are popular because they are easier to wipe down than a gas or electric coil stove.
It's fine to use the soft side of yourto wipe down your glass cooktop. Avoid the urge to flip it over and use the scrubby side, though. It is much too abrasive and can lead to surface scratches.
Umm, a big nope on this one. A sponge's abrasive side can leave little scratches. Steel wool, on the other hand, can leave deep pits in the surface of your stovetop. Food can get stuck in these crevasses and become permanent features of the stovetop.
To remove tough, dried-on grime, your best bet is a razor blade. Hold it at a 45-degree angle and skim the grossness off the glass.
Any cleanser while the stove's hot
Always wait until the stove is completely cooled down before cleaning it. Cleansers can quickly burn and damage the finish of the glass, leaving pits or boils.
While you're scrubbing at a tough spot, don't lean into it. Extra elbow grease can put too much pressure on the glass, making it crack. A light touch is best.
Glass cleaners, like Windex, are a no-no. I know it seems logical to use a glass cleaner on a glass stovetop, but it's not a good idea. The ammonia in the glass cleaner is too strong for cleaning a stove top and can lead to damage. A better alternative is white vinegar.
