Scratches on Glass Cooktop

cassis | May 16, 200905:17 AM     20

The surface of my new glass cooktop is scratched and pitted after only 6 month's use. The manual warns against sliding pans over the surface--but is this material designed for people who don't actually cook? Have I actually dented the surface or am I seeing a metal residue from the pans themselves? I've tried cleaning it with a paste, but no improvement.

This may not be relevant, but the stove is a new GE, and my previous Kenmore glass cooktop survived for ten years with very little pitting and scratching. Any suggestions on how to remove the damage and avoid it in future?
