Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning & 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 CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface. Clean and buff with a non abrasive cloth or pad. 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.
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 use.
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,
or they may crack it.
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.
Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or
a Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop
is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the sponge you use to clean the cooktop for any
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.
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use any scrub pad other than a
Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto
the ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the
cooktop surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After turning the
surface elements OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt
and scrape the soil from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to
cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use under any
• Aluminum utensils
Since the melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other
metals, care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used. Pans
that boil dry may permanently damage cooktop by breaking, fusing to, or
