Cleaning and care

Under no circumstances use a steam cleaner to clean this appliance. Pressurized steam could cause permanent damage to the surface and to components for which the manufacturer cannot accept responsibility.

Never use strong cleaners e.g. oven sprays, stain or rust removers.

Scouring pads and abrasive cleaning agents should only be used on the heating element.

Do not use any sharp pointed objects which could damage the seal between the ceramic surface and the surrounding frame and between the frame and the countertop.

When using cleaning agents for stainless steel you must follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the packaging.

After cleaning use a soft, dry cloth to remove any moisture. This way you will prevent the build up of limescale deposits.

Control panel

Ceramic surfaces can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Wipe dry using a soft cloth.


Do not use too much water when cleaning the controls. Water could penetrate into the electronics and cause damage.

Stainless steel

Clean stainless steel surfaces with warm water and liquid dish soap applied with a non-abrasive sponge and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Soak baked or hardened spills first to loosen them.

Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned using a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner.

To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner for stainless steel can also be used.

Apply sparingly with even pressure.

Do not use stainless steel conditioner on the lava rock container.

Grate, Lava rock container, heating element
