I am so grateful to the people who suggested that I use a razor blade to get the black spots off my white smooth top cooking range. I cleaned first as good as I could and then used a single edge razor blade and it took every spot off! It looks like new. I was afraid it might scratch the top, but it didn't!

Thanks to everyone!

So glad it worked for you! There is this stuff at the store (sorry, I don't know what it's called) that puts a protective layer on the glass top after you clean it. I think it might be a cleaner, but my DH uses Windex to clean the glass top, then puts that protective stuff over it. It really does help to prevent spilled food from sticking real hard.

Sorry, I missed what happened, etc., so I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but I've only ever used soft scrub. If was real stubborn, I'd take a hot dish rag and lay it over the burner spots and let it "soak" a few times, then scrub, with one of those Choir Boy scrubbies. It's got a mesh like overlay with a yellow sponge within.

Either way, glad you got the spots off!

I just discovered a two pkg. of these blades in our $ store. They are window scrappers. One sided blades in a little plastic holder. So much better for my arthritic hands.

Oh, funny. I just was telling someone at work last night that I do the same thing with the razor. She was afraid to try it, but I assured her that I have never had a problem. It makes them look like new! I do this at least once a month- I am a messy cook! LOL!

my glasstop stove came with a razor in a holder--like a paint
scraper for windows. That is what I have used for 10 years on mine and it looks like new.
I figured if the manufacturer included one and recommended it, that it must be the way to go.

I have really burned some icky stuff over the years and I am sure it would have not come off without my razor
