Cleaning & Polishing Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances are very popular in homes today where years ago, they were only found in commercial and industrial kitchens.

Stainless steel appliances are sleek and beautiful; they are hardly ever stain-less.

If you have stainless steel appliances, you already know the pros and cons and you may equally know the frustration with keeping them clean and fingerprint free.

General Cleaning

Wet a lint free cloth with warm water and wring it out so it’s just damp, then wipe down the appliances. Dry and polish with a dry lint-free cloth.

You can also use plain white vinegar to wipe down your appliances. Just apply some to your clean lint free cloth, clean and dry.

Cleaning Burnt or Caked on Food

Here’s a quick tip for getting caked on, burnt on food off the stovetop:

Dab a little liquid dishwasher detergent on the spot and let it sit for a few minutes to soften the burnt on or caked on foodstuff.

Use a nylon scouring pad to gently rub and get the spot off. Repeat with the dishwashing detergent if necessary.

When the food has come off, rinse the area with water and dry.

Polishing Stainless Steel

When you’ve finished cleaning your stainless steel and you want an extra pop of shine, here’s the trick:

Mineral Oil

Apply mineral oil to a clean, dry, lint-free cleaning cloth and buff it in to the stainless steel for a great look.

Don’t overdo the oil though; you only need a thin layer to make it shine.
