BKF(bar keepers friend).. Whatever you do, do not use anything containing chorine(bleach, etc.).

brillo works great. Been in pizza joints most my life and a brillo pad will get anything off of stainless and make it look great. As said above bar keepers friend also works great.

I don't understand the bleach part thou, been using bleach and water to sanitize stainless work tables and never had an issue.

My wife buys some generic stainless steel cleaner from the grocery store. Works great.

It's corrosive to SS. If you wipe it down, rinse it off and dry it, you're probably okay.

I guess medium to long term exposure will fark it up. All dependent on the ppm of water/chlorine mix.

+1 to Bar Keepers Freind, but be careful to rinse it off well as it contains oxalic acid

I've used comet (with bleach) and scrub pad. Cleans it and haven't had any problem.

We've got stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and the wife has tried everything and swears that this stuff is the best out there:

I had this stuff recommended to me recently as a great grill cleaner. They also make a SS version:

I just used Greased Lightning and fine steel wool on the stainless lid on my Traeger 75 with excellent results.

Hey, this is the same stuff my wife buys. Like I said earlier, seems to work well for us.
