COOKTOP CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended Cleaning Creme to the
ceramic surface. A sample of that cleaning creme is supplied with your appliance and it is
available in store. Clean and buff with a paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled
from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help
prevent scratches and abrasions.
CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CERAMIC GLASS
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and
can chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
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 future
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, they may cause it to crack.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop.
Use a paper towel to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the
cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the towel
you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, if soils remain,
carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper
at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with
cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
