Cleaning the Hob

Cleaning agents must not come into contact with a heated ceramic glass surface:

  • All cleaning agents must be removed with adequate amounts of clean water after cleaning because they can have a caustic effect when the surface becomes hot. 
  • Do not use any aggressive cleaners such as grill or oven sprays, scouring pads or abrasive pan cleaners.

Clean the ceramic glass surface after each use when it is still warm to the touch. This will prevent spillage from becoming burnt onto the surface. Remove scales, watermarks, fat drippings and metallic discolouration with the use of a commercially available ceramic glass or stainless steel cleaner.

1 Wipe the ceramic glass surface with a damp cloth.
2 Rub dry with a clean cloth. Remnants of cleaning agent must not be left on the surface.
3 Thoroughly clean the entire ceramic glass cooking surface once a week with a commercially available ceramic glass or stainless steel cleaner.
4 Wipe the ceramic glass surface using adequate amounts of clean water and rub dry with a clean lint-free cloth.
1 Use a glass scraper to remove food that has boiled over and stubborn splashes.
2 Place the glass scraper at an angle to the ceramic glass surface.
3 Remove soiling by scraping with the blade.


  • Glass scrapers and ceramic glass cleaners are available from specialty retailers.
1 Remove burnt-on sugar, melted plastic, aluminium foil or other materials with a glass scraper immediately and while still hot.


  • There is a risk of burning yourself when the glass scraper is used on a hot cooking zone.
2 Clean the hob as normal when it has cooled down. If the cooking zone on which something has melted has been allowed to cool, warm it up again for cleaning.


  • Scratches or dark blemishes on the ceramic glass surface, caused, for example, by a pan with sharp edges, cannot be removed. However, they do not impair the function of the hob.


  • Do not use vinegar, lemon juice or scale remover on the hob frame; otherwise dull blemishes will appear.
1 Wipe the frame with a damp cloth.
2 Moisten dried debris with a wet cloth. Wipe and rub dry.

Avoiding Damaging your Electric Cooktop

  • Do not use the hob as a work surface or for storage. 
  • Do not operate a cooking zone if there is no pan on the hob or if the pan is empty. 
  • Ceramic glass is very tough and resistant to temperature shock, but it is not unbreakable. It can be damaged by a particularly sharp or hard object dropping onto the hob. 
  • Do not place pans on the hob frame. Scratching and damage to the finish may occur. 
  • Avoid spilling acidic liquids, for example, vinegar, lemon juice and descaling agents, onto the hob frame, since such liquids can cause dull spots. 
  • If sugar or a preparation containing sugar comes into contact with a hot cooking zone and melts, it should be cleaned off immediately with a kitchen scraper while it is still hot. If allowed to cool, it may damage the surface when removed. 
  • Keep all items and materials that could melt, for example, plastics, aluminium foil and oven foils, away from the ceramic glass surface. If something of this nature melts onto the hob, it must be removed immediately with a scraper.
