    Ok I put my stainless steel parts to meat grinder in dishwasher. I know, I know. I have preached to wife and kids to never, ever, put it dishwasher. Well she was sick in bed and me and the boy was left to clean up kitchen after making sausage. Well my back was hurting and we was in cleaning mode and it wound up there. Now it got a black oxidizing color and turns everything a gray, black color it touches. I did this once with an old one, and just wasted the first few pounds of meat. I don’t wanna do that again. There has to be a trick to get this junk off. I have tried hot soapy water and vinegar. Takes the initial layer off but metal is still gray. Any help please.

    All my forks and spoons are stainless steel. Never had an issue with the dishwasher.

    Buy a bottle of stainless steel appliance cleaner and see if it helps? I don’t know if my grinder parts are stainless but I know it says to clean with water, wipe off completely, then wipe with cooking oil, and store. It does say not to put in dishwasher. My grinder is just a little cheapo so I doubt the parts are real stainless.

    Try a magic eraser on it.

    Are you sure the parts are stainless? More than likely aluminum oxide that will come off with repeated scrubbing with a baking soda solution.

    After looking I think they are some type of aluminum.

    Run some old bread through the grinder.

    Heard about the bread and a few other suggestions. I’ll work on it this week. Thanks for the ideas
