Default Scored New SS Table. Need cleaning suggestions

I scored this table for free from a friend. He brought it to me and said it had been sitting outside. After cleaning it up it still has this haze on one end of the table top.

I'm not sure if it is some chemical reaction from another metal coming into contact with it, or if it was due to exposure from the sun as something may have been sitting on the other end keeping it covered and protected. You can see some of the haze along the edges on the "clean" end.

I used Bar Keepers Friend on it and it didn't budge it at all.

Any suggestions as far as what compound or cleaning agent (if any) I could try?

Nice score!!

BKF would have been my choice. Is there a clear-coat or something on it I wonder?

How about a cloth buffing wheel and some rubbing compound, maybe you can buff it out.

Haze or not, nice table for a brewer!

Try EZ -OFF oven cleaner. Have had great luck with it removing the most stubborn and baked on stains in the past.

Should I use it differently?

Have you tried it on Stainless Steel? I just read a can of Easy-Off Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner and it read not to apply to exterior surfaces.

Could this be what my haze is to begin with?

It couldn't hurt to try the EZ-off on a small area first. It just might work.

Nice score BTW. I'd love to have a table like that.

I would try polishing compound, the kind you find near the car washing and waxing supplies.
