Re: How best to fix this

How about steaming the rest of the interior to match the door...?

Was at our local box store and noticed the attached that may cover up the issue and provide from happening again. The pattern would help break up the other stainless apliances you have. They are brushed stainless with peel and stick backing and cost is low. Think this was at home depot but may be found elsewhere.Click image for larger version

It was the easiest repair I ever did so I went though all 44ft of the boat what an improvement for 9 bucks.

Permanently revive and restore the original color and luster in one step, without removing any of the existing finish. Most wood finishes that seem to need a complete refinishing job can be completely restored in a few minutes with this simple wipe-on, wipe-off process. White heat rings and water marks, sun fade, oxidation, smoke damage, and most other blemishes can be quickly blended away. Before you go to the extreme of stripping it, try restoring it!

This stuff worked like a miracle! Perfect job! Easy! It not only did a flawless job on the damaged door above the stove, I used it on the wood around the interior of the companionway (which has been wet hundreds of times) and it looks like new! I did the desktop of the nav station as well and it looks great!

I would say that if Howard's has a color like yours it is one of those things you'll use and then wish you had discovered it years ago!!!

My first thought was to make a stainless cover for the door - but the Admiral nixed it. The fronts of the fridge, freezer and ice maker are already brushed stainless and I think she would get over it. Or maybe she thinks "Enough already with the stainless".

I am at least a bit reluctant to strip and refinish the door because I'm afraid of not matching the rest of the interior. Rich
I think you need to "suggest" to the Admiral that function takes precedence over aesthetics. If she's the Admiral she should be telling you that. You could glue on tiles.
