RADIANT GLASS
Do not use steel wool, abrasive powder cleansers, chlorine
bleach, rust remover or ammonia because damage may occur.
Always wipe with a clean, wet cloth and dry thoroughly to avoid
streaking and staining.
Cooktop Cleaning Creme supplied with your cooktop should be
used regularly to help avoid scratches, pitting and abrasions, and
to condition the cooktop.
It can be purchased as a kit along with
the Cooktop Scraper. Ask for stock number 22-364-WX10X117
when reordering.
