Ceramic Glass Cooktop
(some models) (continued)
Foil and Aluminum
1) Aluminum foil
Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use under any circumstances.
2) Aluminum utensils
The melting point of aluminum being much lower than that of other metals, care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans
are used. If allowed to boil dry, not only will the utensil be ruined, but also permanent damage in the form of breakage, fusing
or marking may affect the ceramic glass surface.
1. Do not slide utensils across cooktop surface in any circumstance, doing so may scratch or
metalmark the cooktop surface.
2. AVOID using bleach and don't use ammonia to clean the ceramic surface.
3. Do not put plastic items on warm cooking areas.
4. Never slide oven racks across cooktop surface. They may scratch or metalmark the cooktop.
5. If cooktop should break, do not use cooktop or attempt to clean it. Call your authorized
service technician immediately.
6. Never usea trivet or metal stand between the cooking utensil and the ceramiccooktop. The ceramic
surface may be scratched, metal marked or etched by such items.
7. Sugaryspills can cause pitting of your cooktop surface. Therefore, you must begin cleaning the spills
while the cooktop is still hot. Use caution when following the steps below.
a) Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
b) Wearing an oven mitt, use a razor blade scraper to scrape the hot spill out of the cooking zone
to a cooler area on the cooktop.
c) Allow the cooktop to cool.

NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green when the element
will be turned off. This phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its original white color after it has completely
cooled down. (White glass cooktops only).
