Cleaning Black Stainless Steel

How to Clean a Jenn-Air Black Stainless Steel Vent Hood

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the finish, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive or harsh cleaners, or any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach, steel wool pads, gritty washcloths, or paper towels. Using these types of products may scratch and/or dull the clear coat of the black stainless steel door.

  1. Wash the exterior surfaces with warm water and mild soap or detergent.
  2. Wipe and dry. 
  3. We recommend using a clean microfiber cloth or a soft clean cloth to polish and dry. Ensure to thoroughly dry all surfaces.
