How do you get a flat top stove clean after
January 21, 2013 at 1:16 PM

Your brilliant husband sets a plastic bowl on the eye not realizing it was still hot???  I wiped it as best I could while it was still hot so it smeared in places, i tried scraping it off with a butter knife, but I can't get it all off HELP!!!

    Yikes!  I might try the butter knife (or a razor blade) after it is completely cool and hardened.  Kinda like scraping something off of your car windshield?

     and this is why I don't have one. I would be the dumb ass who put something on it.

    Have you tried to put it on low heat and scrape / wipe it like that the heat will help the plastic to be more pliable and less likely to scratch.

    Get a straight razor and turn the stove on low heat and then scrape quickly.

    Warm the area and use a razor blade. That's the advice from my stove mfr. There is a special scraper you can buy, its basically the same thing you use to scrape paint from a window. A razor blade in a special holder.

    Ha ha. First week I had mine I spilled a bit of water on the surface, used the towel in my hand to quickly wipe it up and the towel melted. Microfiber. That's how I learned about the razor blade
