How to clean your ceramic glass cooktop
If you’re seeking a simple cleaning method to keep your cooktop looking shiny and new, here’s a step-by-step guide for how to clean a glass cooktop. The following tips are the absolute best way to clean a glass-ceramic cooktop. If you follow all of the steps,you’ll be more than pleased with the results.
Step 1: This is the most important step of the cleaning process, but it’s one most don’t know about. Use a metal scraper (you can find them at your local hardware store near the paint section) to clean off buildup. Hold the scraper at a 45-degree angle, making sure the blade stays flush with the surface, and scrape off any water or baked-on food. This is a surefire way to take off both baked-on food as well as water and mineral stains. Make sure to scrape off sticky items like sugar or jam instantly before the cooktop cools, but use a pot holder to grip the scraper so you don’t burn your hand.
Step 2: Once the cooktop cools, add a few drops of a SCHOTT-approved cooktop cleaner, such as Cerama Bryte, Carbona, or Affresh Cooktop Cleaner, and rub with a paper towel or soft rag. These cleaners are cream based and mildly abrasive, making them strong enough to cut through tough stains without leaving surface scratches. They can also clean off the iridescent stains left behind from ammonia cleaners. You don’t need to use a lot of cleaner. Too much product won’t hurt the stovetop, but it will take longer to fully remove.
Step 3: After rubbing down the surface with a certified cooktop cleaner, wet a soft cloth with water and wipe down the stove. Finally, dry the surface with a clean rag or paper towel.
According to this step,you can maintain your ceramic glass cooktop looking shiny and new.
