I have small amount, more like smears, of charcoal eggs white and some soup on the hob. I can't clean it off! Any tips? When I rub it, the brown residue stays on the cloth so I'm hoping I can remove the rest somehow.

How to clean off burnt food would be better in the title.

Have you tried Hob Brite? That works well I find for a sparkly clean hob!

I have this problem too, burnt on rice water and milk that had over spilled. Hob brite doesn't get rid, I go round and round with it as per the instructions. I am too scared to take a scourer to the hob in case I damage it. So it ends up getting used again and further burnt on.

Maybe there is some homemade trick, like soda? confused

Someone must have the answer. Have you tried scraping with a knife or scourer?

I'm not scraping anything with the knife! The scourer does not work anymore since it's dark hard charcoal hmm

hmm Was at what it become not at you, Boris.

A second vote for hob brite. I used it when I had an electric hob and found it worked very well.

I have this and Hob Brite does not work. I might try the dishwasher tablet trick used for oven door glass next.

What is the dishwasher tablet trick?

Bumping for the late night crowd.

I've read it on here. You dampen the end of a dishwasher tablet and rub it on the glass of the oven door to clean it.

bicarb of soda, a washing up scrubber thing and elbow grease.

I use a sponge scourer and 'bar keepers friend' on mine when food gets burnt on. You need a fair bit of elbow grease too!

Have you tried a paste of cream of tartar? It worked on the black crap round the chrome of my toaster.

The dishwasher tablet works! I use a Tesco value tablet, dampen it and rub it over gently. It cleans off all the marks that hob brite didn't touch.
