use a new, sharp razor in your scraper.
Burned-on food soil, dark streaks, and
Metal marks: Iridescent stain
Hard Water Spots - Hot cooking liquids
dripped on surface
Surface scratches - Small scratches are to
be expected on the glass surface, but do not
affect cooking. In time, small scratches will
become smoother and much less noticeable
with daily use of the Cooktop Cleaning Creme.

1. Pull out and off to remove both knob and bezel. Wipe with hot, soapy cloth,
rinse and dry. Do not soak.
2. To replace, position knob on top of bezel hold spring tight. Place both knob

Glass cleaners which contain ammonia or chlorine bleach. These ingredients
may permanently etch or stain the cooktop.
Oven cleaners such as Easy Off® may etch the cooktop surface.
Metal scouring pads and scrub sponges such as Scotch Brite® can scratch

about 30 minutes.
Use a plastic scrubber and Cooktop Cleaning Creme® or use the
razor blade scraper. Rinse and dry.
Use a soapy sponge or cloth to remove grease; rinse thoroughly
and dry. Apply Cooktop Cleaning Creme®.
Pans with aluminum, copper or stainless steel bases may leave
marks. Treat immediately after surface has cooled with Cooktop
Cleaning Creme. If this does not remove the marks, try a mild
abrasive (Bon Ami®, Soft Scrub® without bleach) with a damp-
ened paper towel. Rinse and reapply creme. Failure to remove
metal marks before the next heating makes removal very difficult.
The minerals in some water can be transferred onto the surface
and cause stains. Use undiluted white vinegar, rinse and dry.
Recondition with Cooktop Cleaning Creme.
Apply Cleaning Creme before using to remove sand-like grains
and grit such as salt and seasoning.

and dry before use. Use recommended Cooktop Cleaning Creme
daily on the cooktop.
