    Easy off fume free (not really) oven cleaner, I use it all the time. It does not require heat.

    When scraping with a razor, do make sure you do it wet or else you'll scratch the surfice.

        The best stove top cleaner I have found is Cerama-Brite. Plus a razor blade, of course. Try not to let spills stay on too long. BTW, speaking of ceramic stoves, a warning: I once laid a hot steamy lid on my stove top and it created such a suction that it cracked the stove top. Lay a lid down so part of it is over the edge, with air underneath.

          My parents had a ceramic stove top for 35 years (they got one of the first). Never used anything but Bon Ami and it is still spotless.
