he other night we were cooking something with Milk on our Ceramic Stove Top and it boiled over leaving a crusty, burnt circle of something we never thought we would be able to remove.
It was extremely frustrating to have to deal with the spillover on the glass top stove, it was so quick to burn and I really thought for a minute that it would be there forever. The words of the installer kept coming to mind, "If you ruin the ceramic stove top you might as well just get a new stove!". Ughhhhhh, what was I gonna do, then I remembered how I dealt with it last time it happened.
Once the majority of the burnt food is gone and the surface no longer has any edges to catch with the razor blade, you are ready to move onto the next phase. Start by mixing a paste of baking soda and water in a small dish. It should be the consistency of toothpaste. Spread the paste over the burnt area and allow it to set for at least 10 minutes. Do not allow it to sit so long that it dries out. An optional step is to pour lemon juice over the baking soda. It will cause a fizzing and may help to release tougher areas. After either mixture (plain or with lemon juice) has had a chance to sit, gently scrub the area with a soft cloth or plastic scrubber. Do not use any abrasive scrubbers as it will damage the glass surface.
Repeat as necessary until the food is gone.
If a stain still remains after the burnt food is removed, clean the stain with either baking soda and water or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. When all burnt food and stains are removed, clean the surface as usual with mild soap and warm water.
