That makes more sense. I did not know heat would set the marks. That's interesting.

I also read and keep manuals handy.

I have a big box with a good lid that I keep all my manuals in, too. I have to go thru it once or twice a year and throw away the ones to stuff that's gone or has died, but I can always put my hands on the manual I need. Of course, in a house full of guys, I'm the only one who ever reads them.

My stove, at this point is at leat 12 years old and I like it very much.

I have one maybe 1 inch scratch from what I don't know ... and a very small black patch from burnt on habarnero jelly.

And then I went and put my food processor bowl onto a hot element last week . I have that pretty much scraped up now though.

I use everything on it, though I'm going to be careful about thin aluminum -- thanks for the tip!

I've now had the stove for about a month. I like it, but it is high maintenance! If I would have known how much care it requires, I probably would not have purchased it. It's a lot of work and I've banned my teenage daughters from using it. The Weiman's cleaner is very good. I always make sure it is clean before I use it. Unfortunately, I don't think my girls would check. Tonight, I had some small burnt spots on the stove and I left a wet dishcloth on top of them. I got them cleaned up later. Whew!!!

Sorry your stove isn't turning out to be all you've hoped for, CA. I always hate it when that happens because unless your last name is Getty, you'll probably have that stove for a while! Did you at least get your new set of cookware?

Mine is a white glass top. I use all kinds of pots and pans on it. You just have to be careful about sliding pans across it. The cleaner I use for mine, is available at Loews or Home Depot. they sell it in the appliance dept. Works very well.

I use Barkeepers Friend on mine and that works really well. I only use the special cooktop stuff maybe once every other month.

IMO I'd have to say that my smoothtop is incredibly low maintainence compared to all the other ones I have had without sealed elements.

That Greased Lightning spray is amazing. I use it on my gas stove. Burnt stuff comes right up without hardly any soaking. I bet it would be real good on glass tops.
