SOURCE: scratched stainless steel

First, I would not use ordinary steel wool. Small microscopic iron particles get embedded in the stainless steel surface and could lead to rust. There is stainless steel wool, but I have experience using sand paper, so I'll tell you about that.

When changing a faucet, thinking it wouldn't harm a stainless steel sink, I used a kitchen knife to scrape that crusty residue left from hard water. I had put in several noticeable shallow scrapes on the top part of my sink where everyone could see it.

I used a series of silicon carbide, wet/dry automotive sanding paper to hide my blunder. First 400 grit, then 600 grit, then 800, then 1000. The 1000 grit was actually to "polished" looking so I went back and finished with 800 grit, blending the refinished area out to the rest of the sink top surface. I sanded in the direction of the surface graining.

For your backsplash, the type of finish will determine what grit you'll finish with. If is it polished to a high lustre, then you'll have to go to finer grits. If it is polished to a mirror finish, then you'll have to eventually finish with a polishing compound.

While working on my sink, I had gravity to help me put weight behind my work (so to speak), but on your backsplash you'll have to awkwardly push sideways to work the sand paper, plus you may have cabinets in the way and a hood to clunk your head into. Depending on how much trouble it would be, you may find it easier to remove the backsplash.

I you are not familiar with finishing metal, you could practice on a piece of sheet metal first, getting used to how much pressure to apply, and sanding in straight strokes so you can match the backsplash's surface graining. If your backsplash has a mirror finish, you could try a polishing disk on a drill or a dremel tool first.

SOURCE: How to clean the stainless steel stove top

Someone else suggested Easy Off Oven Cleaner (I used fume free). I just finished using the Easy Off (make sure you cover the electronic ignition) with Q-Tips and my top looks almost as clean as when I first got it.

SOURCE: Stainless Steel Range Tops.

The only way to clean it is with steel wool. I use 2 different grades, but finish with a fine grit-0000. You still can't get it completely clean, no matter what you do. Forget it looking new. It's not real stainless steel if it's model FEF455BBA. I won't EVER buy this sort of top again either. I have had numerous problems with it, including since it conducts heat and doesn't shield wiring from the heat generated by the eyes, it is constantly melting out the plug-in elements for the eyes. I am surprised it hasn't been recalled. I am surprised more people haven't had fires!

Use extra virgin olive oil to clean and shine stainless steel. Apply with lint free cloth and rub into stainless steel following the grain of the steel. Then with dry portion of cloth buff like you would car polish and you will be amazed at the shine. It also provides some protection due to the fact it is a oil.

DO NOT use anything but a dedicated stainless steel cleaner. Some types of Windex have ammonia as one of the ingredients and you can imagine what that will do to your stainless steel finish.

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.
