How to clean your hob correctly
A sparkling shine for glass ceramic, Ceran®, and induction hobs
If you cook with electricity, you probably use a glass ceramic hob: either one that uses heat radiation (the hot plates gleam red when switched on) or an induction hob, where the heat is generated electromagnetically. In both cases, the surface is made of a glass ceramic material such as Ceran® and the method of cleaning is therefore the same.
Clean your hob in four steps
Be careful with sugar, rice starch, and plastic
Burnt sugar, rice starch, and plastics stick extremely well to the hob. Always remove these substances immediately—even if the hob is still hot. Take care not to burn yourself. Afterwards, wipe the hob again with a damp cloth and then dry it.
A bright future for your next cooking adventure
Incidentally, the hob should be cleaned every time it is used. This way, dirt and fat won’t get a chance to build up or burn onto the hotplates.
Corrosive cleaners and scouring agents can damage glass ceramic hobs and induction cooking tops. Use only materials that are intended for glass ceramic surfaces.
Rubbing the surface with a dry cloth after cleaning prevents limescale spots and creates a brilliant shine. Now everything is ready for you to start cooking again!
