The Hob Top
Clean the hob while it is still warm.
Never use aggressive or abrasive agents, such as oven sprays, stain or
rust removers, scouring powders, or sponges with an abrasive effect.
Special cleaning agents are available from department stores.
Slight, non-burnt soilage can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Burnt
soilage has to be removed with a damp cloth.
Light metallic stains (aluminium residues) can be removed from the
cooking zone with a glass hob cleaning agent such as Vitroclen when
Sugar solutions, food stuffs with a high sugar content must be removed
immediately. If this type of soilage is not removed immediately it can
cause irreparable damage to the glass surface. When the surface has
cooled wipe over with a damp cloth and Vitroclen.
Before using any detergent or cleaning agent on the glass top, ensure
they are recommended by the manufacturer for use on glass hobs.
Do not apply any cleaning agents to hot cooking zones. Ensure any
residues are wiped off before the cooking zones are used again.
If scratches or cracks are noticed on the glass top,
immediately disconnect the appliance from the electrical
supply, contact your local Service Force Centre and avoid
using the appliance until it has been repaired.
Keep all objects and materials which can melt away from the cooking
surface, e.g. plastics, aluminium foil.
Care should be taken when preparing food or drinks containing
sugar. If anything of this nature accidentally comes into contact with
the glass surface it must be removed immediately while still hot and
wiped away to avoid damage to the surface.
