CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CERAMIC GLASS
Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use scrub pad.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils must 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 illustrated on previous
page). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy or burned on soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic glass cooktop:
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal
and some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it
more difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia or
oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels, as they can
leave soil or lint on the cooktop which can burn and cause
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals.
Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If allowed to boil
dry, not only will the utensil be destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic
glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
