GE Cafe Series...or any all stainless cook top stove

  • 4

Does anyone have the new GE Cafe series stove? The cook top is all stainless and I'm wondering how hard that is to keep clean. I currently have an enamel cook top which isn't too bad to clean. I'm just not sure how all stainless will hold up? thanks

  1. i have a dcs cooktop and a stainless steel hood, backsplash and part of my counter also in stainless. very very easy to keep clean. i use simple green spray and just wipe. occasionally i use stainless steel polish which helps to deter fingerprints. otherwise its a breeze to keep clean.

    1. Funny, someone said below that they use Simple Green and occassionally use a stainless steel polish. Simple Green actually makes a stainless steel cleaner & polish, all in one (label says non-toxic, like the green stuff). I buy it at my grocery store (Ralph's/Kroger) and use it just about every day. I cook a lot and have stainless cook top/range and besides cooking splatters, it also gets fingerprints, smears from where I try to wipe up as I'm going... after all is said & done, a few sprays, a wipe with a soft towel, and all is well. You should try it - makes clean up a snap, and it looks nice in between, too.

        any problems with food stains? I heard that even water that boils over will leave burnt marks that don't come off. Ant experience with this?

          simple green stainless polish ???? where ? i havent seen it in the kroger where i shop. infact i have used the bbq cleaner made by simple green for the same purpose with great results. cant find that either.
