    is it white is it stainless steel what??

    tried spontex?? its scratchy though so it might take the paint off if its a white hob

    sandpaper works a treat as well if its stainless steel just on the burned bits though

    if the worse comes to the worst you could try some paint stripper painted on with a kids paint brush

    how long did you leave the biological powder mix on for ??

    its just welded on. any other ideas anyone! I'm at my wits end!!
    my friend has jsut blasted my kitchen for me including a very old casserole dish - glazed white pottery thing. he used mr muscle oven cleaner on it and its come up lovely. not sure if it would work well on the hob or not but might be worth a try. are you leaving the products to really soak into the stains?

    mines white enamal too.
    I left the bio powder on for a good hour or so.

    I did try an aggie and kim trick of using crunched up foil but it scratched it, so i'm not sure about using sandpaper. what is spontex?

    I'll try heating the hob I think?

    cheers

    I use the Mr Muscle kitchen cleaner on my hob, leave to soak for five minutes and wipe off with kitchen towel. As its stainless steel I then give it a quick spray of Windowlene and it comes up lovely.

    was it the foam over cleaner that you would normally use inside the oven ndnot on the hob or was it the liquid spray for cleaning the surfaces?

    Re: how to clean the hob
    you would need to leave the bio powder solution (very strong) on overnight at least

    try it it should soften it and make it easy to lift off

    Re: how to clean the hob
    Mr Muscle foam spray oven cleaner will usually get off difficult stains on the hob. May need to leave on for some time, even sometimes chipping away gently with a knife after cleaning and then reapplying the oven cleaner. Need to be careful of pilot lights though.

    Lakeland sell a product called something like grill-a mate/ovenmate can't remember
    It's dear but is fantastic stuff.

    Re: how to clean the hob
    In desperation I paid good money for a bottle of Oven Pride (Asda stock it). It comes with a huge bag, you put the oven trays in it overnight and watch the burned on crud just melt away. There are a few stubborn spots but I'm happy.

    I would recommend trying some of this on your hob, but perhaps do a patch test to make sure it doesn't melt the enamel or something.

    Hiya

    I used the Avon skin so soft bath oil stuff as suggested in another link with loads of uses for the stuff. i think the link was something to do with Avon SSS & mosquitos, and it cleaned off all those burned on stains and black marks a treat, just sprayed a bit onto a paper towel and gave it a rub, all gone. ;D
