General Care & Cieani
If SOilSremain, 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.
iMPORTANT NOTE: Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur ifyou use an
abrasive type scratch pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically
designed for ceramic glass cooktop.
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 ifnot 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 heaw or burned on soils.
(See Fig. 26):
• Do not use abrasive cleaners
pads, such as metal and
some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop,
making it more
• Do not use harsh cleaners,
such as chlorine
as they may etch or discolor
• 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
,, Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals.
Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If allowed to boil
dry, not only will the utensil be destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic
glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
