Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

There are burnt on grease stains on my new ceramic glass kitchenaid cooktop on one burner. I've tried cooktop magic and it did remove some, but not all, stains. A razor was recommended to remove the stains, but I am afraid that it will scratch the surface. I was told that this will not scratch it.

    Thank you for your suggestion. It has proven to be a successful one. I would like to know if I can ruin the round silver coils that mark the range if I use the razor to clean up the burnt grease on them. Thank you

    I have a new kitchenaid oven and the glass on the inside of the door needs to be cleaned. The instruction booklet addresses cleaning the outside of the door, but not the inside, except, ofcourse, to use the self cleaning mode. At this point, the entire oven does not need cleaning, but can I use a glass cleaner on the inside door, or just soap and water. I don't want to ruin anything.Thank you. Your suggestions so far for different problems have proven to be very successful.

    Do you think that I can use Windex or Glass Plus?

Use the razor push only in one direction this will remove the stain. Ceran is a very resiliant material and you will not scratch it but if you leave gunk on the burner and repeatedly cook on it the stain will become permanant and you also risk pitting the glass. Pitting is pock marks in the glass that are permanant. Pitting is most commonly produced when starch or sugars are left on a burner but is possible with other spills. Good Luck.

    I am not clear but I think you mean the circles that mark the burners all part of the glass top if this is correct then yes you can use the same process to clean it. Glad I could help and thank you for the rating.

  • diane trott Jan 11, 2009

    you can use what you choose to clean it as long as you rinse toroughly. Chemicals and heat do not always cooperate! if the stains on the glass are stubborn use your razor blade maybe a non abrasive cleanser like soft scrub. I work in an appliance store but I clean houses on my days off so your questions are right up my alleys! Thank you, and if there is anything else I will do my best to help!

  • diane trott Jan 11, 2009

    sure as long as you rinse it well.

Hi, We have MAYTAG schott ceran flexchoice glass cooking top. Even after cleaning it with a ceramic glass top cleaner,stains are remaining on it. Can u please suggest what is the best way to clean it .


Sudha3025 -
Sorry to hear you're having trouble getting your cooktop clean.
You mention you are using a glass-ceramic cleaner but I would also suggest scrapping the stains with a NEW metal razor scraper. A cooktop scraper is similar to one you would use to scrape paint off your windowpanes at home and you can typically find them at a hardware store. The razor won't damage the surface like other abrasive sponges might. For best results, hold the scraper at approximately a 30 degree angle to the cooktop and protect your hands by wearing an oven mitt.
Also try using a Wieman sponge in conjunction with the cleaner on those stubborn stains.
As always, try to clean up spills, especially sugary ones, immediately when they happen, or get them away from the hot burner area and clean after every use.
Hope this is helpful!

Burnt on stains on the inside glass door of my kitchenaid oven


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

Cleaning glass cooktop


Hi, Any good glass/ceramic cooktop cleaner will do the job. Any grease spots or burned food spots can be scraped off with a razor scraper ( just keep it flat ) Use a couple of paper towels and put a dime sized drop of the cleaner on each burner and with a circular motion buff the top like you would wax a car, when cleaned up, flip the towels over and buff to a shine. I don't endorse any products but there are some that contain everything you need, cleaner , scraper, cloth like Ceramabrite. They can be found at most grocery, diy and some hardware stores. Good Luck!

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


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!

I used kitchenaid cooktop cleaner but cannot remove burnt on stains. what do I use? This is a brand new cooktop-ceramic glass


make sure you are using the cleaner properly.
best way is to put it on like you would wax a car.
put on a heavy coating of cleaner and then let it dry, once it is fully dry, then use a wet towel and wipe it off, then dry with another towel and polish it to a shine. this should allow the stain to be absorbed into the cleaner and then will leave a "wax" on the surface to help prevent any future stains from happening.
if this doesnt work, then put on more cleaner and lay a wet paper towel over the stained area and cleaner. this will allow the cleaner to dry slower and should help to remove any stains.
by the way not all stains will come off the first or second cleaning.
just keep trying and the stain will come off. and if you get a spill again, wipe it off as soon as you can, even if the glass top is hot, it will help.

Soup boiked over on stove top


I had some luck removing food and other stains with the new Vielda Glass Ceramic Scrung (its a sponge)

"
"Special scour sponge for cleaning glass ceramic cook tops without scratching. Eliminates burnt-in stains and greasy dirt film. Removes grease and loose dirt particles. Microfibre side will create a streak free finish."

I found mine at Walmart. It was a little pricey but if you just use the sponge for the stovetop then it will last a very long time.

Hope this helps.
