1. Anyone taking care of maintenance on rusty hinges?
2. Is there more than one grade of Stainless Steel, like GOOD, BETTER, BEST?
 
My cart from Concession Carts is suppose to be stainless steel. After working it like new condition from late last August to late December, and it being stored in my garage since then, when I took it out it has brown stains here and there. It sure looked like rust. I could only get the stains out using "COMET" cleanser and one of those rectangle green scrubbers that my wife uses on her pans.
 
Any suggestions. The hinges are not stainless Steel. The drink cooler box hinge has the most rust. Am I worried about nothing?
 
Thanks again.

    Yes I guess there are different qualities of SS. If it is scratched you could try polishing it out with metal polish. Maybe try painting or replacing hinges. I have the same problem from road salt, but mine is in hidden areas and I polish it out with 0000 steel wool. Just keep on top of it.

      spraying it with oil periodically will help prevent the rust also.  I have the same problem with the griddle on my larger cart.  If i don't keep it oiled it will rust.  simply clean it and oil it.
