I use Weiman glass cook top cleaner and it does a nice job. You can find it at WalMart in the grocery department.

Use ice and a straight blade on a angle as not scratch surface. Let ice sit for about a hour and then go back and forth with blade going back to icing. Wipe down in between.

I bought mine at Home Depot in the appliance department. It came in a kit with the cook top cleaner. Good luck!

Instead of buying the expensive cleaner to clean my glass top stove, I keep a shaker jar of baking soda (like the jars you would use for grated cheese or sugar) beside the stove and shake it on any spilled food. Use a damp cloth and a little scrubbing, then wipe clean with a towel and it comes up sparkling clean.

I just bought a house and it came with a new glass top stove. If I had a choice, I would not buy a glass top, because I had one before and accidentally dropped a pan lid on it and cracked the glass. Because of the cost to replace the glass, it was cheaper to purchase another stove. Anyways, I use a product called Soft Scrub. I buy it a Dollar Tree. The stove top is cleaned when the glass cools down, and have used s single edge razor to remove burnt residue. Due to my previous unfortunate experience, my wife cooks & I clean.

There are two products that work the best. Softscrub (with bleach or lemon) or Proforce Oven, Grill and Fryer Cleaner.

The Softscrub is excellent. You have to shake the container vigorously before applying and then wait 5-10 minutes. Use the abrasive side of a sponge or an abrasive pad and gently rub, increasing force gradually.

The Proforce is a spray and is more liquefied than the Softscrub. You do use rubber gloves. Spray on and wipe away with paper towel after 5-10 minutes. Be sure to wipe the stove top thoroughly.

The smudges can be tiresome, but I like the Softscrub the best.

Source: A small vial of the Soft Scrub came with the stove when they installed it.

Spray the stain with the Easy Off oven cleaner, or similar brand. Cover it with a glass pot lid or any pot lid that can withstand the heat. Turn on the burner until it gets red hot, then turn it off after four or five seconds. Let it sit until the burner cools. Then uncover and wipe off with a scrubber or you can use the razor blade. It should come right off.

While cooking, I stupidly grabbed a dry J-cloth to remove food off a still hot element and now there is melted J-cloth on my glass top stove. I have tried all the normal tricks for cleaning, such as the cleaner and letting it soak. Does someone have any suggestions?

Hi Lynn,

I don't have a glass top stove, but thought about trying steam iron cleaner. I buy it at our local fabric store. If it gets the "gunk" from ironing synthetic fabrics at too high a temperature off, maybe it will work on your stove - ?

I am not sure but I would think carefully using a sharp razor blade to lift it up would work. Angle it like you would when removing paint from a window.

We accidentally wiped a cotton dish towel across our new, black glass cooktop when it was hot and a baked-on residue formed.

Suggestions? Thanks!

Try making a paste of baking soda and water. Apply and leave on for at least hour, or maybe over night. Then scrub off. The baking soda shouldn't scratch!

I had a glass top electric stove. Use glass top cleaner and a rag that has been dampend with hot tap water to scrub it away.

I have tried everything, baking soda, a razor, and cook top cleaner. I am left with this big black stain that won't budge. Now what do I do? There has to be something that will remove it. Believe it or not I have even tried oven Easy Off. Anyone have any answers? Please help. I wonder if hot steam would do any thing?

Spray the stain with the Easy Off. Cover it with a pot lid. Turn on the burner until it just gets red hot, then turn it off. Let it sit for about a half hour. Then uncover and wipe off with a scrubber or you can use the razor blade. It should come right off.

This is a guide about cleaning spills on a smooth top stove. While there may be no more grates, elements, or drip pans to clean, food still gets on your smooth top stove. Once it dries or cooks, on these spills can be difficult to remove without damaging the surface.

What is going on with my stove top? I recently moved and my new place has a white electric stove top that's seamless (ie., completely flat surfaced). The problem is, whenever I use it, huge black marks (they look like burn marks) show up on the stovetop. I thought it was from my cheap pots and pans so I got new ones and it did no good!
What is going on? And how can I clean them?

Use an old credit card or other such plastic to scrape any burned on residue. At Walmart a product called Weiman glass cook top cleaner in a 15oz bottle is what is good for cleaning the glass top. Just reapply if it doesn't all come off the first time around.

Also just in case you are not aware of the type of pots and pans to use on glass; don't use teflon on high heat or aluminum pans. Stainless steel is recommended and no porcelain coated pans (they are usually speckled over another color) or cast iron. You can actually pit the glass stove top if cooking with these and who knows what temperature is safe for using.

I have the same stove. It's a ceramic stove top. It will stain each time you use it, but it is not burn marks. Do not scrape it. Try a Mr. Clean eraser which works quite well, and also a scotch brite scrubber for stubborn stains. There is also a cleaner for this that you can buy which cleans it easily.
