 Some of you may know we had to buy a new stove the day after Thanksgiving.  We went to Spencer's and bought a new ceramic top, black stove.  I thought it would look nice with my dark granite counter tops and I also thought it would be easy to take care of and keep clean. 

WRONG!!! 

This stove has been the hardest thing to keep clean!   It's a vicious circle!  Every time the stove is used, it has to be cleaned.  Everything leaves it's mark and I find myself buffing this stove top every single time it's used.  
I hate this thing~but I'm also stuck with it. 
Just a warning~don't ever, ever, ever buy a one. 
No matter how nice it looks....You'll always be going in circles trying to keep it clean!  
Once it's cleaned it does look pretty good...........
but it will be a vicious circle...I promise! 
The End

I have an ancient coil stove for that exact reason (I saw how hard my mother works to keep her's fancy) and I have a 1990's white fridge too! Exactly Angie!~ Good luck keeping it clean, but if it's the same as your tile, you're great at keeping it shiny & new!! :-)

You've got your mother's genes and would work hard on ANY stove to make sure it was Good Housekeeping-perfectly-presentable anyway! I love your kitchen and that black shiny stove! But, I understand - I had a white smooth cook top once and it, too, was a pain!
