I start my stove using matchlight charcoal and put tinfoil over the glass before lighting it. I just wrap two pieces of tinfoil over the door and close it to keep the foil in place. My glass stays clean as matchlight tends to leave a blue grey ash on everything.

Have you tried it without tinfoil on the window? My glass stays clean as a whistle w/o tinfoil.

I picked up some stove glass cleaner from Tractor Supply Company. It works wonders. Put a little on a rag and wipe the black crud right off the glass. Not sure if putting cold cleaner on hot glass would cause it to crack so try at your own risk while it's hot.
