How to Clean a Black Stovetop

MindyAlisa HowardCarol


We recently got a new black and stainless stove. I was so excited, until the first time a pan boiled over onto the stovetops. Since then there have been other accidents that haven't cleaned up very well and left what seems to be baked on splatters. I've tried the rough side of a kitchen sponge, spray cleaner with sponge and/or cloth. Was sure that my Norwex Enviro cloth would do the trick, but it didn't. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Attached is a photo which shows one of the spots (above reflection from hood lights).

    Try using the cleaner for glass top stoves with a micro fiber cloth.

    We have a similar stove. You must use the ceramic smooth top cleaner. We got a free bottle with our stove. If you use anything rough it will scratch the surface. Make sure the stove top cools down completely before you clean

    I have put a heavy layer of the glass top cleaner over the mess, put a wet paper towel over that, then a piece of plastic wrap. Let sit overnight and clean with magic eraser in morning.
