A plastic bag was melted onto my glass stove top. I had been told to scrape it off with a razor, heat it back up, and even to try ice. I remembered that I had bought a bottle of Goo Gone, so I tried this let it sit on the plastic for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then I used my scraper (just a plastic one for Pampered Chef) to scrape off the plastic. It worked like a charm. I then cleaned the whole stove top with Soft Ccrub and a sponge, finished off with some glass cleaner and it look as good as new.

Thanks, my husband sat a plastic bag on a hot burner. I used goo gone but wasn't having any luck with a knif to scrape it off. When I Googled and found your post, I got my razor that's kinda like a box cutter (?) and scraped it off. Cleaned the rest...

When left with just the residue of plastic on the cooktop: turn burner to maximum for 10 minutes (exhaust on for fumes), until residue turns from black to charcoal grey. After cooktop cools, wipe with a dry cloth. The residue will be nothing, but ash.

Source: Tried this after melting a plastic bag on the cooktop. Easiest cleaning ever.

So my daughter tried to clean off drippings from a hot burner with a scrubbie sponge and the sponge melted right onto the burner. Will any of the solutions offered here be best to try?

With the stove completely cool, I'd try using a razor blade.

THIS WORKS: APPLY SOFT SCRUB, BUT YOU MUST LET IT SIT ON THE BURNED ON PARTICLES FOR A GOOD 5 MINUTES OR MORE. THEN US A PLASTIC SCRAPER (PAMPERED CHEF SELLS THESE) AND SCRUB IT OFF. IT MAY TAKE DOING THIS SEVERAL TIMES. praying as you do it helps too!

My daughter dropped a plastic hot dog bag on my smooth top stove. I have tried the Cerama Bryte, scraping with my fingernail and nail polish remover but it did not remove it. Any suggestions on how to clean the burnt plastic from my smooth top stove?

OH MYYYY! I am so happy I followed this advice first! I had my Breville Toaster Oven on top of my glass top and somehow the burner got turned on, unbeknownst to me, the smell brought me into the kitchen the smoke was awful and the right side of the toaster oven base and feet were melted!

I opened the doors and turned on all fans, ugh the smell. BUT it was even worse when I saw the mess on my back burner, about an inch high of melted plastic stuck on like glue. I had tried to scape it off when still warm but thought it might pop off when it got coldWRONG!!

SO I have been lamenting for a week and then decided to google the problem.

OH what rejoicing after spraying the glob with WD 40 and letting it sit a minute ALTHOUGH I could see it was breaking it up or dissolving it or something was happening. I wiped it off and reapplied for the residue, then I used goo gone as another poster had said. Now my stove is like new, no scratches and no residue. THANK YOU for posting.

We did the same thing: put an electric kettle on our stovetop. It completely melted. Cleaned the mess in minutes using your technique. Worked like a charm. Our stovetop never looked better. Thanks a million! We thought we had to replace our stovetop.

I just burnt my brand new toaster oven forgetting there was a bag of bread on top of it in a heavy plastic bag. Used the WD40 and then Goo b Gone, scraped with a plastic scraper and am happy to say it all came off after a bit of work but still looks brand new...

When a pot overbooked on my electric smooth top stove, I wiped it quickly with what I thought was a cotton dishcloth. It had some polyester in it, which I did not realize until it melted as I swiped. Now I can not get it off. I tried commercial products made for stovetop as well as baking soda, and also Barkeeper's cleanser. Any ideas?

The plastic lid from a candle that I keep next to my stove was set on a hot flat top burner on my stove. I have gotten most of it off but still have a film of plastic and I am wondering how to get the rest off.

Plastic Melted on a Smooth Cooktop Range

We just did this last night (melted a plastic hot dog bun bag on our flat-top ceramic stove-top). I waited until the stove cooled then with my fingers peeled the heavy layers off the stove (I was surprised at first that I was able to do this). Then I used a WD40 like lubricant & applied it to the stove-top, then with the papertowel I cleaned the area with a circular motion. It took a few minutes but I was amazed at how well it came clean. Good luck! (10/22/2006)

I melted a section of a plastic cutting board on a burner, and it was a mess. I soaked cloth pads with WD-40 and left them on the burner for about 15 minutes, removed them and turned on low heat for about 30 seconds to soften the plastic. I then scraped as...

I melted a plastic container on my daughter's glass cook top. How do I safely remove what is left?

Turn oven on so the top gets warm, not hot. You can also use a hair dryer to help with the heating. Use a plastic plate scraper to help gently remove it.
