I polished the chrome on my beach cruiser. Awesome. In the grocery store right where they sell Ajax and Comet. Great stuff and I do use it on my sharpmaker stones.
Bar Keeper's FRiend is a great product>> you can usually find it here in most parts of the USA in grocery, hardware and variety stores like Rip-mart. It's found most of the time right on the same shelf that they keep the Comet and Ajax on. It's in a Gold Can with a Blue & White sheild label that says Bar Keeper's Friend.
I find it to be an excellent product for all kinds of cleaning chores. It's great on stainless steel and copper. I use it on all my RevereWare cooking equipment that has the copper bottom and stainless body.
It's great for all kinds of ceramic cleaning and super on ceramic and glass top stoves. It works on a chemical action rather than on an abrasive action like most cleansers do. I've been using it on sharpening stones of many varieties since the mid to late 90s.
There are many outlets you can buy it online. The Dollar General chain of stores is the cheapest I've found it at. I usually buy it by the case. We use it a lot at work too. I would love to see something that would work better than BKF.
