To clean stainless surfaces on the cooktop:
- Wash the surfaces with warm, soapy water using liquid detergent and a nonabrasive sponge.
- Always rub evenly in the direction of the grain.
- Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
If necessary apply some stainless steel polish. Use a clean, dry towel to polish the surface in the direction of the grain until it shines.
Do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive or harsh cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths or certain paper towels. The products can permanently scratch or stain the steel finish.
