Please give me everything you know about keeping it clean!

I have a new range cooker and it's giving me a nightmare !

Clean spills straight away, and polish with oil and then a microfibre cloth.

Thanks the snork. Any particular oil?

I use baby oil on kitchen towel on our steel splashback.

thank you! I've tried staibless steel cleaner but can't get it streak free. Will give baby oil a go!

WD40 is good too!

SpeckledyBanana Sun 13-Nov-16 20:39:59

Random, does WD40 leave a smell?

RandomMess Sun 13-Nov-16 20:50:52

A bit I guess but DH loves it...

Those magic erasers are good for the cleaning part too, gave it a go and worked really well.

Wondered, as baby oil does. It doesn't last long though.

Magic erasers are brilliant at everything. Never thought to try them on ss though, might try that.

I like the Method Stainless Steel Cleaner on our oven.

Doesn't streak and smells lovely.

I've been scrubbing like mad at it with a microfibre cleaning cloth for Windows and that's helped but it's still not streak free!

will be heading for baby oil in the am.

When I worked in a kitchen many moons ago we always used ajax powder on the steel but it doesn't seem to be around anymore!

Have you tried barkeeper friend? I haven't but it's amazing on my induction hob.

The magic eraser was amazing though - just from the £1 shop!

Nope <adds to shopping list>

Wellco do a lovely cleaner that i use to clean my cooker and it always leaves my cooker sparkling!

I can second Bar Keepers Friend, possibly just Ajax in more expensive packaging. I do think that some of the problems maybe down to the quality/finish of the stainless steel. My hob is eleven years old and still looks like new, most it needs is a quick finish with a tea towel after wiping, but my sister's hob looked grim after a few months. I am not especially houseproud so don't spend ages cleaning the thing either.
