I have a flat top stove that has burnt on 'stuff'. I've tried just about everything on the market, to no avail. Does anyone know of something that will get the black burnt on mess off my stove?

My expert (my husband the appliance tech) suggests using Weiman (brand name) glass stovetop cleaner. This is the only thing you should be using on the ceramic cooktop. It has a very mild abrasive in it, but is made for glass cooktops. You can get it fairly cheap at Walmart. (03/13/2008)
Try the Magic Eraser they work wonders and won't scratch. (03/13/2008)
By just curious
Baking soda works great for this. Dampen the stove top, sprinkle on the soda and rub. Works better than any commercial cleaner that I've tried and it's cheap and eco-friendly.

Have you tried using a razor blade to scrape it off? My stove came with a razor blade holder. Seems like it would damage the stovetop, but it doesn't. (03/17/2008)

Oven cleaner won't hurt it, get yourself a single sided razor holder and use that to scrape. It won't scratch the glass, at least it hasn't on the last 3 that we've had. (03/17/2008)
Get yourself a small box of laundry detergent called Surf.
Make a thin paste of it with HOT water and put onto the stains/crud. Heat that with a blow dryer and scrape gently with a plastic pot scraper or scrub with a plastic mesh scrubber.
Surf works because of the enzymes in it. The hot water and extra heat activate the enzymes and you can much easier scrape or scrub it off. (03/18/2008)
