Ceramic Glass Surface

Wiping off the cooktop before and after each use will help keep it
free from stains. For more information, see "General Cleaning"
Do not store jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a
heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the
ceramic glass.
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills and
soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool down
slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the spills
while the surface is still warm. If sugary spills are allowed to
cool down, they can adhere to the cooktop and can cause
pitting and permanent marks.
Do not allow objects that could melt, such as plastic or
aluminum foil, to touch any part of the entire cooktop.
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.
