Cleaning a Porcelain Cooktop

Cleaning a Maytag Porcelain Cooktop

Cleaning Method:

IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off, and the cooktop is cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products. Also, review the Use & Care Guide for your model.

Food spills containing acids, such as vinegar and tomato, should be cleaned as soon as the entire appliance is cool. These spills may affect the finish. To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use steel wool, abrasive powder cleansers, chlorine bleach, rust remover, or ammonia.

Follow these steps for best results:

IMPORTANT:  To avoid damage to porcelain surfaces, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, steelwool pads, gritty washcloths, or abrasive paper towels.

Preferred Method:  Soap, water, and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested first unless otherwise noted.

Other Methods:  Glass cleaner, mild liquid detergent, all-purpose cleaner, or nonabrasive scrubbing pad. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
