    How can I get enamel off heating element
    I have a problem here. I left kettle on the electric stove for too long:( All the water boiled out & as a result the enamel from the kettle melted onto the heating element of the stove. Now I have enamel on the heating element. Any idea how I can get it out ?
    Thank you so much. Your help could save my life : I did it in somebody else's house, where I'm supposed to keep an eye on everything. Please, heeeeelp :)

    Is this a glass top stove or a coil stove? If it is a coil stove (black coil you put the pot on) they can be replaced. Make sure the coil (burner) is off, lift a little and pull the coil out. Take it to Lowe's, Home Depot, etc and buy a replacement. Take the model and serial # of the stove w/ you also.
    If it's a glass top stove, you can try cleaners for that type of surface and a razor blade to scrape the enamel.
