We cook 4-5 times a day using our induction stove, resulting in a lot of scratches and spots on the surface.

Is there any super smart way to remove the scratches?



This may be helpful: I use a combination of apple cider vinegar and baking soda, I'm afraid the ratio is "until it forms a thin paste", rather than anything more specific/scientific. Apply with paper kitchen towel, leave for 5 minutes, then scrub with a nylon scrubbing pad. Then wipe off with damp paper towels until all is gone.

  • David, Are you saying that this removed the scratches?

  • It's been the most effective way to remove all kinds of imperfections, though some deep scratches may be more difficult to deal with. Sep 18 '17 at 7:53
  • I had a computer screen that looked completely scratched. I wanted to apply one of these filler compounds and in preparation I cleaned it with isopropanol. Turned out there where no actual scratches on the screen but plenty of skid marks that just looked like scratches. So this 'solution' although not addressing the scratch problem might actually work by removing marks that look like scratches but actually aren't any.

Easiest thing is to put down a thin silicone rubber pad or pot holder to prevent scratches. The EMF should go through a thin pad without loss and without heating it. The pad will get as hot as the bottom of the pan, though, so don't let the pan overheat by boiling dry.

I believe your induction stove is covered with some kind of glass. You could try to use one of glass polishing techniques, e.g using cerium oxide powder.

Of course this glass may be harder than standard glass, but still it might be worth trying. And here is a movie that shows how to remove scratches from glass using this powder.

  • I think your answer provides the only solution to actually removing scratches, although you might have to use appropriate sandpaper to get rid of the deeper scratches first. Using materials to fill scratches on a hob where the material gets very hot might not be the best idea. But maybe someone knows of a suitable filler for this?

I think you can not remove scratches but cleaning oven with an onion or lemon will help you to keep you oven clean while making no scratches.

  1. it is healthy no chemicals
  2. easy to find and cheapest way
  3. with lemon there is chance to have a beautiful smell

Lemon cleaning

  • The question asks about cleaning an induction hob, not an oven.
