Because we believe in both simplicity and efficiency, we managed to condense our criteria into three highly comprehendible categories: power, application, and odor.
Once we had conducted all of our testings and had the scores in front of us, we were able to average out a score for every product we tested, and the final results of those scoring sessions were how we determined what products ultimately ended up winning out. But what criteria was used for each category?
Power: With regards to power, we were primarily concerned with how strong the glass cooktop cleaner was and whether you needed a whole bottle of it to clean the affected area in one sitting. If the formula was not concentrated or required an excessive amount of usage, we docked the product points in this particular category.
It should also be noted that we weighed this category much more heavily than the other two when we were undertaking our evaluations. This is because we do not believe that a consumer should have to buy multiple bottles of one product to be able to clean to a reasonable standard.
Application: For this category, we were mainly concerned about how easy it was to get the product out of the bottle and whether there were any defects with the bottle itself, primarily where the nozzle was concerned. Any defects in the packaging or shipping of the product were also noted in this category as well.
Odor: For the odor category, we wanted to let consumers know if the glass cooktop cleaner they were thinking about purchasing had an unpleasant or pungent odor to it while it was being used. If it did, we made a note of it and took points from the product in this category.
