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