First remove any burnt-on deposits or spilled food from your glass-ceramic cooking surface with a suitable metal razor scraper (similar to scraping paint off of your windowpanes in your home - it will not damage the decorated cooking surface). Hold the scraper at approximately a 30° angle to the cooktop. Do not use a dull or nicked blade. For your safety, please wear an oven mitt potholder while using the metal scraper. When the cooking surface has cooled down apply a few dabs ( about the size of a dime ) of an approved cleaner in each burner area and work the cleaning cream over the cooktop surface with a damp paper towel as if you were cleaning a window. Approved cleaners include Weiman CookTop Cleaning Cream (www.weiman.com
), Cerama Bryte (www.ceramabryte.com
), Hope’s Cooktop Cleaning Cream (www.camden-industrial.com
), and Easy-Off 3 in 1 Glass Top Cleaner Spray (www.easyoff.us
). As a final step, clean with clear water and wipe the cooktop surface with a clean, dry paper towel. If any sugar or food containing sugar (preserves, ketchup, tomato sauce, jellies, fudge, candy, syrups, chocolate, etc.), a plastic item or kitchen foil accidentally melts on the hot surface of your cooktop, remove the molten material IMMEDIATELY with a metal razor scraper (it will not damage the decorated cooking surface) while the cooking surface is still hot to avoid the risk of damage to the glass-ceramic surface. For your safety please wear an oven mitt potholder while cleaning the hot cooking surface. For additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
