Daily Cleaning Techniques
Using the Razor Blade Scraper
Use only heat-safe dishes.
Use reversible rack, in low position to raise cooking container from direct con-
tact with bottom of drawer if desired.
Warm on setting appropriate for cooking container.
Check dish temperature during warming period.
Place empty plates or dishes in a cold warming drawer. Do not preheat
drawer prior to placing dishes.
Do not use any cleaner on glass while surface is hot; use only the
razor blade scraper. Resulting fumes can be hazardous to your health.
Heating the cleaner can chemically attack and damage the surface.
Regular, daily care using the Cooktop Cleaning Creme will protect the surface
and make it easier to remove food soil and water spots.
The ceramic glass cooking surface is a durable material resistant to impact
but not unbreakable if a pan or other object is dropped on it.
Never cook food directly on the glass.
Avoid placing a wok support ring, trivet or other metal stand on glass surface.
Do not use the glass surface as a cutting board.
Do not slide cookware across the cooking surface; it may scratch the glass.
Do not place wet pans on the glass surface.
Care is easy when preventative steps are taken. For example, apply a small
amount of Cooktop Cleaning Creme (packaged with range) on a daily basis. This
provides a protective film that makes it easy to remove water spots or food spat-
ters. The temperature of the cooking surface reduces the protective qualities of
this cleaner. It must be reapplied before each use. Use a clean cloth and apply
Cooktop Cleaning Creme before each use to remove dust or metal marks that can
occur on the counter level surface between uses.
1. Clean the surface when completely cool with the Cooktop Cleaning Creme.
Exception: Remove dry sugar, sugar syrup, tomato products and milk imme-
diately with the razor blade scraper (See Cooktop Care Chart, next page).
2. Wipe off spatters with a clean, damp sponge or paper towel. Rinse and dry.
Use white vinegar if smudge remains; rinse.
3. Apply a small amount of the Cooktop Cleaning Creme. When dry, buff surface
with a clean paper towel or cloth.
Use the scraper to remove dried or baked on foods. Hold the scraper at a 30°
angle. Move it over the soil to lift it off of the cooktop. Finish with a clean, damp
sponge or paper towel. Apply vinegar if smudge remains and rinse.
