ESP is now doing scratch removal for stainless steel
David found a product and equipment to remove scratches in Stainless Steel and bring it back to "like new". Stainless steel is a very soft metal. Using green scouring pads does the most of the damage to these metals on stove tops, hoods, sinks and appliances.
Magic Al's Glass and Metal Magic: A soft white polish pad or a soft towel will work. One of the tricks is to use the cream polish with a wet or damp towel.   This will get out light imperfections and we use it with the new stainless steel scratch removal system as the final polish with a damp towel.
This is more user friendly and will not scratch. A dry towel may damage, this will depend on the quality of the stainless steel. Please go with the grain of the metal. This product will also clean hard water deposits on the shower door and the metal around it. This can be done with a white 3M pad. No green, Blue, brown, red, or black.
The better Bio's #179 is a great degreaser for grease build up on stoves, and hoods.

Stone Pro Sealer Passed the ESP Test - Olive Oil Overnight!
StonePro Ultimate Pro sealer which is better known as Granite sealer has been tested and we are please to say scored an A+!
David did a test: He took the back side of piece of granite which is raw and porous and applied 2 coats of sealer - Ultimate Pro (is designed for dense stones like Granite) and Pro Sealer (is the general purpose sealer). We put Olive oil on the stone and left it there overnight. (Spilled cooking oil is a common problem for unsealed or poorly sealed countertops with olive oil being one the most common culprits.)  The next morning he wiped the oil off the surface and was amazed to find no trace of an oil stain.
WOW, this is great because most sealer companies take the amount of solids out to get better profits and don't tell anyone. Ultimate Pro has more solids and really does a great job.  And by the way, it is thinner so it goes deeper into the stone, and is still completely VOC compliant. Most stone professionals will only warranty their work if the stain is wiped up in less than 5 minutes.  The same is true for us, but it is great to know that this sealer really does repel stains even after 12 hours.

shrimpThis Month's Recipe...
Jumbo Shrimp Stuffed with Cilantro and Chiles
8 jumbo shrimp, in the shell (about 1 1/4 pounds)
3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves stripped
Juice of 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning
Freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 large jalapeno, with seeds
2 scallions (white and green parts)
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Prepare an outdoor grill with a medium-high fire. Without removing the shells, slit about 3/4 of the way through the shrimp down the ridged back and remove the vein that runs down the center. Rinse and pat the shrimp dry. Whisk thyme leaves, lime juice, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and black pepper, to taste, in a shallow nonreactive bowl or dish. Lay the shrimp cut side down in the lime mixture and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In a food processor, pulse the garlic, jalapeno, scallions, remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt to make a coarse paste. Add the cilantro and pulse just enough to incorporate into the mixture. Spoon the mixture into the opening in the shrimp and close the shrimp. Grill the shrimp shell side down (to keep filling from falling out) for 3 minutes. Turn to the other shell side, cover, and grill another 2 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink and are slightly firm to the touch. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
Cook's Note: Shrimp cooked in the shells are more intensely flavorful. Leaving the shells on provides a buffer against overcooking, a misfortune many shrimp suffer. Shrimp, even these jumbos, continue to cook once removed from the grill. It's always best to cook them just until opaque and let the delicate shellfish finish cooking off the heat.
Jumbo shrimp in the shell can be a knife and fork sort of deal unless you're outside and it's summer and you are feeling very relaxed. Serve these with lots of napkins if your crowd is the peel-and-eat type.
