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 burner grates, caps, heads and glass cooktop

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.
IMPORTANT
Do not use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Cleaning Recommendations
Cleaning Recommendation
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more diffi cult 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.
Before cleaning, turn all controls to OFF. Clean the glass as instructions in General
Care & Cleaning section under Cooktop Cleaning Maintenance.
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 diffi cult 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-fi lled 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 fl ame. 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 burner grates
The burner grates are dishwasher safe and may be
cleaned in the dishwasher. Remove any excessive
soils before placing in the dishwasher.
IMPORTANT
● For proper gas fl ow and ignition of the burners
— DO NOT allow spills, food, cleaning
agents or any other material to enter the gas
orifi ce opening.
● The cooktop is not removable. Do not attempt
to remove or lift the cooktop.
