Brushed stainless steel scratch fix

I should never underestimate my loving daughters' ability to come up with things for me to do inside when I wanna be outside. So one of them decided to take a scrunge (the plastic brillo like thing) to the brushed stainless surface on our oven. Rubbed across the grain leaving more an abrasive mark than a scratch. I figured out the surface is non-coated so it appears it can be fixed. There's a whole lot of solutions out there, most with mixed reviews. I found a new product, Rejuvunate Stainless Steel Scratch Eraser kit. Anyone ever try this or is it a $6 "As Seen on TV" mistake? Rather not make it worse and definitely don't want professional help (though my wife would say I could really use it).

Try some toothpaste if it just minor scratches and go in the same direction as the "grain". Nylon scuff pads can do the job but getting the right level of abrasive is the trick so if you can find a spot to test the abrasive pad to get the right "scratch" level try to find the right pad. Try and apply even pressure so you have and even "scuff"...finger tips don't apply even pressure across the contact area so use a small piece of wood to spread the pressure evenly. It can be tricky and takes some finesse but with patience and elbow grease it can be done.

Didn't even think of that, it does work great on my stainless steel sink and revere copper bottom pans.

Bar Keepers Friend and throw out the green scrubbing pads. I've read you can use sandpaper with the grain to reduce the scratches but there's always the risk of making things worse.

Call it patina.
