    I've read all the good ideas for cleaning shower stalls. I have a question: what is a good way to clean cooked on grease from a black stovetop? Sorry to admit that I've let it get ahead of me and I can't get the cooked on grease off. Any suggestions?

    Try Dawn Power Dissolver.

    I use it to clean my oven and the barbecue grill racks. I take the racks and put them in a big trash bag and squirt this on it and leave it for a few hours then use a wire brush.

    Is it ceramic/glass I still use the Mr. Clean erasers. They are chemical free and work amanzing. I use them on my ceramic/glass cooktop. I use a razor blade first to get off the burnt on foods then the eraser. but if it is not a ceramic/glass cooktop the razor blade might not be a good idea. but the eraser is not that expensive to try.

    if you have a floor steamer, use that on the stovetop - you may have to throw away the cloth, but it should work without chemicals.

    I've used all of those and the best so far is No Fume Easy Off for the oven. spray it on let it soak for 2 hrs.(You can sew while you wait.) Wipe off with a wet cloth. I know it says oven but it works on top too.

    This is similar to what I do to clean stove top. I use Soft Scrub, after razor blade.

    There is a product called DeSolvit that works wonderful on grease. Wal Mart, Hardware stores, and some grocery stores carry it. It's orange based. If it's been baked on spray it on and let it set 30 min - 1 hr. Depending on how thick the grease is, you may have to spray on more after a while. Just take your finger or old toothbrush and spread it over the greasy areas, you don't need tons of it to work.

    To clean grease on my stove, hard water stains on glass or porcelain, I use 0000 Steel Wool also. Yes, steel wool, but make sure it is 0000. You can use it on your stove, mirrors, porcelain, glass, cars, and just about anything you can think of that's not soft and it won't scratch it. I've been using it for years and it works wonderful.

    Once you get it clean, you'll be amazed at how easy it is to keep your stove top clean and shiny. Vinegar works great afterwards for shine.

    After years of trying every product I could find, I very reluctantly (an carefully!) resorted to the razor blade! OMG! I could not believe how easily and completely it cleaned off the gunk! Now I just keep the stove top wiped off as well as i can, and then about every 2 weeks or so, out comes the good ol' razor blade.

    I've used a razor blade to get the stuff loose. Then I use baking soda and a soft scrubby.


    Cheryl: I haven't been able to find DeSolvit for several years. I love that stuff.
    What is 0000 steel wool? I know about brillo pads, but I don't know about 0000 steel wool.

    It is a gas stovetop with burners. Why I chose black is beyond me, but even though it is several years old, it is too good to replace.

    By the way, I'm a native Texan too! I was born at home in a little town called Odell. Know where that is? I don't even know if it is on the map now!

    I had good luck with the oven cleaner, followed by the magic eraser. Now I will add in the razor blades. Thanks for the tips.

    Thanks, everyone! I used to work at a store that sold 0000 steel wool, but I just assumed it was to be used by our DHs in their workshops! I'm going to print out all of these suggestions right now!

    I just bought a new stove that has a black top. I bought the the kit at lowe's where I bought the stove. It is called Cerama-Brite. It comes with a sponge you use to apply with. It is made of soft material. I also comes with a single edge razor blade that fits into a handle that you use to get stubborn stuff off with. It is great. If you could see the stove after my huband has cooked and how it looks after I clean it you would be sold. It is just fantastic. You put this on let it dry and then rub it off with a soft cloth. Looks brand new after every cleaning. I have had the stove since Aug of 08.

    Thanks for the info. My husband likes to go to Lowe's so I'll go with him next time! My stovetop is much older than yours and is not a ceramic top, but I don't know why that wouldn't work on my stovetop.

    Mine is glass not ceramic. The product is made for glass and ceramic. They told me not to use anything else or I would have scratches galore.

    OK. Thanks. Mine is enamel or something metal. So I'd probably better not use it.

    Go on line and find the manufacture ask them what to use if you use the wrong stuff you can dammage the top. My husband always cooked breakfast and would get egg on my top(rest his sole what a sweethart) I use cermaic cleaner, get it at Lowes or any hardware store it has a scruber with it. It will take it off.

    My Maytag smooth top came with a razor blade scrapper. How on earth do you clean a smooth top without one? I don't baby my cooktop at all, what ever I have handy to spray on it, cleans it up after a few swipes with the scrapper. I use Scrubbing Bubbles, Windex, even carpet cleaner if that's what I grab first. I will never buy another Maytag though, the company told me I could get a new top if any cooking mark did not scrap or clean off. I had a Maytag repairman come out and he said Maytag knew the tops would turn black after being heated to high heat and now the company said it's cosmetic and will not affect the cooking so the warranty will not cover it. I guess I could sue for a new one but I prefer to tell how shabby they treat customers.

    And the darn Maytags last forever! I have a Maytag washing machine that is over 15 years old and have never had a problem with it! It's the pits they won't honor their warranty on your cooktop.
