it out before I bought one, and (not my brightest move) put it in the dishwasher. When it came out the shiny finish was gone and it’s now a dull gray.

I don’t want to return it to my neighbor like this — does anyone know of a way I can get the shine back?
