Regular spill stain problems

Can anyone recommend a good solution to remove water spill stains from the cooktop? I don't seem to have the same problem with oil stains, and I've tried almost every cleaning solution out there but it seems to keep on setting at every spill. Would appreciate any info. Thanks.

Youre gonna hit me... Soak it with lemon juice then clean with water. And next time you gotta clean metals, use vinegar+salt or sugar + olive
oil.

How do i clean my cooktop on a whirlpool 465


Light Cleaning
  • Clean your CERAN cooktop after every use. To remove simple spills, wait for the surface to cool before beginning the cleaning process. Pour a small amount of cleaning cream on a damp paper towel and wipe the cooktop surface until the soil and cream are no longer visible. The cleaning cream will leave a protective finish, which will preclude scratches and other types of damage.
  • Heavy Cleaning
  • Wear a heavy oven mitt to remove burnt foods or liquids while the cooktop is still warm. Use the metal razor scraper to remove the substances that are stuck to the cooktop surface. Once the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel to spread a small amount of cleaning cream over the entire cooktop surface and wipe it thoroughly until the cream is no longer visible. Rinse the cooktop with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
  • Cleaning Melted Substances
  • Remove melted plastic, foil or other kitchen products immediately using the metal razor scraper. Spills containing sugar, such as ketchup, tomato sauce, syrup or pudding, must also be removed with the metal scraper at once. It is best to remove these substances while the burner is still hot. Once the melted substance has been removed and the cooktop has cooled, use a damp paper towel and cleaning cream to complete the cleaning process. To protect your hands, remember to wear a thick oven mitt when cleaning the hot cooktop.
  • Tips
  • Scratch marks resulting from daily use will not interfere with the performance of your cooktop. Pots and pans with flat bottoms and those that cover the entire burner surface are recommended for use on your CERAN cooktop.
  • Warnings
  • Spills containing sugar may permanently damage your cooktop unless the substance is removed immediately. Use only the recommended cleaning products on your CERAN cooktop to protect it from damage. Do not use scouring pads, plastic coated sponges or abrasive products of any type. Do not use oven spray or any other type of cleaner containing ammonia or chlorine. Clean all spills thoroughly before using your cooktop again.

    How do I clean my new electric Jenn-air cooktop with its glass top? Do I need a special cleaner for the glass?


  • Step 1 Wipe up spills as soon as they happen with a clean dry towel. According to the Jenn-Air website, for glass top cooking surfaces, you should do this even if it is hot since it will be harder to clean up later. Be careful not to get burned.
  • Step 2 Use a cooktop cleaner once it is cool. You can also use dishwashing detergent and water or just a baking soda paste (made with water).
  • Step 3 Apply the cleaner to a sponge, cloth or paper towel. For more stubborn stains, you can use a non-abrasive or "scratchless" pad.
  • Step 4 Rub the soiled areas until clean. Rinse well, especially if you used the baking soda paste as that can leave a residue.
  • Step 5 Use a razor blade for burned on and crusty stains that will not come off using the previous methods. Jenn-Air states to hold it at a 30-degree angle to carefully remove the stain.

  • Or you can use this on the link below.

    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.

    Can't get GE profile cooktop clean


    the problem is you didn't clean the unit before you used it the first time w/ the ceramabrite wax. the glass on your cooktop is porous and unless you seal it before ever using whatever went into the pores originally will always be in the pores and no amount of cleaner will get it out.

    Have you tried using a razor blade scraper. Also I have found Ceramabrite cooktop cleaner to be a very good product. There is also a less abrasive scouring pad available specifically for glass cooktops.

    Cleaning glass cooktop surface


    I used Mr. Clean multi-surface and the green, back side of the sponge. Turned on a light to show visible stains better, and scrubbed away. It didn't scratch the glass and got it out quick. Hope this helps.
