MAJOR CLEANING LATER.

For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difﬁ cult soils and
built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to
60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of
these materials; they can scratch.
Clean burner grates in the dishwasher and dry upon removal.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a
1:1 solution of clean water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difﬁ cult spots with an
ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp
cloth, then scrub with a soap-ﬁ lled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO
NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
The holes in the burners of your cooktop must be kept clean at all times for proper
ignition and a complete, even ﬂ ame. Clean the burner holes routinely with a small gauge
wire or needle and especially after bad spillovers which could clog these holes.
To remove, clean and replace sealed burner units; follow the instructions in General
Care & Cleaning section under Cleaning the Burner Grates, Burner Caps, Burner Heads.
For stubborn stains, scrub with soap and water or a mild abrasive cleanser and damp
cloth. Dry the burners thoroughly in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then replace them,
making sure they are seated and level. DO NOT put burner units in the dishwasher.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and
a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do not
use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for
cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
