Glass-top stoves come with a lot of advantages, not only do they add a sleek, minimalist look, but also come with the major benefit of not having to clean or replace drip pans or burner grates. But the biggest disadvantage is the fact that even the smallest spill or splatter can seem much more noticeable. When cleaning it, you need to be very much careful. You need to clean it without scratching it so that you can keep your kitchen looking its best.
The Basics- Never clean your stovetop while the surface is still hot; check manufacturer’s instructions so that you don’t accidentally void any warranties. When it comes to glass top stove, certain ranges require you to use a specific type of cleaning product; when it comes to the tools to use for cleaning glass top stove, scouring pads or scrub brushes could leave scratches. Stick to softer cleaning materials, such as microfiber cloths or sponges.
