Are they the AtmaSphere Novacrons?
What you may be seeing is heat discoloration if it has kind of a black/blue tint to it. Been in the stainless fabrication business for the last 25 years, and the cleaner linked below works well on either mirror-finish stainless or chrome. As always, best to test it in an inconspicuous area first if at all possible (back panel maybe?).
Yes, Atma-Sphere Novacrons. I've got some Midas Touch on order Thanks.
Next project will be replacing the tube sockets.
The Midas touch will work on chrome too. Lots of variation in chrome plating thickness and hardness though, so definitely test it first. It'll clean quite well and should remove heat discoloration if it's not severe, just be sure it doesn't scratch. Has a very fine (like .5 micron particle size) abrasive in it.
And 6bq5 is correct on the stainless. 400 series stainless (410, 430) have a lower nickel content and have some ferrous properties. 300 series (301, 304, 316) have more nickel and are not typically ferrous enough for a magnet to stick. Most bright annealed polishes (ie: mirror finish) are made with 300 series. Not exclusively, but chances are good that you do have chrome if a magnet sticks to it as underneath the chrome plate is typically plain 'ol cold-rolled steel.
