Has anyone got a stainless steel cooker who can advise on whether they mark easily , and how easy it is (or is not)to clean the outside of them ?

Tossing between stainless steel and black,in Belling or Leisure cookers. Any advise welcome, as whole palaver is keeping me from my sleep.

Thank you.

Stainless Steel is a soft metal & scratches easily as I know from my own hob. The oven front is not so easy to scratch.

Didn't think about it being a soft metal. Thanks Tatey. Depending on the quality of the cooker, I suppose it could be pretty awful.

Its rare that oven front metal shows signs of wear but on some models the printing wears off if cleaning is aggressive (which there is no need for).

Bright steel finish will show marks more than a brushed finish.

I wouldn't let the material bother you, just choose on aesthetics (and blame me later).

I doubt there will be any 'aggressive' cleaning going on, just don't want greasy little finger marks all over.

Some are prone to finger marks (I'm backing out rapidly), the brushed ones that feel rough are the main culprits, I'm not sure if the better ones have a protective varnish or clear enamel over them but they look brushed but feel smooth.

Maybe they are the ones the class as 'silver' rather than stainless steel.

Think I'll go black. You know what they say ? "once black never turn back" wink

Finger marks and streaks from cleaning.

My Ex hated the Stainless Steel hob with a passion.
Wiping with a wet cloth drys streaky, its worse than a window.

Do your homework.
Take close note to what's glass and metal.

Thanks everyone.

Mark, I take your comment seriously and it would appear that nobody really loves the stainless steel.

Also thanks for your handy little tips Star and Snowy.

Today I asked a person who makes kitchens, his answer was much the same and he doesn't really recommend them. So decision has been made.
happy

Best thing to do Granny, every time you use your cooker,just give it a wipe over with a damp cloth.

A lot of 'stainless steel simply isn't.

'Stainless steel finish' means its made of plastic with a surface which resembles stainless steel closely. I was looking at a microwave oven - allegedly stainless steel but was actually ordinary steel coated with this finish. It was a VERY good imitation however, and probably would have lasted as long as the oven without anyone being the wiser.
