Clean burnt stains off of your black glass stovetop with hardly any scrubbing with this 3 ingredient mixture. Get your stovetop shiny again in a matter of minutes! Cleaning tips and tricks that will leave your stove looking like new.
I have a confession to make, I am a VERY messy cook. Having my little kids helping me in the kitchen just makes the spills and drips even worse. I love when they get involved with the food prep but the clean up definitely takes longer when they do!
When we built our house, we tried to cut costs any way we could. We found a used electric oven on Craigslist for a good price but sadly in need of a good cleaning, I mean, I don’t think the previous owners had ever even bothered to clean the black stovetop since there were burnt stains galore. Looking back, I’m surprised we bought it! I guess we were desperate at that point.
Luckily after a little trial and error, I found a way to clean that black stovetop without having to scrub at it all day. In fact, I can get it from terrible looking to like new in a matter of minutes! And the best part is, I already had all of these ingredients in my house, and I bet you do too!
How to Clean a Black Glass Stovetop on a Daily Basis:
Doing a quick daily wipe down of your stovetop will help keep it looking presentable between deep cleanings. Having a dirty stove, makes cooking less enjoyable and your whole kitchen feel less of a pleasant place to be. Take out sounds more tempting when your kitchen isn’t clean, right?
This process should just take a minute or two.
- Clear any pots and pans off of your stove after you have finished a cooking session.
- Before you clean your black glass stovetop, make sure it has had a chance to completely cool down.
- Wipe the surface of your stovetop with a wet rag. If needed, add a few drops of dawn dish soap to your rag.
- Quickly go over the back of your stove where the dials are.

How to Remove Burnt Stains from a Stove Top – Deep Cleaning:
Once a month to every 6 weeks, I like to do a deep thorough clean on my black glass stovetop. This involves more than just a quick wipe down. I completely clean off any burnt on foods or black stains and wash the dials and LED screen on the back of the stove.
This process takes about 10 minutes.

2. Before you clean your black glass stovetop , make sure it has had a chance to completely cool down.
3. Wipe off any bigger foods or crumbs with a wet rag.
4. Pour a couple of Tablespoons of Bar Keeper’s Friend powder in a little pile onto your stovetop.
5. Add a small squirt of Blue Dawn Dish Soap and about a Tablespoon of White Distilled Vinegar.
6. Wearing rubber cleaning gloves, mix these ingredients together using a scrubby.
7. Scrub this mixture over the entire surface of your stovetop in a circular motion.

10. Remove the dials from the back of your stove. Wash them in your kitchen sink or dishwasher.

Bonus: DIY Oven Door Handle in a Pinch:
You might have noticed the gold knobs on the front of my oven door, fancy, huh?! Our handle just decided to crack on me one day, so rather than pay $50 for a replacement handle for an oven that cost us about that much to buy, my husband decided to try temporarily screwing in some extra cabinet knobs we had left over and voila! We have a custom look stove and it didn’t cost us a dime. The screws that were holding the original handle on, fit perfectly with the cabinet knobs so it was meant to be.
