How to Clean
For general
cleaning,
use hot soapy water
and a cloth. For more dimcu[t
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 or dull 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,
pu[[ 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 fiat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.

and a dishcloth.
Rinse with clean
water
and 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
off: 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 dimcu[t
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

oven cleaners
on the cooktop.
