Step 1: Allow to cool and scrape
While the cooktop is still warm, use a cooktop scraper at a 45 degree angle to remove any food residue. It is recommended to wear an oven mitt while scraping the cooktop.
Step 2: Clean glass surface with cooktop cleaner
Shake the non-abrasive cooktop cleaner and apply in dime-sized amounts directly to the cooktop. Avoiding any stainless steel, rub with a non-abrasive cleaning pad and let the cleaner dry to a white haze. Next, buff with a soft, dry cloth until the white film is no longer visible.
Step 3: Clean stainless steel surfaces
We recommend affresh® Stainless Steel Brightener, rubbed in the direction of the grain to avoid damage. If you don’t have any on hand, you can dip a non-abrasive sponge into liquid dish soap diluted in water and scrub the stainless. If you use this method, rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, clean cloth. Do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, cooktop cleaner, steel wool pads, gritty washcloths or abrasive paper towels.
Step 4: Wash knobs
Pull each cooktop knob directly away from the control panel to remove, then wash them in your sink with water and dish soap. To avoid damage, do not soak the knobs or remove the seals underneath. Dry and replace.
Cleaning tip: If you don’t have a special cooktop cleaning kit on hand, you can try scraping with a plastic scraper, spraying your cooktop with white vinegar and scrubbing with a non-abrasive cleaning pad.
