Barkeeper's Friend is fantastic for cleaning anything made of
stainless steel.

It seems to do something chemical to the steel and requires just a
quick wipe with virtually no elbow grease at all. I've never used it
for the sort of blackening you're describing, but it must be worth a
go. Don't pay Amazon's price though.

Cheers!
