Cleaning Recommendations for the Ceramic Glass Cooktop
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.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue
Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly,
leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a 3M Scotch-Brite®
Blue Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the sponge you use to clean the
cooktop for any other purpose.
Care and Cleaning of Stainless Steel
Some models are equipped with stainless steel exterior parts. Special care and cleaning are required for maintaining the
appearance of stainless parts. Please refer to the table provided at the beginning of the General Care & Cleaning section
in this Use & Care Guide.
Care & Cleaning
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.

any scrub pad other than a 3M Scotch-Brite® Blue Multi-Purpose No
Scratch Scrub Sponge.

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
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and
some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more
difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or
oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can leave
soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause discoloration.
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
• Aluminum foil
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use under any

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.

fusing to, or marking it.
