Heck....I just open the door and rub the inside of the glass once a week with wadded up newspaper and then just chuck the wad on the coals when I'm done.
Presto cleanso!

Try Turtle Wax compound in the green tub. Works really good and cost less then $2.00 at Wally World.

The glass on the front of my stove was really pitted and cloudy. I couldn't find anything that would clean it. I thought I had nothing to lose so I took a piece of 150 sandpaper to it. It worked great!

Gary, I tried the newspaper trick, it was a no-go for me. This was on a new piece of glass in a LeisureLine Pioneer burning only about a 1.5" fire, just above an idle.

Mark, I have some car cleaner/polish, I'll give it a try, I assume only on a cool/cold glass surface??

I may try rubbing compound too....

It's tough stuff! 150 grit sandpaper, wet/dry type??

The Rutland ceramic stove top cleaner works great (Home Depot). Even on hot glass it cuts the fly ash and leaves a perfectly clean surface. I tried the rubbing compund, definitely doesn't work on hot glass!

My next step is to install a stainless fine mesh screen in front of the glass like the new Alaska stoves. Then I won't have to clean it as often.

Just love watching that blue flame! :lol:

I was in the shop looking for something, and ran across my can of SemiChrome polish, used for polishing the nickel and brass trim on old cars, and antiques. It can be used to polish silver as well.

On cold but opaque glass, I just applied the liquid polish, and rubbed it around and wiped it off, the glass was clean as new. I had tried a razor blade, newspaper and was thinking about an abrasive pad, but didn't want to scratch the glass.

I'll try to find my car polish with wax in it, and see if it works as well as this product did.

I have the clean glass system from Alaska which has the split pane glass. The system also comes with a piece of 316L stainless 12/12 mesh screen which goes between the glass and the stoker. As for the split glass it is useless. My stove is new this year and I clean the glass at leat twice a week and it is already starting to get etched. The screen helps to keep the amount of fly on the glass down but its not worth the $100 bucks extra it costs.

Thanks for the info. I guess I won't add that feature anytime soon. I have the screen too but for some reason I don't use it.

For all of you beer drinkers out there that have a home draft system and use a product called beer line cleaner to clean the tubing on your draft system. Have you used the beer line cleaner to clean your glass? I use it on the glass of my corn stove and it works great but I will not be able to try it on my coal stove until I get it installed next fall. If you have some beer line cleaner it may be worth a try.

Hi Coal:
I had been warned not to use vinegar as the acid residue combined with intense heat will etch into the glass and cause hazing.

I use the product from Wienmans..I believe it is called stop top polish..it has a high temp silicone sealant in it that makes the next cleaning easy

I get it at wal mart in the cleaning section....

I am not sure the product name spelling is correct...but found at wal mart..

I have a post here on the correct name
