What Are Some Tips for Cleaning a Glass Stove?

To clean a glass stove, use a cleaning product specifically made for glass stove tops, baking soda or a mixture of vinegar or lemon juice and warm water. While wiping up food spills immediately can reduce the time it takes to clean a glass stove top, allow the stove top to cool completely before attempting to clean it.

To remove baked-on food spills, apply a glass stove top cleaner to the spill, and use a damp cloth or paper towel to remove. Removing sticky or sugary food spills may require the use of a stove top scraper or a razor blade. In addition, you may have to apply stove top cleaner multiple times to completely remove certain types of spills.

To polish a glass stove top, use a dry cloth to remove loose debris. Wiping the glass surface with a microfiber cloth helps to increase shine. However, avoid pressing down too hard on the glass surface as the surface can crack.

Regularly cleaning and polishing a glass stove top helps to retain its beauty and functionality. To prevent scratching the glass surface, avoid using cast iron, ceramic or stoneware pots and pans. Instead, use stainless steel, aluminum or carbon steel cookware with flat bottoms.
