If a pot caused some small scratches to appear on your new, glass stove top, remove them with the following steps. Once you have finished, your stove will look as good as it did before the damage occurred. Take measures to protect your stove's surface from additional blemishes in the future.
Use The Following Materials
- baking soda
- buffing cloth
- metal polish
- cleaning cloths
Remove The Scratches
Add a small amount of baking soda and water to a bowl and mix them together with a spoon to make a paste. The consistency should be similar to pudding. There is no need to clean the stove's glass surface with any other product before removing the scratches. The combination of baking soda and water is also effective in removing surface stains.
Use a lint free cloth to rub the paste into the surface of the stove. Move the cloth around in circular motions while applying pressure to the glass. Wipe away the paste with a damp cloth. If the scratch is still visible, move on to the next step.
Apply Metal Polish
Apply a small amount of metal polish to a buffing cloth. Rub the polish onto the stove top while pressing down. Move the buffing cloth around in small circles. Wipe away the excess polish with a dry cloth. Remove any residue that remains on the stove top's surface with a damp cloth. Dry the surface well with another cloth. The scratch will no longer be visible and your stove top will look as good as new.
Prevent Future Damage
Many scratches occur when cookware is set directly upon glass surfaces or when pots and pans rub against the area around each burner. Before cooking, rinse the bottom of each piece of cookware off to ensure that no food particles or debris are present on their surface. Place pots and pans in one spot while food is cooking and refrain from moving them onto the glass.
If you need to move a pot or pan onto the glass surface, lift it up off of the burner and place it on top of a pot holder or cloth. Clean your stove regularly and remove food spills as soon as they become apparent. Always use a soft cloth to clean your stove. Scrub brushes or scouring pads can cause serious damage to the glass.
