Cleaning stainless steel appliances can be a bit tricky and not every stainless steel appliance is created equal. Your first and most important step is to go to your owner’s manual and follow the instructions carefully for cleaning stainless steel. And if you want more information, give the team at Friedman’s a call and they can help. There is nothing like a clean kitchen dressed in sparkly appliances.

To clean and care for your stainless steel surfaces, follow these suggestions:

  1. Wash surfaces with warm, soapy water using liquid detergent or an all-purpose cleaner and a nonabrasive sponge. Always rub evenly in the direction of the grain.
  2. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
  3. To restore its luster, use the wipes; follow the recommendations and directions on the label. Wipe off any excess and use special care to avoid contact with any plastic parts, trim pieces or rubber door gaskets. If the polish does contact any of these plastic parts, clean them with a nonabrasive sponge and mild detergent in warm water. Thoroughly dry the area with a soft cloth.
  4. Use a clean, dry towel to polish the surface in the direction of the grain until it shines.

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the finish, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive or harsh cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths or certain paper towels.
