How to Clean a Glass Stove Top

Glass stoves look beautiful when clean and shiny, but they often don’t stay that way for long. Using the cooking surface daily can make it messy and greasy, leaving it looking dull. But have no fear, we’ll show you how to clean a glass stove top to get it looking fresh and new again in this handy guide.

  1. Step 1 Make Sure the Stove is Off and Cool

    A person makes sure that the stove is turned off and cool before they clean the top.

    First, make sure that the stove is off and cooled down before attempting any type of cleaning. If you’ve used the stove recently, make sure that you give it enough time to cool down completely.

  2. Step 2 Wipe It down Every Day

    A person uses a spray cleaner to wipe their stove top down after using it.

    Spray your glass cooktop surface with glass cleaner and wipe clean with a soft towel. This should be done once per day if you use it daily to make sure that you always have a beautiful, clean glass cooktop.

  3. Step 3 Deep Clean Regularly

    A person rubs stove top cleaner into their cooktop before cleaning it off.

    A stove top cleaner can help you deep-clean your cooktop. First, you apply the cleaner and let it dry, then buff it off for a like-new shine.

  4. Step 4 Scrape Burnt on Spills

    A person uses a razor scraping tool to remove stuck-on food from their cooktop.

    Most stove top cleaning kits will come with a razor scraping tool. This will help you remove some of the more caked-on grease and any burnt food residue. Simply hold the scraper at an angle and scrap away the dirt. Afterward, wipe it clean with a soft cloth.

  5. Step 5 Polish with a Clean Cloth

    A person uses a soft cloth to polish their cooktop.

    Once your cleaning is done, grab a soft cloth and polish your glass stove top to a beautiful shine. Remember, the more regularly you clean your cooktop, the less work you’ll have to do to keep it that way.
