Karen Taylor wrote: “I was in the exact same position the other day, second use of hob and milk stuck like lava. Astonish hob cleaner and a hob scraper tool kept at 30 degrees. Very patient, careful job, and mine’s like new again. Good luck!”

Lisa McDiarmid commented: “You can buy a little scraper from eBay for about £3, they work great, just do it a layer at a time.”

Others advised Hob Brite too. Michele James said: “Hob Brite heat rings up just so as they are warm to touch, cover with Hob Brite with scourer, not too hard as don’t want to scratch leave it to dry with the Hob Brite on it.

“It goes sort of like powdered at the edges scourer again once dry, then use damp cloth to wipe off then buff with window cleaner and soft cloth will come up a treat.”

Emma Paterson added: “I use Hob Brite which is great, and get a glass scraper.”

Karen Hilton recommended a hob protector, saying: “When you’ve sorted it, I bought a hob protector from Lakeland. It’s not cheap, but the sheet fitted our hob perfectly and you just wash it in soapy water and wipe the hob if any spills.”

Linda Hodt said: “I use neat washing up liquid gently rubbed in. Leave for a while then buff up.”

Interestingly, Claire Connochie advised a natural method of cleaning the hob. She said: “Happened to our brand-new hob too (water spilled over from pan) and a bicarbonate of soda and vinegar paste worked wonders!”
