Tips: Polish your stainless steel with Evoo

I had been advised by a dear executive Pastry Chef friend to polish my stainless Steel Antique Credenza with Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

I was quite surprised when he had told me this. However, I went ahead to do so ..

Then wiped it with paper towelling and buffed it with a Micro Fiber cloth.

It has had amazing results.

So, throw away your comercial polishes ..

Does has anyone else tried this with their stainless steel cutlery or other ítems made of this metal ?


Have a nice day ..

Life is too short to polish my stainless steel, sorry

But I don't have SS appliances

And I'm not certain if they recognize organic versus nonorganic oil

Credenza? You have a Stainless Steel credenza? My Mom had a mahogany credenza that was part of her dining room suite. It's the sideboard where we stored the table linens and good silverware, along with other things. I have no idea what kind of credenza you might be polishing. Could you perhaps post a photo? I would be interested in seeing what a European credenza looks like.

I find WD-40 un-grimes my stainless perfectly. I don't care if the stainless shines, but I do like it clean without streaks.

What exactly is W.D. 40 ?

Could this be purchased online ?


The Evoo does not leave streaks at all ..

I was very suprised that the Evoo was so efficient and excelled in its job ..

Cooking Godess,

It is an Art Deco era piece, documented and it is from an old restaurant re-storer ..

The piece is a " low boy " with 2 cabinet doors and was used in a restaurant to store table linens, etcetra ..


The Chef was going to get rid of it, and we took it ! Not totally knowing where we would put it or how to clean it up !

Have a lovely day ..

WD-40 is motor oil.

WD 40 is a lightweight lubricant Often used as a rust preventative. I don't think it's ever used as a motor oil.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't available worldwide.
