    Default Hello

    YOu can look around at the local stores or any cleaning supplier. You can buy a Stainless Steal Polish/Cleaner that comes in a can and sprays on the surface. You let it soak and then wipe off. If you keep the steal clean enough it should work fine. I have used in grocery stores and two of the pizza places I worked at. Each time the steal was nice and shinny.
    Thanks

    Sorry George steel wool and comet will not work. Comet might work with a sponge. But if you try the wool and comet and it works let us know.

    For the name of the brand I can't remember. We just got from the contractor that did all the night cleaning.
    Thanks

    To clean our stainless steel kitchen island and our staainless steel sinks, kitchen appliences, etc., we use something called "stainless steel magic". Works great. Not sure who makes it, but we bought it at a restaurant supply store. If you do an internet search, you're more than likely to find it.

    GW,

    yeah i knew it was a joke..I was going with it.. Sorry..

    I personally think what one needs to do is have two sets of the stainless steal. Place it on the appratus with quick snaps. Keep one all shinnya nd clean for parades etc. Then swithc it back to the everyday work steal.
    Thanks

    Default QUestions....

    MacInnis,
    Few questions just for curiousity:
    1. Is it highly polished? (looks like chrome)
    2. Any protective coating (wouldn't think so due to the fact that it is indeed stainless, but, some lower grades of stainless will surface rust in situations)
    3. Treadplate, correct?

    Just curious.
