It is the glass that came with the stove. No marks on it to tell where Alaska bought it.

My glass will look just like that PRIOR to cleaning, but when I hit it with the damp newspaper, the water flashes to steam and takes that right off. If it's really dirty, I might have to go at it twice to get all the residue off as if the paper loads up, it just smears it around.

I don't do it with the stove really hot, I'll let it idle down until the fire is pretty minimal, otherwise the glass dries TOO fast.

That said, I am using NeoCeram glass bought locally for (gulp) $118.

I clean it every day when I take out the ash bucket. I don't burn real hard, maybe 20 to 30# a day max, so it doesn't get real dirty.

Someone posted a link an on-line supplier of this glass with really reasonable prices, about half of what I paid. I'll have to see if I can find it.

Looks like some kind of sulfur deposit, my Harman came with a razor blade in a handle, the stove instructions recommend you scrape it off. I'd check if you have the ceramic glass first though. My stove came with Robax ceramic glass. (

Hi Guys,
I have never found anything that will bring back glass that is used with coal stoves. The hasing will form on the glass no matter how hard you work. Then the spider webs will show. I found that treating the glass with the glass cleaners w/silicone does help and if you burn oiled coal that is also a big help. The oil soots the glass a bit and all the junk won't stick. The glass that we use is made in Germany (Schotts) and I don't know of any company in the US that is making stove glass. If someone offers you glass at a much lower price, you better think twice. Tempered glass is good up to about 500*, Schotts is good from -400* to 1400*. We install the glass that is made to do the job, so the safety issue is covered. I have been around the stove business from (I hate to say) 1978 and when you blow air into a fire you can forget about the glass.

Just an FYI on this subject. I took a good look at my glass tonight. My stove has been burning since this past Tuesday. After cleaning, I could also see some hazing, although nothing like smith10210's. I used the Rutlands on a damp towel and rubbed "vigorously" as suggested on the bottle. Took about 3 tries, but the glass is back to perfect. Maybe it just takes some elbow grease.
