TY suzi- the smudges do bug me a little but not as much as it does someone else. The other day said if you can do it better go ahead. It looks just like I did it. Now that I look at the stuff he brought home its a cleaner and polish. The polish is probably what is making it smudge. I think I'll look at the store to see what I can find. We have a grocery distributor that sells all kinds of things, I think I'll check there too.

One of the good things about black appliances is that they help hide smudges and fingerprints very well!

I once had a coppertone fridge. How I LONG for that color to come back!

Suzi, your stove is gorgeous! And your kids are even more gorgeous. And your cookies look like the ones I got in lovely little french bakeries in Provence. Fabulous!

Mikki, look at a restaurant supply house for a product called Sheila Shine. It's about $9 for a big can that will last you a couple of years. That stuff is fantastic for stainless steel and all sorts of other surfaces. No kidding, you won't have fingerprints and when you spill stuff on the stove and don't get to it right away, it still comes off easily. You apply it every 2 or 3 months (just wipe it on) and it's amazing.

I also like Barkeeper's Friend for my stainless sink. But its more like Comet, so I'm not sure it would be gentle enough for the stove.
Sears also had a bottle of Soft Scrub type stuff on each stove when I went to buy it with my MIL, she really likes it on her black.

Well both of your stoves look fabulous! Just gives me oven envy!! Mine is a basic model that came with the house about 30 years ago. Suzi, your black one matches my car and is only a smidgen smaller!!LOL The biscuits, kitchen and kids all look good too.

Congrats for getting it and may you always be happy with it and the food it produces.

Also, try Greased Lightning.

This stuff though, mainly works wonders and helps get rid of old tough sticky grease that piles up on top of appliances which comes from frying foods, but it also works on smudges, fingerprints and grease as well.

There's also Windex, which works pretty well on smudges.

Maybe that would work on my microwave....
It is over the stove (it matches now) and the fan vents to outside, but the exhaust slats at the top are just filled with grease that I cant get to unless I take it off and soak it in something, then shove a Q-tip in to wipe it out. I swear the guy we bought this house from must have fried every single meal! I've been de-greasing my kitchen (or trying) for almost 3 years now!

Chocolate chip I think. Maybe Gingersnaps.

Haha!! I like that one.

Yeah, that also sounds like caked-on grease that has built up for many years.
Greased Lightening should get it out, even though it might be hard to get at, like you said.

In addition to fried foods not being healthy for you, it also is unhealthy for your appliances as well. It makes them sticky and rancid-smelling from spoiled
sticky old smelly grease.

The stuff is availible at your local supermarket, but I bought the gallon size at Home Depot and just fill the smaller bottles as needed. Great stuff!
