For stubborn soils, use a plastic scouring pad and a nonabrasive cleaner. If soil is not removed, reapply Cooktop Cleaning Creme. Cover with damp paper towels and let stand 30 minutes. Scrub again. Rinse and dry.
It is suggested that it be cleaned after each use. Clean with soap and water, mild liquid sprays or mild abrasive cleaners or baking soda. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents such as steel wool pads or powdered cleaning agents. These products will scratch cooktop surfaces.
Grates need to be cleaned frequently with hot soapy water. Grease and food spatters will be difficult to remove if the grate is not cleaned prior to heating.
To clean the gas ports, use a straight pin rather than a toothpick. A toothpick may break off and clog the ports. Do not enlarge or distort the ports. Be especially aware of the gas port beneath the ignitor. If this port is blocked, the burner may not light.
If this happens, the gas ports may become blocked and it may affect the flame.
This will prevent water from entering the gas tube opening. When cleaning the surface burner, use care around the ignitor. If a cleaning cloth should catch the ignitor, it could damage it. The burner may not light if the ignitor is damaged, soiled or wet.
