When carrying some furniture through to the garden, I left a ding in my stainless steel fridge-freezer door just a few mm in diameter. My girlfriend says no sane person would notice it and not to worry, but I hate causing damage and not at least trying to fix it, and it is visible from a very low angle. I'd estimate it to be 3mm - 5mm and not maybe 1mm depth at the deepest point.

What could pull out a tiny dent like this? The other side isn't accessible to pop it out. I have a feeling a standard toilet plunger would be too large to target the dent.

Would heat work, with the consideration that there's a freezer going on the other side?

I'd obviously prefer not to spend money on an expensive gizmo or cause more damage.

Glue a cocktail stick to one of these jumping toy things.

Small dents like that are really tricky to pull, because there's less surface area and more plastic deformation. Your best chance is with a PDR tool (about a tenner from AliExpress). You could try just buying the puller tabs and yanking on it with a pair of pliers, which should only cost you a couple of quid.

Hot melt glue a stick to it. Pull and wiggle.
There's only a 50% chance you'll make it worse.

Thanks, I picked up a PDR tool and might try a bit of heating and cooling first for a wiggle, as well. I'll report back the result if I remember.

I'll take >>2876 as an emergency backup option, and >>2874 as something to do if I ever find myself bored and on a desert island with these exact items and a sheet of dented steel.

for what it's worth, don't stick these to your forehead unless you want a perfectly round hickey. Same goes for halved tennis balls. Younger me was daft.
