How to remove burnt grease, fix lightly scratched black stovetop?

I am trying to remove a very recent Burnt Grease from my Black stove top. While trying using Lysol Cleaner, Windex, Soap & Water and a scratch pad that is not very abrasive, I dulled and lightly scratched part of the area where the burnt grease is on. What effective products can I use to remove the burnt grease, and repolish the area with the lightly dulled sctatched surface?

Hi, I assume we are talking about a flat glass top. First the bad news. using any abrasives will permanently scratch the glass hence the dull spot. You can however make it look a little better. Grease spots and the like can be removed with a flat razor blade scraper which needs to be held flat to avoid the corners making scratches. Use any good glass/ceramic cooktop cleaner ( which is the ONLY cleaner you should ever use ) (available in your local grocery diy store and some hardware stores). The cleaner is a thick liquid, put about a dime size drop on each burner area and use a paper towel to buff out the finish like waxing a car. Once it looks clean flip your paper towel over and shine the top to like new. Good Luck!

There is this white stuff sold for glass-top stoves. I presume it is good old iron cleaner, a very mild cleaner/polish. Also consider toothpaste.

How can I clean the black cooktop grids?


put in kitchen sink with hot hot water over night, with dish washing liquid. preferbly when kitchen is not being used. (After dinner time) drain then spray with mr muscle oven cleaner give it about an hour, then scrub the **** out of them with a stainless steel goldilocks. Rinse then soak in hot water again for 20 minutes then drip dry. After use when cooking always clean any mess left behind. Wipe down so it is easier for you to wash when needed.

I have discoloration on glass top stove what to do


They sell cleaners for glasstop stoves. Often I find I can use baking soda and lemon juice mixed together to form a stiff paste and use a non abrasive pad (like what you use on non stick pans) and lots of elbow grease... but not TOO much pressure... If that does'nt do it, try the cleaner they make for it. I have had my stove for quite a while now- overall it's stayed fairly clean with the home remedy

I cannot get my burners on my stainless steel gas stove top clean


What I would try. Assuming the "burners" means the cast iron assemblies on top of the stainless steel, remove them to an area outside. Perhaps on a piece of plywood, and clean them with oven cleaner. Grease may drip off them, so a deck or driveway are unacceptable. Wear gloves and watch splatters. Wash thoroughly with fresh water before reusing. Beware. Caustic chemicals can discolor stainless

Cant get food stains removed from top of stove i use a special cleaner and a special scrub and it still doesnt come off. it can be any kind of stain. the new stove tops are very hard to clean. any help...


I recommend a product called of all things "barkeepers friend". It comes in a can with holes in the top to sprinkle the powder out of.

Moisten the stubborn area and sprinkle this product on the stain then add enough water to make a paste. Make sure the paste covers the entire stain. LET IT SIT FOR AT LEAST TEN MINUTES. Then rub with a wet cloth. It always works for me and I have a black stove.

DeBruce Polish should remove those types of problems and also render the surface more "Cleanable". This stuff really works on glass anomalies.

Can't remove burnt milk from right burner on stovetop?


I'm happy to say burnt milk can be removed with a combination of cerama bryte and let sit for one hour and then lots o elbow grease hard rubbling with also applying Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works very well but you have to still rub alot to get it safely scratch-free removed.

Cleaning area around burners


Try regular oven cleaner (not the overnight kind) . This will work if there are no aluminum or painted parts. Don't do this if the instruction manuel says not to.

Whirlpool Oven, Ceran stove top


I want to say that since I posted my original problem with black spots appearing on the Schott Ceran top, I took pictures of the top and attached them to a complaint sent to Maytag. Approximately 3 days later, a Maytag representative phoned and offered a brand new top-basically stating that there is a fault with the tops. They would not pay for the labor to replace the top. My husband downloaded the instructions from Maytag website and installed it himself. These spots actually appear from within the surface and are not the result of a boil over, etc. The spots on my burner grew to the width of the burner. If you search the internet, you will see many others with the same problem with the Schott Ceran tops. I will never buy another!
