How to maintain your induction cooktop without damaging it

Are you the proud new owner of an induction cooktop or stove? To get the best cooking results and to extend the lifespan of your appliance, be sure to properly maintain it and avoid damaging it. At Ateliers G. Paquette, experts in appliance repair, we’ve fixed more than one cooktop in our day and know just how fragile this appliance is. Here are some tips for safely and efficiently cleaning your induction cooktop, stove or hot plate.


Clean after every use

Make things easier on yourself by cleaning your cooktop with a moist cloth or sponge after use. You’ll want to clean any spills before they harden and become tough to remove. Just be sure that your appliance is no longer hot when you wipe it down. If you need to clean spills while cooking, carefully dab them with a thick, moist cloth.


Use the proper cleaning products

To avoid damaging your cooktop, use a gentle cleaning product, and don’t use any powders or other abrasive materials that could scratch the surface. To remove burnt-on or sticky spills, scrub them with a cream cleaner designed for cooktops or with dish soap and hot water. Are you dealing with an especially stubborn food stain? Arm yourself with a scraper designed for glass-ceramic and scratch it off.

Once you’ve gotten rid of all the food stains, wipe down the surface with warm water then dry it with a soft or microfibre cloth. That way you’ll make your cooktop shine and effectively prevent the formation of water spots.


Protect your cooktop

Certain cleaners are designed especially for cooktops, such as the Cook Top cream cleaner. Not only do such products allow you to quickly and safely clean your appliance, but they also protect its surface in a way that the average cleaner won’t. They reduce the risk of scratches, make stains less difficult to scrub away and eliminate streaks.
