My recently restored 75 year old Copper Clad wood cook stove needed a rejuvenated top. Different oils did not seem to hold up, plus they smoked terribly. I scrubbed the cast iron really well with some steel wool and a wire brush as stated in the directions. Then sprayed some 409 household cleaner and used a lot of paper towels, taking my time and removing as much grime and oily residue as possible. Used a 1 throwaway paint brush as recommended by another reviewer, which works perfectly. Waited for a bit, then buffed with an old T-shirt from the rag box. I did this during the summer, so the polish had several months to cure. The first fire of the year produced a mild smell and a small amount of smoke. I placed a small fan so it would blow air across the top and out a nearby open window. Took about 45 minutes to complete. Result: beautiful early 20th Century charm.

Even helped restore an old gas grill. . .not perfect coverage since it had peeling paint, but a big improvement !!!

Makes our Dutch West Federal Black (no enamel) stove look beautiful in winter and preserves it through the humid summers. Tip: use a throw away 1 paint brush to apply.

Highly recommended! Our 30+ year-old wood stove looks new. Application was simple, clean-up is easy. We had to open all doors and windows during the first fire after application, but only that one time. I couldn't be more pleased with our results.

My wood stove was looking very neglected but this polish works like a dream! It was easy to use, went on nicely and polished up beautifully! It washed up quite easily with just plain soap and water, as well. I love this stuff and will be ordering more!

We have a woodburning insert in our fireplace and use it regularly. The cast iron was looking worn and this product has brought back the luster and glow to the unit. And without any odor that can linger in the house! Would recommend to anyone.

This blacking was so easy to use and the stove looks brand new! I'll definitely be using this for years to come.

A few weeks ago I was desperate for a stove blacking that did not smell up the house. I ordered this on and it did a perfect job. My stove looks like new...so I ordered more for my daughter and myself.
