Cleaning
Correct and consistent cleaning is essential to maintaining
your ceramic-glass
cooktop.

are not removed,
they may be burned onto the surface of the
cooktop and cause permanent
discoloration.
Daily Cleaning

Allow cooktop
surface to cool.

Wipe up spills and spatters using a clean paper towel. Always use a new,
clean paper towel when cleaning the ceramic-glass cooktop.

Rub a few drops of a recommended
ceramic-glass cooktop cleaning cream
onto soiled area using a clean, damp paper towel. Buff with a dry paper
towel until all soil and cream are removed.
Frequent cleaning leaves a
protective
coating
of silicone which helps in preventing
scratches and
abrasions. Clean surface with the cooktop cleaning cream after each use.

Rinse with another clean damp, paper towel.
Buff dry with a dry paper
towel.
For heavy, burned-on soil:

scraper at a 30 ° angle to the cooktop.

Apply cooktop cleaning cream as described for normal soil.
5.
If any soil remains, repeat the steps listed above. After all soil has been
removed, polish the entire surface with the cooktop cleaning cream.
For sugary spillovers:
Sugary spills 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.
I.
Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
2.
Wearing an oven mitt, use a razor blade scraper to scrape the hot spill out

to clean later.
Sponges, cloths or dish towels. Lint or soil remaining on the cooktop from
a cloth or sponge can burn and cause discoloration.
Anything
that may melt (plastics, aluminum
foil).
Cleansers other than a recommended
ceramic-glass
cooktop
cleaning
cream.
Chlorine bleach, ammonia,
hydrofluoric
