Stainless and Spotless Steel
Stainless steel gets scratches all the time. Doesn’t mean that the appliance is nasty or old, it just means that it has been used. Of course the best to keep scratches off of stainless steel is to make sure that it that scratches don’t get on it.
The best way to clean stainless steel is to wipe it down with a mild soap and hot water. Also clean with the grain of the steel. When the water is drying off of the stainless steel, it will not leave water spots if it was cleaned and wiped off in the same direction as the grain of the steel.
