Re: Glass Stove

That looks like the mark that is left when you put a wet pan on a glass cooker. Induction seems to be worse for this than the others.

Look in Coop/Migros or such for a glass/stainless cleaner which specifically mentions glass cooking tops.

It's a cream with a very fine abrasive in it. You might find it easier to start by wetting the mark with lemon juice or white vinegar first, this will take some of the calcium off.

Re: Glass Stove

Creamy potz and blade with a little water should do the trick.

Re: Glass Stove

I use Sigolin Glaskeramik reiniger and a special scouring sponge with chamois on one side, all purchased in COOP or Migros can't remember, but it works well. I wouldn't use a metal blade as you could really scratch the surface. A bit of elbow grease and the stubbornest of stains is gone.

Re: Glass Stove

If you use/hold the cleaning blade correctly you won't scratch it. Rub the potz in really well first using a sponge with a little water, and the blade will do the rest.

I have used blade scrapers for years and never once scratched a surface.

Re: Glass Stove

Get "Putzstein" or "Pierre de Nettoyage" from Migros. It comes in a small round tub and it's next to all the other cleaning products. It works much better than Pots.

Here's a link to it: https://produkte.migros.ch/migros-pl...n-502046000000

Sometimes you have no choice but to use a blade, and if you use the correct one and carefully, you will be fine. Working with very good lighting helps.

Re: Glass Stove

Another trick is to spread a wet, thickish dishcloth very flat, over the marked hotplate (cold, switched off). Drop a few spoonfuls of extra water onto the cloth. Then just leave it for some hours. It's a way to soak the dirt. Later, at least some of it will rub off more easily.

It can also be helpful to use a microfibre cloth (rather than a cotton one) to rub off the mark. Only while the hotplate is cold.

On the other hand, if ever a pot boils over, NEVER use a microfibre cloth to wipe up the spill while the hotplate is still hot. Some microfibre cloths can melt and stick to the hotplate. For this purpose, cotton is much better.

Re: Glass Stove

I just tried the Putzstein tonight (bought it at Landi), worked like a treat! Can certainly recommend that

Re: Glass Stove

I have also used simple oven cleaner on the glass hob. K2R is the best brand, spray it on and leave overnight, or as long as possible. Keep animals away from the stove!

Sometimes the bottom of the saucepans are not clean enough, and when used the mess is transferred onto the hob.
