Black cook top stoves.

Wow, If I would have known the headaches, that acompany the cleaning of this appliance, I would not have purchased it
I would generally appreciate it if someone has a remedy.

Mines black... it's impossible to clean.
The light shines right on top of it and it shows every streak and finger print and smug. good luck! lol

Quizzie I feel your pain. I don't have an entire black stove but have a stainless steel one but the controls are in black and plated on a little shiny black plate. I am anal and here is the only way I get it cleaned to my satisfaction.

Spray my stove (steel and black parts) with greased lightening (love the product). I leave it on the stove for 10 minutes. I then clean it with a damp sponge. Next I take a dry microfiber cloth and dry the stove until it shines. Yes the black part shines like it's brand new.

Just keep in mind that any appliances - black, white, stainless need to be cleaned after every use to keep them in good condition. I am deligent at cleaning after every cooking chore and then once a week I recruit my husband to do detail cleaning (using elbow grease). As I stated earlier I am extremely anal about a clean and shiny kitchen although I know the minute my kids eat or the minute I cook (which I do almost every day) it will be back to it's original state and I will have to clean all over again.

409 or such products are good on enameld steel, but if you mean a glass top ceramic cook top, there is a product specially made just for them. It is a silicon cream that scrubs them and polishes them nicely without much effort. Harware store sell it. Many brands.

Thanks to all, My problem started when I fried 240 pork chops with a flour batter. It was time based. Last spur of the moment call in. I did it in 1 1/2 hours and boy did my stove top show the proof. By the time I was finished frying, and ready for clean up, the spilled over oil had cooked itself into the enamel.
I have gotten a majority of it off with (elbow grease).

If you noticed on the post your kitchen pics thread, mine is basically black. I have cleaned mine with SoftScrub from day one. Sometimes when something is cooked in, I will let it set and then using my two sided sponge, I will scrub a little. Don't use the wire scrubbers, like Choreboys, unless it's a big spot and you don't touch the glass.
