General Care & Cleaning
Cleaning Your Cooktop
Before cleaning any part of the cooktop, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the cooktop is COOL. REMOVE
SPILLOVERS AND HEAVY SOILING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. REGULAR CLEANINGS NOW WILL REDUCE THE
DIFFICULTY AND EXTENT OF A MAJOR CLEANING LATER.

Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your Ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the ﬁ rst time, apply the
recommended CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to the
ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-
scratch cleaning pad. This will make cleaning easier when
soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream
leaves a protective ﬁ nish on the glass to help prevent
scratches and abrasions.
How to Clean
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 or dull the ﬁ nish.
Clean with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and 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 off from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
See Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning & Maintenance in this Use & Care Guide.
For general cleaning, the grease ﬁ lter can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the
cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface.
These marks should be removed immediately after the
cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream.
Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough
bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface. Do not
slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do not
use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the
kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the cooktop surface
without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the
glass cooktop, because they may cause it to crack.
