Care and Cleaning
Igniters Griddle Accessory
It is important to keep igniter port openings on
burners clear and free of obstructions to avoid ignition
failure and possible gas buildup. If the port openings
are blocked, use a twist tie to remove food particles.
The igniter cap and stem can be cleaned with warm
soapy water and a plastic scrubber. The wire electrode
inside the cap can be cleaned with a small brush.
Rinse and dry.
DO NOT immerse a hot griddle in cold water.
Once the griddle has cooled, wash with soap or
detergent in hot water in the sink. Be sure to remove
all food residue before cooking on the griddle again.
Remove stubborn spots with a plastic scouring pad. For
best results, use only those cleaning products which
are recommended for use when cleaning non-stick
surfaces. Do not use steel wool or coarse scouring pads.
DO NOT wash in a dishwasher.
Porcelain Burner Basin
This area is located under the grill and surface burners and should be
cleaned after each use of the grill.
To remove light soil, clean with soapy water or with a cleaner such as 409.
For easier cleanup, soak paper towels in a household cleanser, lay in the
burner basin and soak for at least a half-hour or longer.
To remove moderate soil, scrub with Comet, Bon Ami, a soft scrub
cleanser or plastic scrubber.
To remove stubborn soil, spray with an oven cleaner. Let soak overnight.
Wipe clean. Rinse and dry.
Surface Burners
You should clean the surface burners routinely,
especially after bad spillovers, which could clog
these holes. Wipe off surface burners. If heavy
spillover occurs, remove the surface burners from
the cooktop. Burners lift out for cleaning.
To remove burned-on food, soak the surface burner
in a solution of mild liquid detergent and hot water.
Soak the surface burner for 20 to 30 minutes. For
more stubborn stains, use a cleanser like Soft Scrub
brand or Bon Ami
brand. Rinse well to remove any
traces of the cleanser that might clog the surface
burner openings. Do not use steel wool because it
will clog the surface burner openings and scratch the
surface burners. If the holes become clogged, clean
them with a sewing needle or twist tie.
Before putting the surface burner back, shake out
excess water and then dry it thoroughly. Then place it
back in the cooktop, making sure it is properly seated
and level.
Check the flame pattern of each burner; if the flames
are “jumpy” (not steady), clean the holes again with
a sewing needle or twist tie.
