great for pots and pans, but for the items you mentioned PBW can't be beat, from my experience.

The only brew-related task where barkeepers friend excels is cleaning up the outside of used kegs, imho.

If you've got a lot of stainless brew-ware, BKF can be your best friend. I use it for cleaning my keggles, brew kettle, and conical fermenter. It's also great for removing heat discoloration in the area surrounding a stainless weld.
