Grates are made of porcelain-coated steel. They can be cleaned at the
sink with soap and water or in the dishwasher. To clean baked on soil,
place a damp soapy paper towel over the grate and let stand for 30
minutes. Use a non-abrasive plastic pad to scour stubborn soil.
NOTE: Never operate burner without a grate in place. To protect the
porcelain finish on the grate from excessive heat, never operate
surface burner without a cooking utensil on the grate. It is normal for
grates to lose their shine over a period of time.
Wash with soap and water. Use a glass cleaner and a soft cloth to
remove fingermarks or smudges. Do not use oven cleaners, abrasive
or caustic agents. They will damage the finish.
CAUTION: Protect aluminum gas tubing from exposure to caustic
cleaners such as oven cleaners.
Protect the oven bottom by (1) using large enough cookware to
prevent boilovers; (2) place a piece of aluminum foil, that is slightly
larger than the cookware, on the lower rack. NEVER place foil directly
on the oven bottom as foil may melt onto oven bottom. Protect oven
bottom against acid spills (milk, cheese, tomato, lemon juice, etc.) or
sugary spills (pie filling) as they may pit or discolor the oven bottom.
See porcelain enamel for additional information.

or soap filled scouring pad. Rinse and dry.

scratch or marr finish.
NOTE: To prevent staining or discoloration, wipe up fat, grease or
acid (tomato, lemon, vinegar, milk, fruit juice, marinade) immediately
with a dry paper towel or cloth.
Clean porcelain with soap and water; rinse. Use cleansing powders or
a plastic scouring pad to remove stubborn soil. Wipe acid or sugar

porcelain. Do not use metallic scouring pads as they will scratch the
To make cleaning the oven easier, place 1/2 cup household ammonia
in a shallow glass container and leave in a cold oven overnight. The
ammonia fumes will help loosen the burned on grease and food. Oven
cleaners can be used on the porcelain oven only. Follow
manufacturer's directions. If oven cleaner was used, thoroughly rinse
oven cavity and capillary tube which is located at the top of the oven.
