    After cleaning the actual grease off with soapy wet rag and then Rinsing, I use Weiman stove top cleaner/polish. I also use weiman stainless steel cleaner/polish. Both work great to clean and polish - looks like new. I get the products at Walmart.

    I moved this year and left behind my black gas stove (thank goodness!!) I would NEVER ever buy another black stove. Now I have a black ceramic electric stove top and they recommend the Cerama-Brite. I ordered some from Amazon and it does a great job on the stainless, too.

    I used microfibre on the gas stove and got it streak free but was never able to get a couple of burnt on places cleaned up. Fortunately, the stove was pretty new and a guy bought my condo so he probably didn't even notice the crusty spots.

    Now, about black ceramic sinks. I had one of those, too, thinking I'd be free of the so-called stainless sink but it didn't work out all that well. The sink got really dull looking and the only way I found to restore the shine was to use oil on it. A real nuisance and I had to be careful not to get a build up of the oil. I don't recommend the black sink option.

    I use the dry powder cleaner on my black stove-it is call the Bar Keepers Friend-in a canister looks like Comet cleaner-works like a pro and soap and water clean up with paper toweling-takes off all spills and I use it on a scouring sponge

    I totally agree. My stove is white gas with the black trays. takes me all of 5 minutes to clean. I just stick the trays into the sink with Dawn and while that's going on, I wipe up the rest of the stove with the microfiber cloths and sweep the floor then finish cleaning the trays and grates put back done. I love the microfiber cloths for dishes. Won't use anything else. If you do it right after using or even at the last meal, you won't have to spend all that extra hard effort to clean it. Clean as you go. Not taking that 5 minutes just creates a build up.

    The directions for my black glass top Whirlpool range says not to use windex as the glass is porus. I use soda and vinegar. Works great. Rinse and dry with micro fiber cloth.

    I have a black range along with other kitchen appliances and I find like you that it is hard to get clean and look shiny. When the sun shines in the window I see dust on it. Thanks for asking how to deal with it. Am reading through responses.

    I hate my Black stove.. just saying..It sure wasn't my idea to get it.. But i still have to clean the darn thing.. I use Vinegar on it and always dry it off with a soft towel or rag to get the streaks off of it... If I had to do over I will stay with white from now on.....

    google helped me decide to use it on my stainless steel appliances. Just a tiny bit on cloth, don't spray on the appliance, and it has worked great on everything but the freezer of my frig. It is greatly improved though. I have about 6 different stainless steel cleaners here and none work. WD40 worked the best and I'm guessing it will work on black appliances too. As far as the smell, I am not sensitive to it, have no chemical sensitivities and once it is on the cloth, for me, the odor dissipates very quickly. No one here knows I use it because they can't smell it.

    It is so interesting that some products work for some of us and some don't. After reading on here how great that Awesome spray worked I got some and it didn't work on anything I tried it on here! Gave it a few tries here and there and then threw it out.

    Oh, and WD40 takes grease stains out of clothes! Who knew. It worked for me.

    I love the smell of WD-40 in the morning.

    I use the stuff all the time, it works great on getting the nasty gunk off machinery.

    I used Lysol cleaner. I put it in a spray bottle and always used it to clean my black stove. It made it shine..
