Care and cleaning

Includes general advice and tips on how to clean every part of your cooktop.

General advice

  • Before you begin cleaning, you must ensure that the cooktop is switched off.
  • Allow the cooktop to cool down before cleaning.
  • Avoid leaving acidic substances (lemon juice, vinegar etc.) on the surfaces.

Enamelled parts

  • Wash all of the enamelled parts only with a sponge or soft cloth, and soapy water or non- abrasive cleaners.
  • Dry with a soft cloth.
  • If acidic substances such as lemon juice, tomato sauce, vinegar etc. are left in contact with the enamel for a long time they will damage the surface.

Stainless steel

  • Stainless steel parts should be rinsed with water and dried with a soft and clean cloth.
  • For burnt-on or difficult spills, use specific stainless steel non-abrasive products available commercially or a little hot vinegar.

Control knobs

  • The control knobs may be removed for cleaning.
  • CE302 models only: when you remove the control knobs for cleaning, take care not to damage the seal.

Electric hotplates

  • Electric hotplates are made of cast iron and though durable, will rust if moisture is left on them regularly.
  • Do not place wet lids from other pans onto an unused hotplate.
  • Always clean when the hotplate is tepid.
  • Use a soft cloth, dampened, or a specific commercial cleaner. To finish off, use a soft cloth with a little oil.
  • Do not use water, to avoid the formation of rust.

Do not use steam cleaners because the moisture could get inside the appliance and make it dangerous.
