Ceramic glass surface

Your cooktop is designed for easy care. However,
you need to maintain your ceramic glass surface
differently than you would standard porcelain or
glass surfaces. Foods spilled directly on the cooktop
will not burn off. You should keep the surface dust
free and soil free before heating.
The surface has been prepolished at the factory for
improved protection and easier cleaning. The
Cooktop Polishing Creme included with your
cooktop, paper towels or a sponge, and a single-
edge razor blade in the holder are all you need to
clean your cooktop. For proper cleaning methods,
please review "Cleaning tips" later in this section.
Follow them each time you use your cooktop. This will
ensure you get the best performance out of your
cooktop, as well as preserve that uniquely elegant look.
NOTE: Let the surface cool before cleaning.
To avoid damaging the surface, follow these
instructions:
• Remove sugar spills and soils from the cooktop
while the surface is still warm to avoid pitting on
the surface.
• Do not use steel wool, plastic cleaning pads, gritty
powdered cleansers, chlorine bleach, rust remover,
ammonia, or glass cleaning products with ammonia.
These could damage the cooktop surface.
Cleaning tips
What to use:
