I discolored a stainless steel pot lid. What can I do about it?

So, I am an idiot who left the stove on, heating up an empty cast-iron pan and the stainless steel lid that was on it.
It was really hot for a pretty long time.
Now the underside of the lid is discolored a burnt coppery color, and all the Barkeeper's Friend in the world isn't doing the job of getting this nice lid back to silver.
What else can I try?
