I have a glass top stovetop. How can I buff out or polish scratches?

by Sharlene
My glass cooktop is now dull in places where I scrubbed to clean off burnt food. How can I return the top to a polished, glossy finish? Any ideas to make it better?

    Try some Weiman Cooktop Glass Cleaner. I use a straight edge razor to clean the burnt food off, then wipe off with a wet rag, then put the Weiman on top and buff it out. I'm not sure if it will get rid of the scratches completely.

    Hi. I use a product called earth bright. It takes off the burned off stuff but leaves the stovetop looking like new. I also use it for my stainless pans. You do have to hand dry them or it will spot

    Hi! Try Turtle wax polishing compound. It works for removing small scratches from car paint and it worked on my cooktop too!

    Of course if the scratches are too deep, it will not remove them but it got my black cooktop to shine again! Of course, you will have to supply the elbow grease!

    Tip: If you're in a hurry and have no time to clean the cooktop, a blast of Pledge does the trick to have it shine like a mirror. First remove the cooked on food though!

    I scrub my glass top with baking soda on a damp surface (mist it first). I sprinkle it on when the surface is cool and damp, let it dry and then scrub it with a microfiber cloth. It looks great!
