So, not one to bring up problems without offering solutions, here are two ways I’ve found to make peace with my kitchen appliances. First, I use Weiman’s Stainless Steal Cleaner and Polish religiously. (They sell it at the Teeter.) It does a great job of getting the grime off without leaving streaks. The product also claims to create a barrier to prevent smuding/fingerprinting, but I’ll let you be the judge on that one.
Second, I found some fun stainless steel “magnets” made by Mayfair Lane. They have a re-usable adhesive backing that doesn’t leave any residue, and they stick to magnetic and non-magnetic surfaces alike. I also have a memo board from the same company that allows me to keep my grocery list conveniently located on the fridge.
Now, if only I could find the perfect glass cook-top cleaner and scratch remover. Any suggestions?
