How to clean Ceramic / Glass Cooktop Stoves

Glass ceramic stove tops are asthetic, chiny  clean looking, and for the most part easy to clean. These tips will help keep the smooth stove top on your electric range looking great.

Daily Cleaning and Care

Keeping your ceramic stove top looking its best starts with general, daily cleaning. Spills should be wiped up immediately, and the stove top should be cleaned after each cooking session using a soft cloth (or cleaning pad specifically made for ceramic stove tops) and the cleaner of your choice. There are products on the market specifically for ceramic stove tops, but other widely available products, such as Soft Scrub, or even regular dishwashing liquid, are also perfect for this job. I personally prefer to use a product manufactured by Spray Nine Corporation called " Glass & Stainless Steel Cleaner" on my stovetop and sides.  Simply wait until the stove top cools completely, then apply the cleaner and clean up any spills or grease that accumulated during your cooking session. Rinse the product off with a clean, damp sponge or cloth, and let it dry. Doing this daily will ensure that the stove top stays looking great.

Grime never pays

Of course, life doesn't always allow for daily cleaning of the stove. After a few cooking sessions, dried on food and grease may be covering your stove top. When this happens, the best course of action is to wipe the stove top down with whatever cleaner you usually use, and let the cleaner sit for a few minutes. Let the cleaner and the water loosen up any stubborn food and grime, then go back with a sponge and wash and rinse the way you usually would.

Stubborn, cooked-on accumulated yuck

If some of the accumulated grime just won't budge after letting the cleaning products sit for a while, you'll need to be more aggressive. The tool of choice here is a straight-edged razor blade in a safety holder (available here or at any hardware store). Hold the scraper at a 30 degree angle to the cooked on grime, and started gently working away at it. Any cooked on messes should come up fairly easily with the razor/scraper. After you have all of the solids up, go over the whole thing with your preferred stove cleaner, and your stove top will look like new. Never use a straight edge blade by itself for the obvious reasons.

Let the shine in

If your once-shiny stove top is looking dull, even after cleaning with your usual stove cleaner, it means you have a stubborn grease buildup. Spray Nine "Glass & Stainless Steel Cleaner"does a great job and is half the price of the ceramic specialty cleaners out there.
