Cleaning off the induction cooktop before and after each use will
help keep it free from stains and provide the most even heating.
For more information, see "General Cleaning" section.
Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a
heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on the
cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass could
break when the lid is removed.
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills
while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are allowed to
cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can cause
pitting and permanent marks.
To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware
across the cooktop.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any part
of the entire cooktop.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as a
cutting board.

area. Cookware should not extend more than ½" (1.3 cm)
outside the area.

energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or
dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor
cooking results.

across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler,
no space or light should be visible between it and the
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.
