Stainless steel microwaves add a modern, professional touch to any kitchen. The non-porous stainless steel interior repels food stains and odours. Maintain your stainless steel microwave's mirrorlike shine with regular cleaning, especially after cooking foods that tend to splatter. A clean microwave interior will lead to better heating performance and a longer appliance life.

  1. 1

    Add 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1/2 cup water to a microwave-safe bowl.

  2. 2

    Place the bowl in the stainless steel microwave and heat it to a boil. Turn the microwave off, and leave the door shut for five to 10 minutes. During this time, the vinegar steam will loosen any food residue as it sits.

  3. 3

    Open the microwave door and carefully remove the bowl and turntable.

  4. 4

    Dampen a sponge or cloth with warm water and wring it out. Wipe the stainless steel interior to remove any food particles or residue. Dry the interior with a towel.

  5. 5

    Place the turntable in the sink and wash it with a sponge and 1/2 tsp dish soap. Rinse the turntable thoroughly and dry it with a towel.

  6. 6

    Place the turntable back in the stainless steel microwave and shut the door.
