How to clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of
vinegar and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a
soft cloth. Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. do not spray
liquids directly on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of
water on the control panel - excess water on the control area may cause damage to
the appliance. Do not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or
some paper towels - they will damage the finish.
Wipe the control panel clean after each use. Before cleaning the control panel, turn
all controls to OFF and remove the control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight
off the shaft. Clean using hot, soapy water and a cloth. Be sure to squeeze excess
water from the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the
controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance.
To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft;
then push the knob into place.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water
and a cloth. do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or
chlorine. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are
especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners
from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a
1:1 solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with
an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and
a damp cloth, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry
with a clean cloth or paper towel. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become
damaged during future heating. do not use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
