Samsung Electric Cooktop - Clean and care for your appliance

Taking care of your electric or induction cooktop doesn't have to be too hard. This guide will explain everything you need to do to keep the cooktop looking clean and pristine to make it last for years to come.

The provided information refers to cooktops sold in Canada. Do not place any aluminum foil or aluminum pan on the cooktop. This will lead to permanent damage to the unit and cause issues with the unit.

Protect the cooktop surface
Protect the cooktop surface
  • Clean the cooktop before using it for the first time.
  • Clean the cooktop daily or after each use.
  • If a spill occurs while you are cooking, clean it immediately while it is still hot to prevent having to clean a tough mess later. Using extreme care, wipe the spill with a clean, dry towel.
  • Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or cooktop trim for a long period of time.
  • Do not use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads. They will scratch the cooktop.
  • Do not use chlorine bleach, ammonia, or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use on a glass-ceramic surface.
Prevent marks and scratches
Prevent marks and scratches
  • Do not use glass cookware. It may scratch the cooktop.
  • Do not place a trivet or wok ring between the cooktop and a pan or wok. These items can mark or scratch the cooktop.
  • Do not slide metal pans across the cooktop.
  • Make sure the cooktop and bottom of pans are clean.
Prevent stains
  • Do not use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the cooktop. The remaining film may cause stains on the cooktop surface after it is heated.
  • Cooking on a soiled surface continuously can cause permanent stains.
Prevent other damage
  • Do not allow plastic, sugar, or other foods with high sugar content to melt onto the cooktop. If this happens, clean it immediately.
  • Do not let a pan boil dry. This will cause damage to the cooktop and the pan.
  • Do not use the cooktop surface as a cutting board.
  • Do not cook food directly on the cooktop. Always use the appropriate cookware.
Clean the glass cooktop
Clean the glass cooktop

Only use a ceramic cooktop cleaner like Cerama Bryte. Shake the cleaning cream well. Then, apply a few drops of cleaner directly on the cooktop. To clean the cooktop surface, use a paper towel or a cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops. To remove the cleaning residue, use a dry cloth or paper towel.

Remove burned-on residue

Wait for the cooktop to cool. Spread a few drops of the ceramic cooktop cleaner on the burned residue. Using a cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops, rub the residue. Apply pressure if needed. If any residue remains, repeat the above steps until the cooktop is clean. After the cooktop is clean, you can polish the entire surface of the cooktop with the ceramic cooktop cleaner for additional protection.

Remove heavy burned-on residue

Wait for the cooktop to cool. Place a single edged razor blade scraper at around a 45-degree angle against the glass surface. Then, scrape the soil. You will need to apply some pressure to remove the residue. After scraping with the razor, apply a few drops of the ceramic cooktop cleaner on the burned residue. To remove the remaining residue, use a cleaning pad. After the cooktop is clean, you can polish the entire surface of the cooktop with the ceramic cooktop cleaner for additional protection.

Remove metal marks and scratches
  • Take care not to slide pots and pans across the cooktop. This will leave marks on the cooktop surface. To remove these marks, apply ceramic cooktop cleaner with a cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops.
  • If pots with a thin layer of aluminum or copper are allowed to boil dry, the layer may leave cause a black discolouration on your cooktop. The discolouration should be removed immediately or the discolouration may become permanent.
Clean the cooktop seal
