Care & Cleaning
Cooktop Maintenance
Consistent and proper cleaning iS essentlal to malntainlng
your ceramic glass caoktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the
recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to the ceramic
surface (on the web visit for replacement
cooktop cleaner, item number 40079}. Buff: with a non-
abrasive cloth or no-scratch cleaning pad. This will make
cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cook-
top cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass to
help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cool<-
top 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 marl< or scratch the cooktop surface.
Do not:
° Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on bottom; replace
with clean cookware before using.
Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.
Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the
Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.
° Drop heavy or hard objects on the glass cooktop, because
they may cause it to crack.
Cooktop Cleaning
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the con-
trois 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 CookTop® Cleaning Creme directly to
the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a non-abraslve plas-
tic type no-scratch cleaning pad to clean the entire cooktop
surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving
no residue.
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-abraslve
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.
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, then apply a few drops of
cleaning cream and buff: surface clean.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop
may occur if you use an abrasive type scratch pad. Only use
cleaning products that have been specifically designed for
ceramic glass cooktop.
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 oc-
cur 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 illus-
trated). Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same method
for heavy or burned on soils.
