WalMart, The Home Depot and Amazon offer products for cleaning glass cooktops. Of the cleaners available in these stores, About.com recommends Whirlpool Afresh and Weiman glass cooktop cleaners as the most effective. They clean ordinary grime and dissolve food spills that burn onto the cooktop and become difficult to remove.Continue Reading
Weiman manufacturers several products and is less expensive than some of the other products, according to About.com. The cleaning cream is a green cleaning product that works best with non-abrasive cleaning pads. It helps to remove burnt-on foods and provides a protective coating for the cooktop. Weiman also produces premoistened wipes. While they are less effective at deep cleaning than the cleaning cream, they are a good option for routine cleaning.
Whirlpool Afresh, available through Amazon, is comparable to Weiman cleaner, reports About.com. It provides effective cleaning of stains and prevents future stains with its built-in protective coating. However, as of 2015, Whirlpool's cooktop cleaner is significantly more expensive than its counterpart, produced by Weiman.
While Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaner is another option, About.com's reviewer found it less effective than either Weiman or Afresh cleaners. It removes dirt and grime but is ineffective against rings from pans or burnt-on food. As of 2015, it is more expensive than the Weiman cream.Learn more about Ovens & Ranges
