How to clean a stove top made of glass is not hard at all, as some people think. I grew up with a glass stove top, and after living in a couple of different rental apartments early in my marriage, and having the stoves with drip pans on top, I happen to much prefer glass tops. The last two stoves my husband and I have bought, I picked the glass tops. To me they are so much easier to keep clean than trying to clean the ones with drip pans, and trying to get all the debris that falls down inside. That is just my opinion, and each of course is entitled to their own. I do know lots of friends who just prefer cooking with gas, but I love my glass top stove.
My first glass top stove came with a special little bottle of cleanser that promised not to scratch the top. It was a tiny little bottle that came with a reorder slip, and I thought that was the only way to clean it, but I found that Softscrub from the grocery worked great and was not too expensive. However, one day when I ran out and needed to clean some burnt on “gunk,” I reached for some baking soda, and lo and behold, it worked great and did not scratch my stove!
Let me show you how great it works.
This lovely cooked on stain was after making a pancakes, bacon and eggs dinner.
Sprinkle the baking soda on the stain.
Then use a wet wash rag and some elbow grease.
Voila! The baking soda gives just enough abrasive to get the job done. Rinse, dry and you’re done.
This is what it looked like when I was done scrubbing!
Baking soda is sooooooo inexpensive, and a little sprinkle will do a great job cleaning your glass topped stove!
