How to Clean a Glass Top Stove

Published
June 7, 2020

Glass stoves are one of the most popular types of kitchen cookers available today. Sleek, modern and incredibly stylish, these stove tops provide homeowners with the major benefit of a cleaner and less messy cooking set-up. Not only that, glass top stoves are free from drip pans or burner grates — the standard parts of a traditional cooking stove that can be quite difficult to clean and maintain. But while glass top stoves are easier to tidy up compared to other cookers, they still aren’t necessarily free from stains and splatters when cooking. 

In this article, we’ll teach you how to bring back the shine of your glass top stove with a complete step-by-step guide that’s easy to follow and do:

5 Glass Top Stove Cleaning Basics

  1. Clean the surface while cool - Before even cleaning the top stove, always remember to turn off the cooker and let the surface cool for a few minutes.
  2. Use gentle cleaning solutions - There’s no more need for you to bring in tough cleaning measures and solutions when tidying up a glass top stove. Instead, you can go the all-natural route to avoid damaging the surface with harsh ingredients.
  3. Follow the stove’s cleaning instructions - If you want to be sure on the best type of cleaning materials to use for the stove, make sure to refer to the user manual or its online care instructions.
  4. Use soft cleaning tools -  While the idea of using hard-bristled cleaning materials to remove stains easily might be extra tempting, it’s generally recommended to use softer tools instead. From microfiber cloths to soft sponges, using gentler tools will aid in preventing scratches or chippings when cleaning the top stove’s surface.

How to Deep Clean Glass Top Stove

Materials Needed:

  • Baking soda
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Clean towel
  • Clean sink basin
  • Hot water
  • Microfiber cloths

Step-by-Step Cleaning Guide

  1. After making sure the glass stovetop is cool, apply white vinegar onto the surface by spritzing it from a spray bottle.
  2. Sprinkle a copious amount of baking soda over the vinegar solution.
  3. Get the clean towel and dip it in the hot water. Squeeze the fabric thoroughly to wring out excess liquid.
  4. Place the towel over the baking soda and vinegar combination on the surface.
  5. Let the entire set-up sit for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Afterwards, remove the towel and wipe away the baking soda and vinegar from the surface using the microfiber cloth.
  7. Spritz more vinegar all over the surface again to remove any additional blemishes. Use a new microfiber cloth to wipe away stains.
  8. If there are still stains visible, repeat the whole process until they are completely gone.

How to Clean Glass Top Stove Using a Razor Blade

If you’re looking to remove tough stains on the glass stovetop’s surface, you might be interested in using a razor blade to do the trick. However, when doing the entire process, each step must be carried out carefully to avoid scratches and damages.

Materials Needed:

  • Razor blade
  • Scraper tool
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Microfiber cloth

Step-by-Step Cleaning Guide

  1. Before even using this cleaning technique, make sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions in the user manual. If the manual discourages this cleaning process when removing stains, drop the tool right away and turn to traditional cleaning methods.
  2. Once you’ve determined that the razor blade is a go for your stove, proceed by turning it off and waiting for a few minutes for the surface to cool.
  3. Spray any visible stains with vinegar to weaken them for scraping.
  4. Using the razor or scraper, scuff the stains slowly and carefully. Do not use the corners of the blade to avoid scratching the stovetop. It’s important to make sure that the act of scraping is as flat as possible.
  5. Afterwards, wipe away the scraped stain particles using a clean microfiber cloth.
