Don't worry, it will become etched and cloudy some day.

Funny how this topic comes up from time to time and all the new tricks each time! Thank you all! However I have tried them all and although early on I was cocky and stated I would NEVER let the glass in MY new stove get like that...... I gave up after trying all the hints and tricks :)

Heading towards the end of our first season and we are now "happy" with our orange glow! We talk about how much better it is to have the diffused glow rather than that nasty bright flame in our faces. O yes that sucked.......

......I miss it :(

I tried Stan's idea of using Gig-a-Loo. Seems to really work very well.
I can now clean off the glass with just water and apply Gig-a-Loo to
get a nice looking glass. The main reason for the dirty glass is the
constant stream of fly ash shot at the door.
Here is a solution that I came up with to trap and burn some of the
fly ash. It needs to be a little longer to get the ash during high fire,
but it stops most of the bits that head toward the door. The holes
fill with ash after a while, but when I clean the glass, just a light tap
with an ash shovel knocks it all loose. During high fire, it glows like
a kerosene wick.

looks good how often do you clean it? I tried a couple od other style baffels but none worked well enough.

Thanks, Stan

I still clean the glass every day.
I wipe with water and then Gig-a-loo. ( no odor my assssss )
This summer I'll buff out the glass with polishing compound
and improve the baffle.
I can't get over how well this stove works.

I gave up months ago, It clouds up and etches pretty fast....As long as I can see the orange glow in the Basement, I know it's still burning!

"Single edge razor blade in the appropriate holder works like a charm. Seriously, this works for me just like scraping paint off a window!"

Right on!

That's what I did also, then used the rutland cleaner and my keystoker glass looks like new after a season of burning.

I am having a piece of steel painted up, with hi temp stuff, to look like a beautiful coal fire and will get rid of the glass. I can't even see through mine any more. as long as heat is coming from the vent I know it is good. it is in the basement anyway.
