To remove burnt-on stains from a stovetop, you can follow these steps:

  1. Allow the stovetop to cool completely before cleaning.
  2. Remove any loose debris or food particles with a soft brush or cloth.
  3. Create a cleaning solution by mixing equal parts of baking soda and water to form a paste. You can also use a commercial stovetop cleaner if preferred.
  4. Apply the paste onto the burnt areas and let it sit for about 15 minutes. The baking soda helps loosen the burnt-on stains.
  5. Use a non-abrasive sponge or cloth to scrub the burnt areas gently. The paste, combined with light pressure, should help lift the stains.
  6. If the stains are stubborn, you can also use a scraper specifically designed for glass or ceramic stovetops. Be careful not to use metal scrapers that may damage the surface.
  7. After scrubbing, rinse the stovetop thoroughly with warm water to remove any residue. Wipe it dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  8. If there are any remaining stains, repeat the process or try using vinegar. Moisten a cloth or sponge with vinegar and gently rub the stains. Rinse and wipe dry.
  9. For regular maintenance and prevention of burnt-on stains, wipe the stovetop with a damp cloth after each use to remove spills and avoid buildup.


Remember to always read the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and maintenance specific to your stovetop type, as some materials may require different cleaning techniques or products.

To remove burnt-on stains from a stovetop, you can follow these steps:

  1. Allow the stovetop to cool completely before cleaning.
  2. Scrape off any loose debris or food particles using a plastic scraper or a razor blade at a 45-degree angle. Be careful not to scratch the surface.
  3. Sprinkle baking soda generously over the stained areas. Baking soda is a mild abrasive and helps to loosen the stains without scratching the surface.
  4. Dampen a clean cloth or sponge with warm water and place it over the baking soda-covered stains. Let it sit for around 10-15 minutes. The warm water and baking soda mixture will help to loosen the burnt-on stains.
  5. After the soaking time, use the damp cloth or sponge to scrub the stained areas gently. The baking soda will act as a gentle abrasive to help lift the stains.
  6. For stubborn stains, you can make a paste by mixing baking soda with water until it forms a thick consistency. Apply the paste to the stains and let it sit for 15-20 minutes before scrubbing with a cloth or sponge.
  7. Rinse the stovetop thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining baking soda residue.
  8. For grease stains, you can use a grease-cutting dish soap or a gentle kitchen cleaner. Apply a small amount to the stained areas, let it sit for a few minutes, and then scrub with a non-abrasive sponge or cloth.
  9. For glass or ceramic stovetops, you can use a specialized stovetop cleaner recommended for your specific surface. Follow the instructions provided by the cleaner manufacturer.
  10. Once the stains are removed, wipe the stovetop with a clean, damp cloth to remove any cleaning residue.


Remember to always check your stovetop's manufacturer's instructions before cleaning, as some surfaces may require specific cleaning techniques or products.
