Cleaning A Smooth Top Stove Surface

I've owned a smoothtop stove for some six years or so and I've made many attempts at cleaning up my "muck ups".

For average problems, there are many solutions out there. But for those very bad mistakes there are very few - if any - good solutions. I've tried almost everything. The scraping is tedious and doesn't always (or very seldom) works.

First try baking soda with a little water. It's cheap and abrasive but doesn't scratch. Cleaners like Barkeeper's Friend are abrasive but have about the same effect as baking soda. Glass cleaner is good for mild problems, just let it soak.

I'm gonna try the oven cleaner but be careful. I've been to different web sites and they have no comments on it's effectiveness.

Glasstops - a solution or a problem? Are you perfect? Then they are a solution. You aren't perfect? - then they are no better than a regular electric stove.

When my panties no longer fit, I offered them to Goodwill and my children, but no one wanted them. Being of an older generation that didn't waste things, I just let them sit in the hamper. Then inspiration hit. The rough texture was perfect for cleaning my smooth stovetop without abrasive cleansers.

Since they were already moist, water isn't even needed but if yours are dry, a few drops of water helps. I feel good because I saved money and the Earth at the same time. Now my kids think Grandma is a genius!

The Mr Clean earser works wonderful on a smooth top stove.

Baking soda dries in white swirls that take forever to mop up; I will never use it again. On my glass cooktop, I merely pour water on, sometimes with dish liquid, let soak, then use my handy razor blade that I keep there for that purpose. I also have a plastic scraper. I use a cloth to mop everything up. Occasionally I use a small amount of cream cleaner product sold for this task.

I've tried a number of things and the best and easiest thing I've found is baking soda contrary to what another person said. If the service is dirty and not cleaned up perfectly before putting another pot on it's much harder to clean up.

I'll never have another cook top like this. Only reason I have it now is because it's in the house I bought and too new to replace. Hate the thing.

I am of the older (much older) generation and do no take too well to change, but I love my smooth top stove. You have to clean up spills as soon as they cool off and I find that good old baking soda and water does the best job. If the spill is really bad, I soak a cloth in b.s. and water and leave it on overnight. It always seems to work. I would never go back to the old drip pans!

When I have a spill that regular cleaner won't remove I use a razor blade, very carefully. So far after 3 years it has not caused any problems.

My stovetop is black and unforgiving. When it's cooled down I spray lightly with Simple Orange, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then scrub with a glasstop scrubber I got at Ace. Wipe off with clean damp dishcloth and dry with one of those cloths made to clean glass. For real crud I use Earth Brite, a paste I got from QVC (I think) and/or good old razor blade.

It's still sparkles after a year.

Cleaning a dried on mess on a smooth stove surface is easy. Simply set soaking wet paper towels on the mess and walk away. Later, when you come back, they have been soaked clean.
