Yeah, I won't let bleach anywhere near my stuff<scratches head> Odd. In brewing, bleach is anywhere from frowned upon to leading up to a fight when used on stainless steel. It has a bad effect on the outermost layer which is where much of the corrosion resistance is. If it works for you, go for it.
I've gotten quite attached to using Powdered Brewery Wash for both my brewing equipment as kitchen stuff. It's basically a Ph stabilzed OxyClean. Do NOT let it sit on bare aluminum, it will pit it in very short order, but does a bang-up job on baked on crud.
