Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Unfortunately this is not something you can clean I'm afraid. When a pot boils dry, the cooktop overheats and tiny pieces of ceramic in the top cooktop pop off giving a rough surface which is why you get a white outline. You can try to smooth it out as best as possible using soap and a very sharp razor blade at a slight angle to scrap the top as best you can. Other than that, the only way to make it look new again would be to replace the entire glass top.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
