Cooktop maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to
maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply some of
the glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner supplied with your new
appliance. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch
cleaning 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
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 or
dirty bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.
Do not:
• Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.
• Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom;
replace with clean cookware before using.
• Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in
the kitchen.
• Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.
• Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop,
they may cause it to crack.
Cooktop cleaning
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are
turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly
to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire
cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned
thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of glass-ceramic cooktop cleaner directly
to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as
needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop
for any other purpose.
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 clean.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled
or melted onto the 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 illustrated). Allow cooktop to cool,
and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
