I have scrubbed with brillo pads, cillit bang, hob cleaner but it still have rings on it that will not go. Is there anything that gets them off as it looks like I never clean it blush

Oh and hob-rite

mine is pretty good actually - you do have to get into the habit of wiping it when it is warm and keeping a razor/glass scraper to hand for any spills. Mine is nearly 5 years old and looking much better than if it were gas!

Bloody hell! Brillo pads?? It will be scratched.
I use HOB BRITE cleaner. Orange bottle, blue label.

I've used the hob brite stuff since it was new (few months ago blush) I think milk boiling over a little while ago has made it a million times worse. I shall try these

I am going to sound v v stupid here. We moved into a rented house with fitted cooker a while ago and it had a hob I assumed was electric, but wondering if it is in fact halogen.

How can I tell?

Halogen are the totally flat glowing ones (I think?) Ceramic (?) electric are like little raised black plates.

Bicarb on a damp cloth might be worth a try.
