I have a ceramic flat top stove. It is burnt on top. I have cleaned and used stove top cleaner and oven cleaner; it made it worse. What do I do?

If it is just burnt on a Mr Clean eraser works really well. You would have to use some elbow grease and clean it several times. The eraser has always gotten burnt food off my flat top stove when other things haven't worked.
If it's discoloration where the ceramic has physically changed colors, there may not be much you can do. The oven cleaner may have chemically caused permanent discoloration. However, if it's merely burnt on stains, you can try the below cleaners.
According to this site, you should not use anything with bleach, ammonia or caustic ingredients (i.e. oven cleaners). They can cause discoloration.
Have you tried cleaners like Cerama Bryte? Amazon users love it.

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?
