Glass cooktop stoves are either a beautiful addition to a kitchen or an embarrassing site if you just finished cooking. As a mom of 5 kids, I am always cleaning the cooktop. My arm muscles prove that. The arrival of the Dremel Versa PC10 4V Max power cleaner kit caught my interest immediately. I had my doubts because I am a strong believer in elbow grease, but was ready to test it out. It was perfect timing, a meal of homemade Fettuccine Alfredo where the noodles boiled over and so did the sauce. YUCK, the glass cooktop was disgusting.
Opening the box, the contents included the main Dremel Versa tool that fit into my hand very comfortably. It weighs in at 1.9 lbs and is 3.5” in length, 10” wide, and 10.25” tall. This size makes it easy to store. The box also includes 3 different pads, the scrub brush, the cover, and the charger for the lithium-ion battery. These allow for many options while cleaning. In this first run, the non-scratch pad and eraser pad were used. I charged the tool and was ready to scrub. At a list price of $49.98, impressive results were expected.

Dremel Versa Features and Use
First, a WARNING: Please put down the splash guard before using the tool. This is a no-brainer, but I was distracted and turned on the Dremel Versa with 2,200 RPM’s and made a huge mess. That was not the Dremel Versa’s fault, hence straight operator error. Just wanting to save you from the cleanup. Second, after quickly lowering the splash guard, spraying a little water to mix my stove top cleaner, the scrubbing began.
The Versa only required holding on and gently guiding the Dremel Versa along my cooktop. It took no strength but quickly had my stove top covered and scrubbed. Next, I stopped the Dremel Versa with the convenient power button on the top of the tool, switch pads from the non-scratch pad to the eraser pad with the quick hook and loop interface, spray a little water and begin with the eraser pad. This mode was used to shine the cooktop after cleaning. Last, I stopped the Dremel Versa for the last time and took a microfiber towel to wipe the excess cleaner off. The results sparkle.
The Dremel Versa has found a permanent location in my home. You might call me greedy, but this is not allowed to relocate to the shop. It made me a believer and I need quick access to it. My DH (darling husband) often finds uses for the tools I love and I never see them again. The Dremel Versa was able to clean and shine my cooktop better than my normal elbow grease. I did have to go over some of the pesty messes 2 or 3 times with minimal pressure, but I would have gone over it 4-5 times scrubbing it myself without the Dremel Versa.
I love that I can charge the battery and just start cleaning. So often, tools have too many parts that require massive storage usage and time to put together. The Dremel Versa is small and compact, but very powerful. Now, if you will excuse me, I can’t wait to try this out on my shower.
