Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

We have a maytag ceran cermaic top cooking stove with large black stain that seems to be spreading like cancer over one of the "elements". We have tried a couple different over-the-counter products to clean this up and nothing has worked. We don't feel that it is food related since we are prompt about cleaning up spills. Does anyone know what could have caused this and do you have any recommendations. We are in a rental house and do not want to have to replace the stove. Thanks.

Try using the regular ceramic cooktop cleaner, apply and clean as you werewaxing a car, in samll circular motions, any stubbourn stains should be able to be removed by re-applying creme and scraping with razor blade( using flat side down not corners of razor)

Ceramic cooktop cleaning tips - especially for 2-in difficult-to-remove stain:
Best Idea: "Cerama Bryte" + plastic scrubbie
Cerama Bryte is specifically designed for this cooktop, works on stains, avail at Hardware Stores.

Other ceramic cooktop tips:
1. "Soft Scrub" plasic scrubbie
2. Comet cleanser + sponge
3. Single-edge razor blade held at 45-degree angle - scrapes off material
4. "Cook Top" cleaner (WalMart) + Mr. Clean "Magic Eraser" abrasive pad
5. baking soda on damp sponge
6. soak stain for awhile with Formula 409, Fantastic, or citrus degreaser ("Orange Clean")
7. ammonia + water - in a 1:1 solution
8. Easy Off oven cleaner - it foams on the stain and does the work for you - let it sit 20 min.
9. the nuclear option:
Cerama Bryte under a plastic scrubbie under an orbital sander with sandpaper removed
(just the pad down on top of the scrubbie), after pre-soaking in Citrus Degreaser.
The sander is a power tool which only saves your joints, and speeds up the chore.

What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

Use DeBruce Polish, we use it on all of our stainless steel AND ceramic cook tops- we also use Debruce Polish on all of our windows. We used Debruce to remove permanant marker from an enameled surface. This stuff is great! We find them at debrucepolish.com. Debruce is non-toxic and odorless- you will love it.

Cast iron pans


Cast iron cookware is NOT recommended due to the weight and the potential damage it can cause to the glass top surface. There's nothing better than a good old-fashioned cast iron skillet that's been broken in over a number of years of use, but they are better suited for gas ranges rather than electric. I hate it. I have several cast iron skillets that I only use on the outdoor grill, because I currently own a glass top electric range.

Aluminum bottom pans and copper bottom pans heat well, but can leave metal transfer marks on the cook top surface. If the marks are cleaned after use with an approved stove top cleaner, you shouldn't have any problem retaining the condition of the glass surface, however. Stainless Steel seems to offer good resistance to metal transfer, but takes a little longer to heat than aluminum or copper. So...you have somewhat of a trade off. Baked enamel cookware seems to be the best recommendation because it heats wells and causes the least amount of damage to your glass top surface.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the bottom of your cookware is FLAT. If your pans are warped or bowed, this can cause uneven heat transfer on the heating elements and potentially cause the cook top to crack. Most manufacturers will not replace the top if it still under warranty if it is determined that your cookware caused the problem.

A little over kill, but I hope this helps you.
