GE Appliance - Premium Finish Cleaning Tips
We recommend that the interior and exterior Premium Finish surfaces on appliances be treated similar to high-end coatings on automobiles. These finishes are not engineered for use with soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach or abrasive cloths and paper towels. Use of these types of products may scratch and/or dull the finish.
In order to avoid scratching or damaging Premium Finish surfaces, they should be cleaned with a soft, clean cloth or microfiber cloth, warm water and a mild soap or detergent solution. The appliance finish surface should then be wiped dry with a soft, clean cloth or microfiber towel to avoid streaking or water spotting.
Black Stainless, Black Slate & Slate
Keep in mind these finishes are not engineered for use with soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach or abrasive cloths and paper towels. Use of these types of products may scratch and/or dull the finish. Do not use cleaners intended specifically for stainless steel on Black Stainless. Cerama Bryte™ Appliance Cleaner (WX10X392) can be used. NOTE: Other Cerama Bryte™ products should not be used, only Cerama Bryte™ Appliance Cleaner is approved.
In order to care for Stainless Steel, we additionally recommend regularly using an oil based polish to keep this exterior finish bright and glossy. Using a soft polishing cloth while wiping with the grain will help keep your Stainless Steel appliances shiny. You can also check out our GE Appliance - How to Clean Stainless Steel article.
