NE58K9560: Protecting the cooktop surface


  1. Clean the cooktop before using it for the first time.                      

  2. Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep your cooktop looking good and can prevent damage.                  

  3. If a spillover occurs while you are cooking, immediately clean the spill while it is hot to prevent a tough cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe the spill with a clean, dry towel.                  

  4. Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the cooktop trim for a long period of time.                      

  5. Do not use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads, which will scratch the cooktop.                   

  6. Do not use chlorine bleach, ammonia, or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use on a glass-ceramic surface.

Preventing Marks and Scratches

  1. Do not use glass cookware. It may scratch the cooktop.                              

  2. Do not place a trivet or wok ring between the cooktop and a pan or wok. These items can mark or scratch the cooktop.                  

  3. Make sure the cooktop and the pan bottom are clean.                       

  4. Do not  slide metal pans across the cooktop.

Preventing Stains

  1. Do not use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the cooktop surface. A film will remain, which may cause stains on the cooking surface after the area is heated.                    

  2. Continuously cooking on a soiled surface can result in a permanent stain. 

Preventing Other Damage

  1. Do not allow plastic, sugar, or foods with high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop. Should this happen, clean immediately.                    

  2. Do not let a pan boil dry as this will damage the cooktop and the pan.                          

  3. Do not use the cooktop as a work surface or cutting board.                          

  4. Do not cook food directly on the cooktop. Always use the proper cookware.
