"Stainless Steel Flat Stove Top Damage (HELP!)"



2005

I've had my stainless steel stove for 2 yrs. I've noticed now a damage on the large eye were my pots have scratched and left a dicoloration. Is there a product I can purchase to repair the discoloration from years of using pots.

It is hard to give you complete answers without seeing the problem. Is the discoloration caused by steel pots rubbing on the surface? You may have some iron contamination and rusting. You can buy rust removers at the hardware store in trigger sprayer bottles. If the discolorations are from the heat of the stove they may not come off easily.

If the scratches are considerable and offensive, the only thing you can do is re-buff the surface with a NON-IRON CONTAINING abrasive or Scotchbrite type material. If you do this carefully and rubbing only in the direction of the "grain" on the surface of the steel you can make it look pretty good. If the surface is high gloss finish the only way to re-establish the shiny look is to have it electropolished in a shop that does this.
