Care and cleaning of stainless steel
Special care and cleaning are required for maintaining the appearance of stainless parts. Please refer to
the table provided at the beginning of the General Care & Cleaning section in this Use & Care Manual.
Cleaning cooktop, grates, caps and burner heads
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier.
Because the gas burner are sealed, cleanups are
easy when spillovers are cleaned up immediately.
Do not remove any parts from the cooktop until they
have completely cooled and are safe to handle.
Do not use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Care and Cleaning
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult
soils and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave
on soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT
use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch.
Clean burner grates in the dishwasher and dry upon removal.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse
with a 1:1 solution of clean 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, then scrub with a soap-filled scouring
pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove all cleaners or the
porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use
spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
The holes in the burners of your cooktop must be kept clean at all times
for proper ignition and a complete, even flame. Clean the burner holes
routinely with a small gauge wire or needle and especially after bad
spillovers which could clog these holes.
To remove, clean and replace sealed burner units; follow the instructions
in General Care & Cleaning section under Cleaning Burners, Grates
and Trivets. For stubborn stains, scrub with soap and water or a mild
abrasive cleanser and damp cloth. Dry the burners thoroughly in a warm
oven for 30 minutes. Then replace them, making sure they are seated
and level. DO NOT put burner units in the dishwasher.
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 chlorines. 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.
Cleaning the cooktop
If a spill occurs on or in the recessed or countered
areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse
with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners on the cooktop. They can
scratch the cooktop. Completely rinse any mild
cleaners used from the surface or the cooktop may
become damaged during future heating.
