How to remove burnt melted heat resistant glove from top of appliance?

Answered

I was using a rotisserie and forgot a pair of heat resistant gloves on top. Not sure if it was latex or rubber. Anyway, it really burnt on there good. I looked on line, and tried to call many companies that had products that claimed would take burnt rubber off of cars. One gentleman told me his product would not work but gave me suggestions, ice, wd40, heat it up and use scrapers. None of those things have worked so far. I managed to get some off but most of it is still there and you can see. It is a great appliance and have used it quite often. Can anyone please help me. Thank you so much.

    Try using a bug and tar remover from the auto parts store. Carburetor cleaner may also work. Finally try using a propane torch to soften it up so you can scrape it off. Use the heat from the torch and not the direct flame. Also open windows to air out the fumes.

      A heat gun is way safer than a propane torch. I'm shocked anyone would suggest such a thing! A heat gun!

    As a temporary measure, purchase a silicone mat and put it over the entire top of the little oven. These are often sold as baking sheets, but can be used just as readily as countertop protectors, and can be cut with scissors to size.

  • You could try acetone, but I am no to sure if it will take the paint of the appliance. Maybe try a concealed area first.

    Great suggestions from everyone. One more technique that might work is to very carefully scrape it with a single edge razor blade stood up on edge. You will need to use something to keep the area lubricated to reduce the chances of scratching (soap and water, WS-40, etc.). Definitely try it on an unseen area first such as the back or bottom.

    I would and have used a flat blade razor paint scraper. The kind that you use on window panes to get old paint off when cleaning up paint. I have used it on my ceramic cook top without scratching it. You have to do it slowly. Also before doing that try a gentle abrasive like "Barkeeper Best Friend". I find that works the best and then try the razor blade. Best wishes and good luck.

    This is probably another thing that won't work but when everything else fails, I get out the Awesome and spray it on, let it set and wipe it off. I purchase it at the Dollar Tree for $1.00. I would like to add though that your rotisserie is pretty dangerous if the top gets that HOT! If and when you replace it, check that out. In the meantime, if the Awesome doesn't work, I would paint it with some appliance paint. Good Luck!

    Have you tried the works toilet bowl cleaner? Its a long shot along with a magic eraser but ya never know. Worst case scenario after serious scraping you can repaint the stove.

    I know this may not seem strong enough, but I'd pour on a bunch of baking soda, mist it so it is damp, and let it sit for a few hours. I bet you'll be able to get a lot more off after that! It has cleaned anything cooked on the top of my stove - like miraculously so!

    I would definitely try a Magic Eraser! That thing works wonders.

    I would also try making a paste with boiling hot water and baking soda and lightly scrubbing it with a scrubbing sponge.

    Acetone from Lowes or Home Depot not nail polish remover should work with a plastic scraper. You may have to cover the top with a silicone mat because anything you try will probably take the paint off the appliance. Rustoleum makes a high heat paint, but I think the mat would look better

    Susan Prendergast A heat gun would work but not everyone has one. A lot have a propane torch or a neighbor or friend has one.
