SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: cleaning the cast iron grates and griddle

Try This....
Place the grates in a sink of hot, soapy water and let soak for 15-20 minutes. For tougher stains, add a cup of sudsy ammonia to the water. Make sure grates are thoroughly dried after each cleaning. After the cleaning process, Lightly coat the bottom of the grates with a cooking spray and then blotting them dry.
Or
If you self clean the oven on occasion, put them in the oven when running the self clean cycle.

glass cleaner WITH ammonia, and a small toothbrush works well. mop up with an old washcloth, rinsing often. for pieces which have gummy residue, and which can be removed to the sink for soap and water finsing afterwards, try GooGone.

SOURCE: Cast iron grey grates are hard to clean

Don't use oven cleaner! It isn't recommended by GE. Their book explicitly says to put the grates in a plastic garbage bag and pour a some ammonia into the bag. Tie the bag tightly so all the gas stays inside. Put in a garage in case it leaks because it can smell bad. Wait 24 hours and the stains will come off with a hose and some light rubbing. I didn't believe it at first but it works great! My wife loves our 'like new' oven.

I have a gas cook stove. I would like to know how i can clean the burner grates. Please tell me something.


Place them in the oven on self clean or if you do not have the setting, place all the parts into a black trash bag, spray oven cleaner on the surfaces and place the trash bag in the sun for a few hours. Rinse and spot clean the balance. This also works for re-seasoning cast iron pans
(the bag thing). You may need a few applications for the pans....

How to clean grates on kenmore stove


I'm assuming it's for a gas stove... and we're talking about the grates on top. If so, check to see the texture of the part that touches the stove. If it's rough, like cast iron, Use a product like Gas Grate Cleaner. (sells at most stores. Grey, white, black and red container, looks like Comet.) If it's smooth underneath, put it in the dishwasher! Or soak it in the sink. Or, you can use the gas grate cleaner as well.

Inside racks? That Cleaner works awesome on them too.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
