The burner grates, burner tops and trim rings can be
lifted off, making them easy to clean. Removing them
gives you access to the burner bodies and burner
bowls. (To avoid snagging cloth on spark igniters,
leave burner tops in place when cleaning burner
bowls.) There are two locating pins on the burner
grates that fit into an indentation at the bottom of the

and dry. Or you can use an abrasive cleaner for
stubborn stains. Although they’re durable, the grates

care you can give them. This is due to their continual
exposure to high temperatures. Do not operate a burner
for an extended period of time without cookware on
the grate. The finish on the grate may chip without
cookware to absorb the heat.
