Brushed/Graining of SS = Less Clean

mobiledynamics | Mar 4, 201905:54 AM     8

Off topic.Some new pieces are not high polished or matte smooth polished. I would say they have a touch of graining/toothiness to it.

I have not broken out the BKF in maybe 9 months. For the interiors that get a high sear, hot water soak with SS scrubbie get's it clean most of time. If I'm feeling like Mr Clean, I might just sprinkle some baking soda on it while scouring.

I have observed as such. The pieces that have such tootiness/subtle graining to them, they have what I would heat staining or just overspray/heat staining on them on the exteriors. I suppose I CAN take some BKF and give it a polish to observe if it changes anything? Anyhow, I threw them all in the dishwasher on the Pots/Pans Cycle (which ALWAYS leaves my hood grates, or smooth polished stainless) pretty dang clean with zero residual overspray cooking oil on them.

I suspect it's the toothiness/graining of the SS .
The interiors are clean, but I think that's just the nature of it with contents on them when there is heat (versus the exterior).
