    I've been using hob brite and metal scraper to get this hardened carbon stuff off hob. It's been there three years. Am I correct to rub hob brite on then scrape it all off? Taking ages. I've scratched glass a bit, is that a problem? 15709049739448741434984827686816.jpg

    Use this on it (on pic)? I think oven price in pic is more for the insides though.

    Or just change blade on scraper and keep scraping perhaps. I just thought oven brite would have broken this carbon stuff out more easily without a need for hours using metal scraper

    The scraper will leave scratches everywhere! Try a bit of oven cleaner on one patch and see if it works...

    It didn't work. I got fed up and used boiling water with metal scraper. I've heard of other people using them
