Care and cleaning

 

What?

How? Important!

Everyday soiling on glass (fingerprints, marks, stains left by food or non-sugary spillovers on the glass)

  1. Switch the power to the cooktop off at the wall.
  2. Apply cooktop cleaner while the glass is still warm (but not hot!)
  3. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  4. Switch the power to the cooktop back on at the wall.
  • When the power to the cooktop is switched off, there will be no ‘hot surface’ indication but the cooking zone may still be hot! Take extreme care.
  • Heavy-duty scourers, some nylon scourers and harsh/ abrasive cleaning agents may scratch the glass.
    Always read the label to check if your cleaner or scourer is suitable.
  • Never leave cleaning residue on the cooktop: the glass may become stained.

Boilovers, melts, and hot sugary spills on the glass

Remove these immediately with a fish slice, palette knife or razor blade scraper suitable for ceramic glass cooktops, but beware of hot cooking zone surfaces:

  1. Switch the power to the cooktop off at the wall.
  2. Hold the blade or utensil at a 30° angle and scrape the soiling or spill to a cool area of the cooktop.
  3. Clean the soiling or spill up with a dish cloth or paper towel.
  4. Follow steps 2 to 4 for ‘Everyday soiling on glass’ above.
  • Remove stains left by melts and sugary food or spillovers as soon as possible. If left to cool on the glass, they may be difficult to remove or even permanently damage the glass surface.
  • Cut hazard: when the safety cover is retracted, the blade in a scraper is razor-sharp. Use with extreme care and always store safely and out of reach of children.

Spillover on the touch controls and stainless steel strip

  1. Switch the power to the cooktop off at the wall.
  2. Soak up the spill.
  3. Wipe the touch control area with a clean damp sponge or cloth.
  4. Wipe the area completely dry with a paper towel.
  5. Switch the power to the cooktop back on at the wall.
  • The cooktop may beep and turn itself off, and the touch controls may not function while there is liquid on them. Make sure you wipe the touch control area dry before turning the cooktop back on.
