I agree Greg. Doesn't look like it's come back yet -- did the scrubbing two days ago. I'm going to put the wood sink cover back on just to see if that has anything to do with it. But that still wouldn't explain why it was also on the top of the stainless burners cover.

Hi Ellen Bars keeper friend will remove that rust . Pat

Yep, another vote for this stuff. It works great. Always clean with the grain.

Even the stainless steel in home products is not the same quality as thirty years ago. Loved my old Jenn-Air but my new Jenn-Air is a piece of junk.

A few people have had burner discoloration, when the flame has become mis-aligned and overheats the nearby metal. Check to see if the burner needs to be straightened a little. I haven't done it, but I have heard others have.

Seems to be a recurring theme with WoFat products- which is why those still in the pipeline may want to rethink that "stainless" option.

I think Donna meant the stove cover covers the discoloration.
