Whenever I have rust-looking spots like that, I take a small piece of aluminum foil and rub... it does come off. I'm guessing a very fine grade of steel wool would do the trick too. But whatever you use, test it gently first, to make sure it's not causing deep scratches.

If it can't be fixed with chocolate... why bother?

And I "third" it. The metal composition of products labeled "STAINLESS" vary by manufacturer. Some compositions will rust. Many brands of automatic dishwasher detergent include an oxygen bleach which accelerates the oxidation (rusting) process.
