Cooktop Cleaning & 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 cooktop cleaning creme to the ceramic surface (visit
www.frigidaire.com for replacment cleaner). Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch cleaning pad. 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 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
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough or dirty bottoms
can mark or scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal
or glass across the cooktop. Do not use cookware with dirt or dirt
build up on bottom; replace with clean cookware before using. 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 ceramic glass cooktop, they may
cause it to crack.
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.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
If soils remain, 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 surface clean.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use an
abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically
designed for ceramic glass cooktops.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the
ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop
surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After turning the surface elements
OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil
from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same
method for heavy or burned on soils.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abrasive plastic
type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive
plastic type no-scratch cleaning pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop for
any other purpose.
