Stainless Steel products will always scratch from use, but no need to worry as scratches can be prevented or removed on The Galley. To prevent scratches, we always recommend purchasing a complete Galley Bottom Grate Set. They are made exclusively for Galley Workstations and will protect the bottom of your basin. If scratches do occur, the Galley’s unique Angel Finish is renewable back to factory condition! Please contact our Customer Service department regarding instructions for renewal at 800.375.4255 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
