Is there a stainless steel or cast iron replacement sink for Americast 7172?


I recommend an Elkay stainless steel sink. The drain is not offset the way the Americast drain is, but that shouldn't be a problem. Celebrity is the name of their basic line but it is not a cheapo sink. It comes in depths of 7", 10", and 12". The 10" and 12" deep ones are special order. They also have the Pacemaker, and the Lustertone, which is their top line sink.
I don't care for cast iron sinks as they sometimes bleed rust through the caulk, get scratched, and quickly lose ther gloss.

I have a stainless steel sink in my RV. When it was stored for the winter, I used FRI-Z-AIR containers to absorb moisture. Some of the crystals spilled into the sink and actually etched spots into the sink...


I would try SOS pads or even fine sandpaper if necessary. Make sure you go with the "grain" so it isn't obvious afterward. It is possible to blend with those grain lines in stainless steel, we used to do it in a factory.

How to remove scratches from stainless steel appliances


Try this at your own risk. Step 1 Consider using a product made for stainless steel2_bing.gif such as Scratch-B-Gone or Bar Keepers Friend (see Tips).
  • Step 2 Or, try spraying an all-purpose cleaner (such as Formula 4092_bing.gif) on the scratches.
  • Step 3 Use a non-metal scouring pad (such as Scotch-Brite pads) to rub the cleaner in, always rubbing in the direction of the grain.
  • Step 4 Keep the stainless steel wet with the cleaner as you work, and rinse the pad often.
  • Step 5 Rinse the surface and wipe dry.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
    Tips & Warnings
    • Before using any treatment on your stainless cookware, sink or appliances, it is wise to call the manufacturer for advice.
    • A new product called Scratch-B-Gone is touted as the "first aid kit for stainless steel." You can find it at many home improvement stores.
    • Bar Keepers Friend is another product for stainless steel. It can be found in most grocery or home improvement stores, or at www.barkeepersfriend.com.
    • To keep stainless steel sinks from scratching, put a rubber mat in the bottom of the sink to protect it.
    • Avoid using abrasive

    The "stainless" steel is all rusted, streaked and stained. I have tried many products to clean it, but it remains unsightly and stained.


    Use DeBruce Polish, we use DeBruce Polish on all of our stainless steel. DeBruce Polish will remove the rust and pacify the surface. DeBruce Polish also works on glass cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.

    Hi
    The stain is probably 'etched' into the surface of the steel-- Only way is to take off the damaged layer-- A VERY fine cutting paste should do it - and as long as its very fine- you should still have the same shine!!

    How to clean stainless steel


    You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
    Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

    stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
    Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
    2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
    For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
    3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
    Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
    4. stainless steel Cleaner.
    If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

    If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
    Good Luck...........The Fang.

    Chemical stains on the stainless steel fridge


    If the damage is shallow, you can scrub off the top layer with Bar Keeper's Friend and damp sponge. (Don't worry - it only takes off a micro-layer). Rinse and dry. If the damage is gone, wipe with mineral oil. If it's still there, I would try a few more times before giving up.

    Good luck!

    SCRATCHED STAINLESS STEEL SINK


    Have you tried a really fine steel wool? I don't know if this would work. I have stainless steel farmhouse sink, front exposed all stainless steel. My contractor scratched it up horribly when he was putting it into the kichen. he fixed it amazingly with a fine steel wool pad. I don't know if your scratch is too deep for that but it couldn't hurt. The scratches on our sink were surface but very noticeable. Hope this helps.
