I have a love/hate relationship with my ceramic stove top. While it doesn't have lots of places for food to drop like my old gas stove in Michigan, any liquid that falls on the burners (including water) turns into gross looking gunk that I can never really get clean (without chemicals and tons of scrubbing!).
However, since baking soda cleans everything, I decided to try it to clean my stove top, and it worked perfectly!
How to Clean Your Ceramic Stove Top with Baking Soda
First, I sprinkled baking soda all over my glass stove top, and then I covered it with a wet soapy towel and let it soak for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, I used the towels to scrub the baking soda paste on the stove. After it looked like the gunk was off, I used another washcloth to wipe all the baking soda off the top. Then, you can spray with DIY Glass Cleaner to get it all shiny.

Can You Use a Magic Eraser to Clean your Ceramic Stove Top?
If you don't feel like dealing with the mess of baking soda (although it's effective in absorbing grease and acting as a caustic agent against dried on gunk), you can also try to use a Kitchen Magic Eraser. It's super easy to use - just wet the sponge, clean, and then rinse the surface thoroughly. If you have streaks, you can use a glass cleaner afterwards.
