Is there a way of restoring a scratched up silver metal stovetop. Scratches every direction, which I just added to with a pot scrubber, trying to get accumulated grease off! I'd rather not paint it. Just trying 0000 steel wool, but that doesn't help. I wonder if we can at least buff it, so that all the microscratches are going parallel, like a new kitchen sink. Better than painting it, I think. Might be getting a bit obsessive, but I'm sure I'm not the only one..... Thanks

There are commercial metal polishing companies. There's one not to far from me. It requires a high revolution orbiter and rouge. Your stove top is probably stainless steel... it doesn't polish as easily as the aluminum belly band or piece over the door.

Look them up in your local yellow pages or web source, get a quote... you may find you'll be happy with the way it looks.

No, you're not the only one

As Donna suggested, a commercial burnishing or polishing house can restore the factory pattern rather easily. Problem is, it can be spendy and these places are few and far between.

My advice is to have it powdercoated. Very durable, easy to clean, looks great, and protects the metal all at the same time. Should run about $20. Might as well take your range hood and furnace grate and have them all refinished (to match) at the same time, come to think of it.

Nice stuff, but I believe it STILL scratches. I have a stove top lid that needs a little TLC as it still has the original clear plastic cover on it and where the cover is lifting (lifting at corners mainly) its showing signs of oxidation <grrrrrrr!!>

Hi: Peggy... Try Auto-Sol metal polish!!! The truckers seem to use it by the pound. It is avail. @ Can. Tire and auto supply stores. It's not cheap but avail. in a tube or 1 lt. can. I use it to get the rust off the wheel caps and the stove top of our Boler...they are chrome.
