    My wife blackened the glass last night. I have been using Fireview glass cleaner from spray 9 for years. They reformulated it a few years ago. It still works but not as good as it did.

    Any one use another commercial cleaner you like?

    Typically I only get blackened glass if a split rolls up against the glass . . . although I get some fly ash covering the glass making it not as crystal clear. Usually, some wet paper towels or newspaper will suffice to clean it.

    If that fails I dip the paper towel/newspaper in a bit of the fine ash to clean it . . . another alternative for me is to simply wait it out as a subsequent secondary burn (I realize your stove may not have secondary burns) will burn most of it off.

    Seems like most use the Rutland brand glass cleaner. I used it once but actually prefer Jake's method, except I use a damp microfiber cloth dipped in the white ash. The Rutland stuff seemed to smear a little, but it does work.

    Paper towels and vinegar. I'll break out the scrubbing pad that's safe for ceramic cooktops, if needed.

    I slightly dampened a paper towel and dip in fine ash - cleans up perfect.

    Oven easy off. New razor blade to take off any stubborn bits.

    Dampened paper towel and some fine ash to get the tough areas clean. I never use a commercial cleaner....

    Been using Easy Off since I got my stove. Have used ash in a pinch and it works well I use it sparingly because I'm worried I'm going to pick up sand and grit that will scratch the glass.

    I used to have newspapers to dip in the ash, that was one good use for them as it didn't leave lint behind.
