Caring for your electric or induction cooktop, though different from traditional gas cooktops, need not be complicated. This guide outlines essential practices to keep your glass cooktop in pristine condition, ensuring it endures for years to come.

Note: Always clean the cooktop before its first use.

Dry cookware: Ensure the bottoms of your pots and pans are thoroughly dry before using them on the cooktop to prevent debris buildup. Use the correct type of cookware suitable for your specific cooktop.

Food debris: Some food residues on the glass surface may resemble bubbles; these do not harm the cooktop and can be easily removed using a glass cleaner and a clean, soft cloth.

Spill management: While cooking, be cautious not to spill food on the surface. If cookware overflows, promptly remove it, turn off the cooktop, and wait for it to cool down. Wipe up spills with a damp towel before resuming cooking to prevent future spills.

Sugar or chocolate spills: Spills involving melted sugar or chocolate require immediate attention, even when the cooktop is still hot. Sugary spills can adhere rapidly and cause permanent damage if left unattended. Exercise caution when cleaning such messes, considering the cooktop's residual heat.

While preventive measures are crucial, cleaning your cooktop after each use or immediately following a spill is equally vital. Immediate cleaning makes it easier to remove spilled food and prevents stubborn stains.

Warning: Before cleaning, ensure the cooktop is turned off and completely cooled.

Choose a cleaning method

Glass cleaner

For most stains, use specialized cleaning products designed for glass cooktops.

Baking soda and vinegar

Certain stains, such as mineral deposits, respond well to a baking soda and vinegar solution. Use a spray bottle for even application.

Cleaning steps

  1. Spread the chosen cleaner (glass cleaner or baking soda and vinegar solution) over the affected area.

  2. For the baking soda and vinegar method, soak a towel in soapy water, wring it out, and place it over the cooktop. Skip this step if using a glass cleaner or soak the towel in the glass cleaner.

  3. Wait for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove the soaking towel (if used) and wipe the surface with a clean, dry towel or cloth. Stubborn stains may require vigorous rubbing to separate them from the cooktop.

  5. For heavily soiled surfaces, consider using a glass-cleaning blade scraper, often included in glass cleaner kits. Always use a fresh blade to prevent glass scratches. If the stain persists, opt for the baking soda and vinegar method.

By following these guidelines, you'll ensure the longevity and pristine appearance of your Samsung electric cooktop.
