Whether you can remove the dent in your stainless steel refrigerator depends largely on the dent's size and severity. Large dents, with sharp, well-defined edges, can be very difficult to remove and may require expert help. Small dents, especially rounder ones, can often be repaired in just a few minutes.

Things you need
- Can of compressed air
- Hair dryer
Wipe the dent with a damp cloth to clean it.
Hold a can of compressed air (the kind used to clean computer keyboards) upside-down and spray the contents onto the dent. The propellant in the can should freeze the dent. Freeze the dent as thoroughly as possible.
Heat the frozen dent immediately with a hand-held hair dryer. Hold the hot air directly on the frozen dent until the metal expands and "pop" back out.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 one time if necessary. If the dent fails to pop out after the second attempt, it probably will require professional help.
