Cooktopsare in many homes and are a preferred kitchen appliance to many home owners. The Cook in the kitchen can appreciate the stylish look of a sleek radiant smooth top Cooktop . Many invest top dollar to have stainless steel appliances including the following: Refrigerator, Dishwasher and Compactor. Moreover, having a sharp looking Cooktop addition only compliments the style and design of any high end kitchen. Maintainence and care of such an essential attractive appliance such as a cooktop is important. Here is the best way to fix scratches on your Radiant Smooth top Cooktop: Step 1 - Prepare your Cooktop by cleaning the surface*Make sure the surface is cooled* Use a damp rag first and sweep of crumbs and food stuff. Use your favorite cleaner and rinse completely. Careful not to get moisture around knobs or switches. Dry off surface.
Step 2 -- Work on the scratch area Run the sharp edge of a razor over the scratch around 3x and this will aid in smoothing out any raised ruff edges. Apply gentle pressure to the cooktop scratch area.
Step 3 - Apply A Cooktop Cleaner Use a few drops of cooktop cleaner to the scratch area. Use a sponge to rub in cleaner. Use circular motions to allow scratch to absorb product. Run the razor edge over scratch again making sure not to apply to much pressure.

A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

When you dont replace the ceramic top that ios cracked could cause issues in your circuit board. The best thing t do is buy a new stove. The parts nad labor along is going to cost you about the same price as a new one.
Sorry - this is not an answer but a question. Did you get your problem resolved. We just purchased a induction stove & oven and are having the same problem you described. Could you let me know what happened.
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!
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!
