Note: The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and type of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for best cooking results.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Pot holders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the element.
USE AND CARE OF GLASS SURFACE

NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green when the element will be turned off. This phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its original white color after it has completely cooled down. (White glass cooktops only).
APPROVED CLEANER FOR CERAMIC GLASS COOKTOP

DO NOT USE ON CERAMIC GLASS COOKTOP

SPECIAL CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR MINERAL DEPOSITS AND DISCOLORATIONS
Problem: A gray-brown stain that is not removed when using cleaner cream.
Cause: Condensation, when cooking, often collects and drips from cookware. The minerals found in water supply and foods may cause a gray or brown film to develop on cooktop. This film is so thin that it cannot be felt and appears to be under the cooktop.
To Prevent: Daily and proper use of cleaner cream.
- Wet the surface with water and sprinkle on cleaner cream.
- Scrub with a clean, damp paper towel until the stain disappears.
- Clean the remaining paste away with a damp paper towel.
- Apply a dab of cleaner cream and polish with a clean paper towel.
CLEANING MATERIALS FOR CERAMIC GLASS COOKTOP
Some cleaning materials may contain an ingredient that can damage the cooktop. Use recommended materials only (see below). Cleaner cream should be used regularly. First use recommended products listed below, then use cleaner cream. Use only recommended cleaning products and follow these basic cleaning suggestions.
- BEFORE THE COOKTOP IS USED. Thoroughly clean and saturate the cooktop with cleaner cream.
- a) Dampen clean paper towel and clean unit.
- b) Wipe off with another clean, damp paper towel; then wipe dry.
- For normal daily cleaning, apply a dab of cleaner cream in the center of each unit area to be cleaned. Start with approximately 1/8 teaspoon. (Apply more if needed). Then, proceed as stated above in (a and b).
- Make sure the bottom of the cookware and cooking areas are clean and dry.
- Select heat settings and cookware large enough for food and liquid. This stops boilovers and spattering.
- Wipe up food spills and spatters before they burn to the surface.
Regularly use cleaner cream. If you run out of cleaner cream, use one of the cleansers listed. Be sure to get a new supply of cleaner cream.
Never mix cleaning products! Mixtures may interact, with damaging or hazardous results.
Cleaning Various Parts of Your Cooktop
Before cleaning any part of the cooktop, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the cooktop is COOL. REMOVE SPILLOVERS AND HEAVY SOILING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. REGULAR CLEANING WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MAJOR CLEANING LATER.
|How to Clean
|Glass, Painted and Plastic Control Knobs, Body Parts, and Decorative Trim
|For general cleaning, use hot soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and built-up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch or dull the finish. Commercial glass cleaners recommended for glass cooktops may also be used.
|Wipe the control panel clean after each use. Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF and remove the control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Clean using hot, soapy water and a cloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
|Stainless Steel, Chrome
|Cover stubborn spots with an ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30-40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a cloth. Cleaners made especially for stainless steel, chrome, or copper are also recommended. Rinse all cleaners before operating the cooktop. Bluish stains may result due to heat combined with the cleaning material and they cannot be removed.

What is the distinction between a cooktop and a stovetop?
A cooktop is a flat, open surface used for searing and sautéing that does not have an oven beneath it but rather integrates into countertops. Some people use the term “cooktop” when referring to the top of a range rather than the standalone appliance, but that can be called a “stovetop” as well.
What is the most secure cooktop?
Induction cooktops safeguard you against painful cooking mishaps in two ways. Induction, for example, uses electromagnetic technology to directly heat the pan. Not the burner, not the stovetop, only the pan. That means you won’t burn your hand on the hot stovetop after you’ve finished cooking.
