This post is a bit of an extension of the recent one about stainless steel cleaning. We just ordered my Christmas gift (I assume I am not the only one here who loves getting a new appliance of any size as a gift!) and my stainless, smooth top, double oven range will be here on Wed. I chose stainless because I do like the look of it as well as for resale and I chose the smooth top because that seems to be the direction everything is going and I am so tired of my warped coils. In a perfect world I would have a gas cook top with an electric oven, but I think as long as I can keep it all clean and as scratch free as possible I will love it. Does anyone have any advice on how to keep the stove top clean and scratch free as well as any further advice about cleaning stainless steel?
