COOKTOP CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended Cleaning Creme to the
ceramic surface. A sample of that cleaning creme is supplied with your appliance and you will
find it in store. Clean and buff with a paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled
from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to help
prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop glass can cause metal markings
on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the cooktop has
cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal marks can become permanent if not removed
prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch the
cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop. Do not use your
cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the
cooktop surface without a pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the glass cooktop, they
may cause it to crack.
CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CERAMIC GLASS
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and
can chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a
paper towel to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the
cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue. Do not use the
towel you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
For heavy, burned on soil:
First, clean the surface as described above. Then, if soils remain,
protec your hand with a potholder and carefully scrape soils with a
metal razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the
surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning cream and buff
