    My teapot (metal) has left a white residue/ring on the burner that we use all the time on our glass stove top. There are also spots on the other burners that I can't remove with stove top cleaner. Is there a way to clean all this off, even after years?

      When we built our home way back in 1978, I got a Jenn-Air range with white glass/ceramic cooktop. I always had very good results with Bon Ami, which is quite reasonably priced, especially compared to many of the products :recommended

      I use a razor blade with a handle, just lightly go over the stains, and it comes off. Hasn't hurt my stove at all.

    I also have a glass top range and when there is food spillage that has hardened or melted plastic, I use a razor blade scraper. It doesn't hurt the stove top and clean it off instantly.

      I've done that, too, Linda and I found it quick and efficient. I haven't had as much luck with baking soda as others seem; maybe I need to leave it on longer.

    A friend scratched my glass top and it looks terrible, even when completely clean. I hate it. Wish I had run the gas line.
