Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLee My Vigo Stainless Steel Sink Looks Like New Again!
Frankly, if you have dug a gouge the size and depth of a canyon into your stainless steel, it is not coming out. I can tell you, this morning, I had several swirling scratches and a couple of significant scratches from work by a contractor. He actually used by stainless steel, apron front farmhouse sink to rinse his dirty rags from tile mortar. When we got home, we were horrified. It took me two hours of scrubbing to remove the gunk from my sink. When I saw the resulting scratches, I thought I would cry. My husband started looking up stainless steel scratch remover and found this. Honestly, I did not expect it to work. Nothing ever does, it seems. My husband just finished working on the sink. He followed the instructions to the letter. I am thrilled with the results. Nothing is perfect, and this is a sink. We use it. Dirty dishes go into it several times a day. My kitchen sees a ridiculous amount of use because I cook. The swirled scratches are about 90% gone. Even the two deeper scratches are gone. The sink looks amazing. If he worked on the swirled scratches a bit longer, they would probably disappear completely. This works so much better than I expected. I would have paid 10 times as much for it, as long as it works. I no longer want to cry when I look at my sink, which is less than 6 months old.

We recently bought a stainless steel refrigerator that was marked down due to scratches. I got Rejuvenate Stainless Steel Scratch Eraser Kit hoping to restore the refrigerator back to it's lost glory ;-) I was not disappointed. Rejuvenate Stainless Steel Scratch Eraser Kit is a really easy fix that worked like a charm. I really loved the results and would recommend it to everyone.

I am one of those people who is bothered by scratches/dings (O-C about it?-maybe), I even took a course to learn out to remove dings from our cars...., and I am good at it. So, the other day, our maid service managed to damage the stainless steel panel on our Kenmore Elite Dishwasher. Don't ask me, but sometime took a green scotch brite pad, and attempted to remove a stain using a high-pressure circular scrubbing action-I was fit to be tied-professionals using scruff pads on stainless steel?? You could see the blemish from 15 feet, away. The panel was basically "ruined", and the replacement cost was $104. I know that these scratch kits for stainless steel, other hand can work in many cases. I had it done previously on a range hood that was delivered damaged from the factory. Long story short, I thought I would try this $5 plus kit from HD, before ordering a replacement panel. The instructions make clear the it will not work on "coated" stainless steel-doing so will make the issue even worse. So you need to verify that your appliance is uncoated stainless steel. I made a quick call to Whirlpool (The manufacturer of the Kenmore line for Sears), and they confirmed my unit's panel was uncoated stainless. So I took the kit, using the light scratch grey pad, and a few drops of the cutting agent, and started with light to moderate pressuring, running back-forth in the direction of the grain, 8-10 passes. Needed to do it about 2-3 times, and the damage was not improved by at least 95%. I decided that was good enough, as the blemish was no longer visible from any distance. The blending of the repaired area, at least in my case, was minor. Finished, put some Zep alu. cleaner on the panel, and you would never know it was wrecked by my cleaning service. So I am happy, and found that the product really did deliver. The key what you need to do, if you try it: do make sure you are dealing with an uncoated aluminum surface. Secondly, I would start with light pressure in the direction of the grain, not heavy. That may be the reason some people are reporting the repair ends up up looking worse than before. Start lightly, you can always go back and redo or add more pressure with another pass over the damage area. But it worked for me, and it solved my problem not having to have an argument with the cleaning service to pay $104 to replace the panel.

The kit is not for glossy stainless finishes. The kit comes with three scratch remover
pads that you use depending on the extent of the damage you are trying to repair.
The heavy grit pad is a piece of sand paper. Heavy grit sand paper. Keep in mind
the deeper you take the stainless down to the surface the more buffing you will have
to do to bring the even finish out. The second pad is a scotch like pad, course and
the third is the same but a less course. The kit also comes with cutting oil which
was really a liquid in a wet-nap size packet. The application must be with the grain
of the stainless. Following the instructions, the results were not as amazing as the
before and after results on the box. I gave it a second application and there was
slightly more improvement, but again not much. I ran out of the cutting liquid and
since I could still see the damage, I took out my reliable stainless cleaner Hope's
Perfect Sink and used the Rejuvenate pad for a third and forth pass. Finally, some
noticable results. My dishwasher is not restored like new but it was an improvement
versus buying a new stainless cover for my dishwasher priced at several hundred dollars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super2 Totally worth the investment
The product worked exactly as described. The instructions were fairly easy to understand and while it was labor intensive the end result was beautiful. Completely saved my bacon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BilltheEngineer Great results with a little elbow grease
I was doubtful how well this would work and if it would make things worse. But it does work really well. Look at the attached images. I had a few scratches in the range top, not really deep but enough that they were easily visible and you could feel with you finger or running a fingernail over it.
There are 3 pads you use to workout the scratches, a piece of sandpaper and two abrasive pads that you use with a polishing compound. There is a little handle you attach the pads to with hook and loop fasteners (velcro). The pads were not attach velcro very straight but it worked without and issue. The kit only works for small areas, it's not meant to redo the entire front of an appliance, but for the price buy a few kits and you can do it.
I was leary at first that using the sandpaper was going to leave big scratches or change the look of the area I was working on so I started with light pressure but noticed that basically did nothing. So I increased the pressure to where I could see it blending out the scratch. The sandpaper does require I good about of force and takes a little while to get the scratch to disappear. this is the longer and most work. Also make sure you keep in the same direction of the polish of the stainless steel or you will have to sand out those marks too. The polishing with the medium and fine abrasive pads with the polishing fluid is a lot less work. You still need to apply a good amount of pressure.
I found that if you work the scratched area and them work area around it a little bit in all three steps you could not tell where your scratch was. There isn't a lot of polishing fluid so when it ran out I used window cleaner in its place and it seems to work okay. I also found that this works well for getting stains and other burnt on grease off. It can be tedious at times but I basically cleaned up the entire top to the gas range less than an hour. There were only a few scratches, so I did not have to do a lot of sanding. One other recommendation is to wear rubber/latex/neoprene gloves of so you can keep your hands clean.
