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.

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.

    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.

    Trying to remove stains around the gas unit where temp is the hottest.

    have you tried cooktop cleaner? this seams to work pretty good at getting stains out of stainless steal. (You know...cooktop cleaner is really just car wax if you had some try this on a little area and see how it works and if you like the results...there you go.) let me know what you think. But like i said always do a test point before doing the whole surface.

    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.
