Question
Can steel wool pads be used to clean stainless steel appliances -refrigerators, ovens, toasters, etc. without harming (defacing) the appliance?

Answer
Stainless Steel products (unless Commercial) are normal never 100% Stainless. I would use a good stainless steel cleaner and then a polish.  Once cleaned and treated with the polish, cleaning will be a breeze.  Of course, you will have to keep a good polish on it to maintain easily.  If a magnet sticks to your stainless steel appliance, it is not stainless steel.  If this is the case, treat it with utmost care or you will ruin the finish.

Good Luck,
