Is stainless steel difficult to clean?

No, stainless steel is easy to clean. Stainless steel is the normal choice of material in catering and food preparation areas. The smooth and non porous surface makes it difficult for bacteria and other micro-organisms to adhere and survive. Clean your stainless steel sink and countertop frequently with warm water, soap, or ammonia using a sponge or soft cloth. Thoroughly rinse with water, and wipe dry with a soft cloth to eliminate water spots. Avoid abrasive products as they will leave scratches. On brushed and polished surfaces, wipe along the grain and not across it. Glass cleaners also perform well.
