Stainless Steel Exterior Cleaning Tips

Stainless steel has unique cleaning characteristics. In order to keep the appliance looking like new, GE Appliances recommends cleaning it with a cleaner designed for use on stainless steel, such as Cerama Bryte Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner (PM10X311) or Citrushine Stainless Steel Wipes (WX10X10007). Cerama Bryte Stainless Steel Appliance Cleaner is available locally or through GE Appliance Parts. Purchase a GE Appliance part or accessory online.

Other products available: Revereware Copper and Stainless Steel cleaner, Wenol Cream (Made in England) and Kitchen Magic. All should be available at most hardware stores and grocery stores.

Other products to use: Soap and water, a thick paste of baking soda and water, or any non-detergent based cleaner.

General directions: Wash, rinse, and polish with a dry cloth.

For heavy soils: Use a paste of baking soda and water while rubbing with a soft cloth.

Do not use steel wool, abrasives, ammonia, acids or commercial oven cleaners. They may damage the surface. These cleaning tips do not pertain to CleanSteel models.
