CLEANING INDUCTION COOKTOP OR RANGE INSTRUCTIONS
After you are done cooking and loading up the dishwasher, likely the only thing standing between you and a pristine GASLAND kitchen is your ceramic glass stove top. Because GASLAND induction cooktops use electromagnetic energy to direct heat to compatible cookware, the cooktop surface itself cools off quickly and is easy to clean. In fact, if spillage occurs with your homemade Bolognese sauce, the GASLAND induction cooktop surface minimizes the chances of burnt-on or charred messes. However, hard water stains and white marks may still occur. No matter the mess, the step-by-step instructions below can help you get your induction cooktop clean.
For best results, is it recommended to always clean your GASLAND ceramic cooktop shortly after using it and after it has cooled down. This process takes roughly two to five minutes with a cleaning solution and a damp cloth. However, sometimes a deeper cleaning is necessary. With a cleaning kit, scraper and nonabrasive pad, your induction cooktop can be cleaned and ready for your next meal in under 30 minutes.
To avoid damage to your GASLAND cooktop, remember to refer to your owner’s manual and follow the directions on all cleaning products before using them.
STEP 1: SCRAPE THE COOKTOP SURFACE
For burnt-on grease or residue, wait for the cooktop to cool down so it is warm, but not hot to the touch. Then, hold the scraper as flat as possible to loosen any residue without scratching the glass. Repeat process as needed.
Note: Though induction cooktops do not radiate their own heat through the surface, hot cookware on top can still transfer heat. It’s still best to let it cool after you have removed the cookware and turned off the cooktop.
STEP 2: SPRAY THE COOKTOP SURFACE
Once your cooktop is completely cool to the touch, spray the surface with a cleaning solution or diluted vinegar mix. Let the solution rest for 10 to 15 minutes, and wipe the surface with a soft cloth or cleaning pad.
STEP 3: APPLY CERAMIC CLEANER
Apply a ceramic cooktop cleaner to any stubborn messes. Using a nonabrasive scrubbing pad, rub the affected areas until the residue is loosened. Let the cleaning solution settle to a hazy white film before moving to the next step.
STEP 4: POLISH THE SURFACE
Using a dry cloth, gently wipe and polish the cooktop surface. Continue rubbing until the white film disappears.
STEP 5: REPEAT THE CLEANING PROCESS
After scraping, cleaning and polishing, sometimes stubborn messes still remain. If this is the case, simply repeat steps one through four until your cooktop surface is clean.
Step 1: Scrape the cooktop surface.
Step 2: Spray the cooktop surface with a diluted vinegar solution or cleaner, then wipe away.
Step 3: Treat the surface with ceramic cooktop cleaner.
Step 4: Polish the cooktop.

The best way to clean your induction hob is shortly after you are done using it. This daily maintenance helps to ensure that your ceramic glass stovetop stays shiny and smooth.
