I will try the ME, too. Even though this funky cleaning pad scares me to death...
The first time I tried it was on a door knob and the grime that builds around it. It freakin' works like its namesake! But it also stripped the satin finish off the wood. I spent the rest of an unfortunate afternoon using the ME to wipe down a perfectly good door just to give it a consistent (now) flat finish. By the end, the ME pad had shrunk and shriveled to a hard putty the size of Mr. Clean's eyeball. I.. do not want to know.. what "Magic Eraser" is made of...
The absolute last thing you want to use to clean the glass top of a ceramic stove is any abrasive, whether it's the detergent or the scrub pad. Glass easily scratches. Go ahead and try Goo Gone, remembering to allow its foam to soak. I use it for my outdoor grills, notoriously hard to clean.
