How can I get a dent out of a stainless steel refrigerator?

Bigger dents might be pulled out by attaching a suction cup or a magnet. Otherwise, probably would involve removing the panel with the dent and bumping it out, just like for a car.

Pops-a-dent as seen on teevee!

(annoying video, sound)

It seems like the world is out to RUIN your fridge!

Yeah, first try cleaning the surface, wetting it and popping it out with a (clean) toilet plunger.

This is an old trick that may work, if the dent is small enough:
- obtain a small hunk of dry ice (from a local ice factory)
- wrap it in a towel or rag
- hold it against the dent

The idea is that the cold will contract the metal enough so that it will shrink back into place. I've seen it work on cars, but only for small dings. If someone, like, kicked in your fridge door, this method won't work.
