Dawn Dissolver might be a good product to use. I have excellent success with it so far and I have cleaned a lot of ceramic surfaces with it. I have been encouraged by a lot of friends to try the eraser cleaning sponges. They really swear by them.

Been there and done that--boil a kettle of water, saturate a cloth with boiling water and place over the congealed mess---let stand for 30 minutes and lift up----if any residue is left--use the barkeeper to get up the residue that is left--works most of the time and GOOD LUCK!!!

PS--Forgot to add that if you are in some part of the world that doesn't have Barkeeper's Friend try using a paste of baking soda and water which will abrade and rub junk away without scratching the surface. Believe me, Kazakhstan does not have Barkeeper's friend and I have a ceramic top cooker and this works very well for me after following my instructions in the above posting.

Hi Everyone

Thanks so much for all of the replies. I got the gunk off, but was sweating it, I can tell you. My stovetop is white, so you can imagine what a mess I had.

I soaked a paper towel in hot white vinegar and laid it over the mess, then after about 1/2 hour, I started with the razor blade. Seemed to take forever, but gradually I got most of it off. The rest came off with the cleaner I bought at Lowe's.

Thanks again to all of you.
