I have a toaster oven with baked on grease on the glass door. I tried
soaking a piece of paper towel in Ammonia and placing it over the grease
stains overnight, but it did nothing. What next?
Strong caustics etch glass. Acids (except HF) do not. You can get
away with using with short contact times, making sure you wash all the
caustic off. BTW, one drop of caustic in your eye could blind you.
Make sure you use eye and skin protection when using.
Also, I've never had a problem with careful use of razor blade although
I would not use one on window glass.
My mother ruined a toaster oven trying to clean it. Here's what you
Carefully remove the glass, spray it (outside) with oven cleaner
standing upwind, wait 15 minutes, brush using a toothbrush, then rinse
with cold water. Repeat the procedure if needed. Wear rubber gloves,
old clothing, and eye-protection. Do not attempt to use oven cleaner
inside the toaster oven.
I have used a fresh SOS soap pad to clean my toaster oven glass for
years with NO ill effects. I don't bear down hard, and I think the
soap tends to act as a lubricant. I remove the glass door and so this
in the sink.

It's not, but close in hardness. Who knows the hardness of the crud
on the glass? I recommend a nylon net to clean the glass along with
lye. Use safety and caution when handling strong alkalines. You can
rinse the glass with white vinegar which cleans again while
neutralizing any lye residue.
