    I have not used that brand, I took the wifes glass cooktop cleaner that is a white paste like a buffing compound . Works very well and cleans glass like new.

    Nope, never used that one. I'm sure it will do a good job. I have used and like this one...

    I do agree very good and not all that much is needed. I really only use this maybe 2-4 times a season. My normal cleaning is before i light the stove up with some warm wet paper towels.......wipe done good......dry it up....thats bout it.

    How much elbow grease to you need to use with these products on COLD glass that has a pretty good creosote BUILD-UP on it?

    Does it wipe right off; or is there a little scrubbing; or a lot of scrubbing to do?

    Cold glass - warm wet paper towel with a little ash
    Hot glass - dry paper towel
    If you get a newspaper, that works as good as paper towel
    Or waste your money, if ya just GOTTA have store bought.

    All I use is a wet paper towel now once a week when I empty the ashes for over two seasons. The glass is still clear.

    I use vinegar most of the time, and a Mr Clean eraser when things get stubborn.

    Hello

    The white creamy Cooktop cleaner sold at Home Depot is the same stuff. You get alot more for alot less money.

    $6.99 for 20 ounces
    http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc...splay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

    You can also dip a paper towel in water and then in pellet ash. That cleans the window quite well!

    Either one of the above is alot cheaper than the Rutland Glass Cleaner I see on Amazon.com
    $12.10 for 8 ounces !!!!
    http://www.amazon.com/Rutland-Produ...NMNY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1319848285&sr=8-1

    Also Simple Green Glass cleaner at lowes works good
    No Bleach or ammonia that will ruin the high temp ceramic glass.

    Ok, you are all of those things.

    I'm mean, nasty, and I bite.

    My favorite is a ash dipped damp cloth thingy (highly technical term) or such.

    Wet paper towel dipped into stove ash doesn't require too much effort, and Magic Eraser works well also.

    This link is to the one that has Dawn in it, but the original works great too.
    I have also bought & used the local grocery store's own version of it (Price Chopper),
    and it works just as well & is cheaper.

    ash, paper towel, if streaked, use microfiber cloth, if baked on, use single edge razor blade very gently (as you might for getting paint of the glass after painting a window.) I have yet to scratch the glass. if you use that stove top cleaner with the razor blade, it glides easily across the glass and lifts off any junk. We do this for our white glass cookstove top with very good results. (Last white glass stove we'll ever buy :-S )

    I use a paper towel and water .. works good and cheap. I dont get any creosote build up, i burn it too hot for that.. I do get a grey film on each side of the glass though ..

    Well, what I use is pretty mudane compared to all the fancy squirt juice.

    I just grab an SOS pad from under the sink and wet it a bit, go after the glass door and then wipe off with a wet paper towel followed by a dry one. GOOD TO GO

    Now I burn the nut shells and they tend to leave a sticky yellow haze on the glass at times.

    Been using SOS forever.

    Thanks for all the replies...I will try it tomorrow. I guess I'm being a bit of a Pu$$y since I'm a rookie!! Why wouldn't I just clean it like a window??? Cause the book said to go buy this crap. Next bottle I will try the stovetop cleaner!
