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!

I have a scratch on the top of my ceramic stovetop. How can I repair it?


Instructions for repairing scratches on ceramic cooktop
Things You'll Need:
  • Nonabrasive cleaner
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Cloth
  • Razor scraper
  • Ceramic crème
  • Sponge or cloth(s)
  1. 1 Clean the cooktop with a nonabrasive cleaner, such as a glass cleaner or warm water mixed with a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Wipe with a clean, soft cloth.
  2. 2 Use your fingernail or the flat edge of a razor scraper to remove any raised surfaces on the scratch.
  3. 3 Apply a ceramic repair crème, available at most hardware or home repair stores, to the scratched area. Work in gently with a soft cloth or sponge.
  4. 4 Allow the crème to sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Wipe away with a clean, damp, soft cloth.
  5. 5 Repeat as necessary until the scratch is no longer visible.

Good morning we are staying in a house of friends who are on holiday. I would like to clean the Bosch Ceran top but I am not sure which cleaning stuff I can use. Is the use of CIF creamer allowed with a...


Harry -
I would first see if your friend has a special ceramic cleaner in his or her cleaning supplies cupboard. If you can't find a ceramic cleaner, the best thing you can do is use hot water to clean the surface. All-purpose cleaners (like Cif) can damage the ceramic glass so it's best to avoid using them.
Also, look in your friend's cleaning supplies cupboard for a metal razor scraper. Use the razor scraper to scrape off any burnt-on food or spills. Do this by holding the scraper at approximately a 30 degrees angle to the cooktop while wearing an oven mitt to protect your hands. If no scraper is available, don't resort to a knife or abrasive sponge as these could damage the ceramic glass.
When the cooking surface is cool, apply a few dabs of the ceramic cleaner (if you found it) in each burner area and work the cleaning cream over the cooktop surface with a damp paper towel. Then wipe down with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
If no ceramic glass cleaner is available, it is sufficient to wipe down with hot water and a soft sponge. Never use abrasive sponges or scouring pads on ceramic glass cooktops. Also watch out for corrosive cleaners such as over sprays, cleaners containing chlorine or ammonia and stain removers - these will just further damage the surface.

An awesome product that you spray on and let sit overnight. then simply wash it off. (Non Toxic / Non corrosive) No gloves required but does have an odd odor so I would let it soak outside. Heavy accumulations may require a second treatment.

Also great on shower heads. Remove it.. place it in a glass overnight and then re-install the next moring. Does not discolor anything. Ditto for shower enclosures and tile. Why this product is not in great demand is a mystery.

THIS WILL Clean it.

There are stains in between the glass on the door. How can I remove and clean this?


Hello :

Disassembling the door yourself will void the warranty and may require a service technician to repair any damage or put the door back together. It is recommended that a service technician complete this for you. It is not recommended that you disassemble the door yourself.

Things You Will Need:
Glass cleaner
Soft cloths
Glass stovetop cleaner
Steps to Remove the Glass:
Make an appointment with a service technician to remove the glass from the door.
Use glass cleaner to remove as much of the debris as possible.
For tougher stains and food debris, use a glass stovetop cleaner to aid with removal.
Once the stains and debris are removed, allow the service technician to reassemble the door.
 
Cleaning Through the Door Vents:

When the glass cannot be removed or is no longer covered by the warranty, there are other, more creative, ways that can be used to clean it.

Things You Will Need:
Long handled cleaner
Bottle brush
Yardstick/ruler wrapped in cloth
Bent hanger wrapped in cloth
Dryer vent brush
Glass cleaner
Soft cloths/towels/long socks
Duct tape (optional)
Steps to Clean Between the Glass:
Some Microwave ovens have small vents along the bottom or top of the door. These vents go in between the glass (and are likely part of the problem with other materials getting in there as well). By inserting a towel on a long-handled stick, you can gently clean between the glass without disassembling the door.First, find the vents on the door if you have them.
It may be easier to remove the door from the hinges and lay it flat on the floor. Many microwave oven doors simply lift right off of the hinges, others will require loosening a few screws first. Replacing the door should be easy to do at the end of the cleaning and will not void the warranty.
Start by choosing a long-handled cleaning tool. There are a variety of options available, so be creative.
Secure a towel or soft cloth (long socks work well) to the handle with duct tape or other strong tape. Make sure it’s well fastened so it doesn’t come off and become stuck in the door.
Moisten the towel or soft cloth with the window cleaner or other cleaning product.
Insert the cleaning tool through the vents.
Move the cloth back and forth to remove the debris from between the glass.
Remove the cloth.
Repeat with a clean cloth until all of the debris is gone.
Replace the door on the oven and enjoy the clear, clean view.

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .
