Christopher Matthews: Hey Mike, did you have to put much pressure down on the drill? I have a
smaller buffing tool and looks like the same stove as yours and so far not
having much success.
sjmain1: It does not remove the circle that surrounds each element? My top is
shocking and thinking of trying this but its shocking with burnt stuff over
the element circle. thanks
bithiah joshua: Hi after polishing and the scratches are not visible anymore, if I cleaned
it with cleaning spray would it appear again? Isit a permanent scratch
remover or just temporary.. what does a tiny scratch do to a stove top?
barstoolguru: sweet, and you didn't use a paint scrapper like some of the other morons
are saying to use
navispretheeba: cool, saved my deposit, what is the speed of the drill I should use for
this to work?
Lyricist1anda2: Thanks Mike for the tip. We're moving and the stove has to look perfect.
Also, I've learned by trial and error after once scratching my glasstop:
1. Never use pots or pans with circles of steel on their bottoms, on your
glasstop. Use smooth bottom pots and pans. Most cookware has the
raised/ridged steel bottoms, but keep looking. 2. Place your pot or pan on
the glasstop but never agitate them on the stovetop; leave them sit or they
could scratch...instead use a utensil to stir, etc. whatever's inside the
pot. I've used these 2 methods and have had no further scratches.
zirrusfox: fukin brilliant.
bypass666666: I used barkeepers friend cream (from UK). As another guy said I scratched
our brand new hob and it looked really awful. Buffed by hand with a lint
free cloth (knackering) and wiped with paper towel afterwards. Magic -
thanks for sharing.
Syeda Bukhari: Thanks, very useful video. I recently bought a second hand glass top stove.
I make Roti (bread) regularly in my home, after using this stove, I feel as
if it not heated enough to let me make roti :( I feel it's at least 4 to 5
points (according to the nob points) lesser than the electric stove. Am I
right? Or something wrong with the stove? It turns red, all of the stove
but I don't get the desired heat. How do I check if it's heating properly?
Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks
Bint Mohamed: Hey mike, my husband accidentally put foil on the glass cooktop and now it
is melted. What should I do? Will this technique help? At this point the
foil looks like it is melted in to the glass
oasisbeyond: I left it on for 5 hours... and now there's 3 invisible stains, it's like
it burned the paint underneath :(
christian londoño: great video man, thanks you save me a lot of money.
sam peterson: Thanks so much for your video,but first I was listening I though John
Corbett is talking,and it is unbelievable ,you need to go in radio or some
where so they can use your voice
Andy Delu: Nice tips!
Michelle Miller: Hi, I don't have an electric drill, is there something else I could use as
Jerry Lofton: My husband has used a Aluminum popcorn popper on the stove top. There are
black marks that look like the ceramic is gone. Could the be so or are
they just large scratches?
mattallsop: DUDE! You just saved my deposit... yesss
carrie willman: Mike, thanks for the tips. This is off topic, but where are you from? The
accent stumps me.
Angela Bdg: Hi Mike, what kind of buffer did you use? This is really not my element and
I am trying not to get the whole thing worse than it is now with a few
scratches... Also, you are using a drill right? Not a sander or sth of the
sorts. Thx again!
davorceta: Hey Mike, just switched from a gas stove to a ceramic-glass one. I only
cooked twice on it, some minor scratches or skid marks appeared. I didn't
move the pan while it was on it, just lifted and it left some marks. Are
they so sensitive or I'm doing something terribly wrong?
Chris Cavanaugh: Hi, ceramic stove top are the same as glass ones right? thanks
ejvideos07: Did you put your monster electric drill down on the other side of the
cooktop ??? No wonder you had scratches on it man !!
Seriously, thanks - I'll give it a go.
kim cser: Thank you so much. I am so grateful
suba071089: Hi.. From which store will I be able to buy the Lucas - metal polisher at
philadelphia? Would the products similar to Cerama Bryte or the weiman
glass top or MAAS metal polish work effectively on the scratches? And is it
possible to obtain the same result without using the buffing material or
the wheels but instead a cotton or paper towel? Thank you!
marknorthwest93: Wow Mike, that looks easy and end result is fantastic! I'm going to try
Dimos D: Hi thanks for your video! What buffing material do you suggest or where did
you get that wheel please? Thanks
Franco Graffi: Im gonna try it! Mi GF is really annoyed cause i scratched it last night!
Just Fish Sauce: Where do you get that fluffy spinner from?
Dayan P: Wooooooooow......that really just happened? !?!? Awesome tip. Thank you a
Athuall: BRILLIANT! This video was a life saver. Had scratched our ceramic hob in
our rented house, really wanted our deposit back with no deductions - now
my hob is spotless, buffed out scratches worse than in the demo video here.
Great technique - definitely recommend :D
star1312: Stoked to get this process going! I just scratched my range with jiffy
popcorn : /.....I didn't know!! Sooooo do you have any way to removed light
surface scratches on stainless steel fridge???
Steve Brooks: Thank you, I'll try that.
Kathy Bassinger: I recently left a copper bottom tea pot too long on the burner. Now I've
got a white ring that will not come out with the ceramic cleanter. I've
tried a glass scraper. Do you think the the buffer trick would work?
Steve Brooks: I wish this worked for my 3 month old Samsung the wife scratched! I tried
fist a polisher/buffer you would use to wax/buff the car with the cerama
bryte. That did nothing then I got a buffer wheel like yours to fit on my
high speed drill still no difference. It did not even take out light
scratches or slight white rings.
I thought maybe the Lucas metal polish might make a difference? What do you
think Mike? Any ideas? Thanks
edstar83: What sorcery is this?
Fearless Girl: WoW! Thank you!
Mike Shoesmith: Try it out... let us know how it goes!
Tim Orum: where did you get that buffing wheel? what is the brand?
rtrdad: I tried and it did not work. My cooktop has minor scratches and a haze on
one of the burners. I used Mother's Metal Polish and a buffing wheel with a
bonnet. Haze still there and i buffed for approximately 15 minutes
straight! I was really hoping this would work. Perhaps try another product
like Bartender's Friend.
Mike Shoesmith: HA! No... the entire surface had minor scratches. Somebody scratched it up
severely on that particular spot with a pot. But even if I DID do it myself
it's still pretty impressive!
Jim Myers: I tried it and it didn't work. It was scratched the day the bought the new
stove - first time used the oven, the aluminum baking plan was taken from
the oven and I guess slid across the stove-top as opposed to setting it
down. How sad .. was hoping your solution would work, but I assume my
scratch is just too deep. Following your steps did, however, make the
621america: Thanks for the tip Mike....
greenmarine5: wow...we have a whirpool Radiant range and I actually use steel wool to get
out the baked on food...it's 6 years old and not one scratch
lindah camacho: LUCAS? More like MAGIC LIQUID! I loved this video and the tip, will have to
get me some Lucas.
Pyrolonn: Did you use a key to create the scratches?
MrEmlyn3: Would this work n fire rated ceramic glass in a door????
Mike Shoesmith: Just approved your video response... thanks!
Mike Shoesmith: Canadian Tire... not sure the brand
Humphrey Yu: just did it... thanks... looks brand new again.. I had to use muscle
though... kinda did it impromptu but just like buffing the car :)
