My Whirlpool fingerprint resistant SS fridge is magnetic, the Kohler sink
custom made counter/backsplash isn't.
It might be noted that 304 will show surface rust. 316 won't
Are you certain it is SS? I have Clean Steel Range, Fridge. SS Microwave /
Range Hood. And soon to purchase Clean Steel Dishwasher. I tell you what,
the microwave shows every damn smudge, fingerprint..everything. I don't even
have to tough it, just get close, and fingerprints show up. The stove and
fridge I have only wiped down once since May and that was only because it
seemed like it needed it. It didn't have any appearance of dirt or smudges.
Now the glass cooking surface of the stove is a different story. Very easy
to clean, but must be done very often.
Perhaps if you do have the SS Fridge, it has been coated with something to
maintain cleanliness and some sort of magnetizer. Like I said, mine is the
clean steel...is magnetic....and looks identical to the stainless.
