Has anyone tried polish or is there any method to make my front glass look somehwat new agian? There is a cloudy white haze on most of the ceramic glass. I tried cleaning it and using stove top polish with little luck.

Mine is a dark chocolate brown coloring. I've tried lava soap with steel wool. Rouge and buffing wheel. And with a razor blade. I've only been able to lighten the color a slight amount but able to see through it better.

Once the brown film gets on the glass, it's almost impossible to remove. As I posted in the other thread it's easy to clean once the wax coating is on it, however I started with new glass.

After 2-3 months, mine clouds up and that's about it, I still keep it clean, but still very hazy.

I read the other thread. Basically there isn't much that ca be done short of polishing the glass periodically. I think mine is too far gone for that.
