While subletting, I inadvertently turned on the wrong element on a glass top range. It appears as if the cheap metal from the pad on the empty pot melted a couple of rings onto the stove top - that won't budge.
Will the surface scratch if I try to remove it with a sharp blade? Any other ideas?
I have until Mar 31 to figure this out (when the owners return)
Find the manufacturers web site. Email them to learn what to do. Ask the worst also..how much to replace the top - this way you will have all the info up front. I hope you get the stain off. My first attempt would be to soak it with baking soda paste. Let sit / dry etc. and see if that doesn't help.
Next -- would oven cleaner (the spray on no heat type) work? Would that hurt the glass (again ask the maker)
Thanks for the ideas. I have tried baking soda - didn't budge...still a baking soda fan though - I mean this is hardened metal I was asking it to remove!
I guess I've got nothing to lose by trying to scrape it with a blade ... but if I have to replace the top, not only will it cost, but there's the owners warranty issues. Dang.
I have an Matage glass top stove.They gave me a tool that has a blade in it like a razor blade. If something boils over I use this to scrape it off. The man at the store where I bought it took a quater and tried to scratch it and didn't hurt it. Ann
