Clean and care for your Samsung electric cooktop

Although they are different from traditional gas cooktops, taking care of your electric or induction cooktop doesn't have to be too hard. This guide will explain everything you need to do (or avoid doing) to keep the cooktop looking pristine, so it will last for years to come.

Note: Clean the cooktop before using it for the first time.

Clean and care for the glass cooktop

While preventive measures are super important, cleaning your cooktop after each use or immediately after a spill is just as critical. For the best results, clean any messes right away. This will make it easier to remove spilled food and prevent tougher stains from forming later.

  • Clean the cooktop’s glass after each use. Make sure to turn off the cooktop and wait until it has cooled down before cleaning.


  • Make sure the bottom of the cookware is dry before using it on the cooktop. This will prevent debris from forming on the cooktop.


  • Certain food debris left on the glass surface may look like bubbles. This will not damage the glass cooktop, and can be easily removed with a glass cleaner and clean, soft cloth. 


  • When using the cooktop, be careful not to spill food on the surface. Cookware that overflows should be removed, and you should stop cooking immediately. Turn off the cooktop and wipe up the spills with a wet towel once the cooktop has cooled down. Then, you can resume cooking.


  • If you ignore a spill while cooking, it may become more difficult to clean later on, as the spilled food will harden.


  • Cerama Bryte and Weiman products are recommended for cleaning your glass cooktop. Cerama Bryte cleaner can be purchased from retail stores. 


  • The glass cleaner should be spread evenly on the affected area. Wait for 15 minutes, and then rub away the debris. Then, wipe the glass with a clean, dry towel or cloth.


  • If the cooktop’s surface is heavily soiled, it may be difficult to remove the debris with a glass cleaner. You can use a glass-cleaning blade scraper instead. Make sure you always use a fresh blade to prevent scratching the glass, and check that the blade is sharp with even edges.


  • Melted sugar or chocolate that spills on the cooktop should be removed immediately. Sugary spills can adhere to the glass surface very quickly, and can cause permanent damage to the cooktop if they are not cleaned right away. Always use caution when cleaning sugary messes because the cooktop will still be hot.


  • You may accidentally scratch the surface of the cooktop if you use the incorrect type of cookware, so make sure you are using the correct type. See our guide for more information.
