and proper cleaning
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface. Clean and buff with a non abrasive cloth or pad. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The
special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause metal
markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after
the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become
permanent if not removed prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch
the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything
metal or glass across the cooktop. Do
not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook
foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard
objects on the glass cooktop, or they may crack it.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
[chem ca y damage the ceram c g ass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or a Multi-Purpose No
Scratch Scrub Sponge to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no
residue. Do not use the sponge you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, if soils remain, 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
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use any scrub pad
other than a Multi-Purpose No Scratch Scrub Sponge.
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 if
not 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 illus-
trated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
