Full Answer

Clean the black ceramic cooktop surface after each time you use it by applying nonabrasive ceramic cooktop cleaner, rubbing it thoroughly, and wiping it dry with a cloth or paper towel. Wait until the cooktop has cooled before cleaning it. Do not use general purpose cleaners, abrasive sponges or scouring pads. For burned-on residue or persistent stains, sprinkle some cooktop cleaner on the stain, and carefully scrape it with a razor scraper held at a 45-degree angle. When the stain is gone, wash the surface with cooktop cleaner and a cloth or paper towel.

If plastic, sugar, tomato sauce or milk is spilled on the cooktop, turn off the stove, put on an oven mitt and use a cloth or razor scraper to remove as much of the spill as possible. Once the stove has cooled, clean the cooktop surface with cooktop cleaner, a razor scraper and a soft cloth. Avoid using the stained area until it is completely clean, or the cooktop surface may become permanently damaged.
