    It depends on how deep the scratch is. Try to buff out a minor scratch with a non-abrasive cleaner first. When applied with a little elbow grease, gentle polishing cleaners can buff out hairline scratches from your stainless steel fridge door. These cleansers, such as Bon Ami, Ajax, Comet, and specially formulated stainless steel cleaners, come in both a powder and a cream form.
    • If you are using a powder form, mix the product with water to form a paste.
    • Apply the paste or the cream to the hairline scratch with a damp cloth or sponge. As you rub the paste or cream into the scratch, always move in the direction of the grain.
    • Occasionally wipe away the cleaning product with a clean damp cloth and inspect the scratch. Continue to apply the cleaning product and buff the affected area until the scratch is no longer visible. [5]
    If the scratch remains, try to remove the scratch with a mildly-abrasive product, like whitening toothpaste.

    It depends on the scratch. I would try buffing with a stainless steel cleaner. If it is too deep it may not be recoverable. You might check with the manufacturer to see if they have any fixes available.

    most likely not if it is deep, however you can try a good car polish and give it a good rub with a soft cloth good luck
