How to Remove the Discoloration of a Glass Top Stove

Glass top stoves are a popular appliance in newer homes and among homeowners upgrading their appliances. Unlike traditional stoves, glass top stoves don't require involved cleaning since burner grates and burner pans don't have to be removed and scrubbed. Since glass top stoves are easier to clean, they should, in theory, be cleaned more frequently than traditional stoves to keep them looking their best.

To keep your glass top stove looking its best, clean it daily.

Step 1

Squeeze the juice from one lemon into a bowl. If you prefer to use concentrate, pour 2 tsp. lemon juice in a bowl. Add 2 tsp. baking soda to the lemon juice and mix well to make a paste.

Step 2

Check your glass stove top to make sure the surface is completely cool. Apply the baking soda paste to a wet sponge and scrub the surface of the stove. Continue to scrub until the discoloration is gone, then rinse well a clean sponge and warm water.

Step 3

Scrape off any cooked-on food with a plastic scraper. Do not apply too much pressure, as this may cause damage to your stove.

Step 4

Clean the stove top with a glass stove top cleaner if any stains or discoloration remain. You can purchase this cleaner from the manufacturer of your stove or from an appliance store.
