Hobs are made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic and glass. Glass hobs offer a sleek accent to your kitchen, but utensils, pots and pans can scratch your glass hobs. The scratches can cause it to look old and dingy. Fortunately, you do not have to live with a scratched glass hob -- you can repair it with a few items.

  1. 1

    Allow the glass hob to cool completely before beginning the repair process.

  2. 2

    Dampen a sponge with warm soapy water. Wipe the glass hob with the sponge to remove debris and stuck-on food. Dampen a clean cloth with cool water. Rinse the hob by wiping with the damp cloth. Dry with a towel.

  3. 3

    Apply a drop or two of approved cleaning cream for your glass hob using the scrub sponge that was included with your stove.

  4. 4

    Buff the scratches with the scrub sponge for several seconds. If the scratches are still visible, continue with the remaining step.

  5. 5

    Apply a glass scratch remover onto a clean cloth. Rub the remover into the scratches for several minutes until the scratch is no longer visible.

Tips and warnings

  • Wipe spills off the glass hob as soon as possible.
  • Regular cleaning of the glass hob will keep it looking its best.
  • Do not slide pots or pans across the glass hob. This can scratch and damage the glass.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners or cleaning tools on your glass hob. Doing so will damage the glass.
