Good afternoon, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will help you today.

Whether or not you can remove the stain depends on what has happened to the surface. If it's just deposits from the bottom of a pan, transferred to the hotplate, then a recommended proprietary cleaner should remove them. Use whichever cleaner the hob manufacturer recommends. However, if the ceramic plate has actually burned, then there's nothing you can do about it. You can replace the glass if one is available, or replace the hob, or just live with it.


If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.
