How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth or paper towel. Dry with a clean cloth.
Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar
and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids directly
on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control panel
- excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not use other
liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels - they will damage
Wipe the control panel clean after each use. Before cleaning the control panel, turn all
controls to OFF and remove the control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the
shaft. Clean using hot, soapy water and a cloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the
cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water
in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. To replace knobs after
cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and
a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do
not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for
cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
