The grease and grime from cooking is every homemaker’s nightmare. Now that you’ve got the chic ceramic cook top, here’s how to make sure it always looks its best.

One general principle that every commercial kitchen abides by is the “clean as you go” philosophy to stay spick and span at all times. This means, at the very minimum, wiping up stains and picking up bits of food as soon as the cooking is done.  But is it really as simple as it sounds and does it work across all cook tops?

For induction cook tops like the Electrolux’s sleek range of black ceramic induction hobs (EHED63CS, EHEC65BS), the lack of nooks and crannies makes it far easier to clean as compared to conventional ceramic and glass cook tops.

To clean these types of cook tops, be mindful not to discolour or scratch the smooth, glossy surface with abrasive cleaners and scrubs.  To clean up food spills that occur while cooking, use a soft absorbent synthetic pad or sponge to soak up spills immediately. As soon as cooking is complete, sprinkle the cook top with non abrasive cleaner over the surface and wipe clean. Remember to rinse clean with water a couple of times to ensure no cleaning agent is left on the surface before buffing or polishing with a soft lint-free cloth for that clean, smooth, glossy finish.

If you notice a food spill that has already become a crusty soil on your ceramic cook top, fret not. There are still a couple of options. The easiest is to get hold of cleaning products specifically for stubborn stains like burnt sugar. You could also get hold of a razor blade, tilt it at a 30 degree angle and gently scrape off the burnt, crusty food spill that’s started to set on your cook top. But be careful not to scratch the surface.

Besides waiting for the inevitable to happen, do check out special “conditioners” for ceramic and glass cook tops to protect it against permanent staining from food spills. But these treatments need to be applied on and polished before you cook. Always  check with the manufacturer on the best way to protect, clean and keep your cook top in top form.

If you’re looking for a more DIY remedy, add distilled vinegar and baking soda to the stain. Let it sit for a while and rub off with a non abrasive sponge.  You may need to repeat this a few times to completely remove the food stain. Rinse off with clean water and don’t forget the finishing touch – polish and shine with a lint free cloth.

Simple steps taken regularly will keep that glossy, chic cook top at the centre of attention in your kitchen for a long time to come.
