Thanks, for the info. Learn something new everyday. just checked. the
sink, oven front, microwave front, vent hood are ALL non-magnetic and have
no rust forming
However, relatively new, purchased 2/2012 for $2,420. it's a rather small
Kitchenaid fridge, model KFCS22EVMS
Even though didn't even roll it into position until 7/2012 it's now passed
its one year warrantee.
not cheap at all!
I was simply irritated by their lack of customer support trying to get any
answers over the telephone, but now I'm more livid with being sold
stainless steel that really isn't. Gross misrepresentation.
Too late for me to go back through VISA to get reimbursed
hmmm.... any ideas?
Interesting. In that case they should have used two layers. magnetic under
and true stainless on top.
Or, it's a feture, like the way ?? candy company is trying to sell
'foamed' candy bars and showing how much people enjoy buying less product
and eating a pile of chocolate flavored air, or something.
Magnetic stainless steel _is_ "true" stainless steel. There are many
kinds of stainless steel, just like there are many kinds of steel.
I have doubts what you have if it rusts rapidly in a dry house. Ordinary
steel shouldn't rust as fast as you describe.
But then you said all stainless steel rusts.
You could try wax in a small area.
I read long ago that cleaning stainless with steel wool can result in rust.
This is a kitchen fridge that cost a bit of coin, so not likely to abuse
it with steel wool.
Damp environment? Arizona?! In the winter with the heat exchanger
running!! From the way a slice of bread, a damp paper towel, or anything
goes dry in no time, doubt you'd claim our home as damp. If you leave
crackers out they crisp up, home is not damp at all.
I'm just angry that a product called 'stainless steel' is rusting so fast!
wipe a dry paper towel across the surface and you get a dingy brown sheen
to the towel.
Wax? hmmmm haven't tried something like that. But the whole point of
having SS appliances is that the surface can be cleaned, covering with
wax, negates that.
