    Looks to me like you take a kitchen towel and put it hot water-squeeze it out.--put baking soda on the stove top and then put the towel over it and let it set for say 15 -- 20 minutes after that just scrub with towel and should come clean.

    This is for Linda M. Believe it or not...... for baked on "stuff" on your stove, you use a single edge razor blade. ( not an old one, it will scratch) when I bought my stove, that's what the book said. I have never had a problem, or scratches. The baked

    Thanks, all, about the razor blade - will try. However, I think mine are in the stages of Suzette's evaluation--"the baked on tuff will get worse, the more you cook on it!"

      Linda M Just make sure when you use the razor you have it flat and go back and forth in a straight line. I found a cheap razor holder at the dollar store that I use. When I first

    The single-edged razor blade worked like a charm, Concetta!! I was standing there FOREVER, but it finally chipped off (esp. after the baking soda soak). I'll try the 409 maintenance also along with the blade too. Thanks.

    Have used the creams, the razor blade trick, the baking soda, etc etc. New stovetop was crap from the very start...4 sisters/friends just use hot soapy water on theirs and theirs clean up fine/ newlike/shiney!.

    I have the same stove, too. I have been using Mr. Clean white sponges, but I like this idea much better. Will try next time! Thanks so much.

    I read on here a long time ago about using baking soda and peroxide as a cleaning agent. I changed it around a little bit.. I added salt to be the abrasive, I pour a little salt on the stove, add some baking soda and water enough to make a paste then get

    For those who know Pampered Chef, the scraper that comes with all the stoneware works like a charm, and way safer than a razor blade, to scrape off baked-on gunk!
