How to properly clean a drip bowl

Cleaning and care guide for drip bowls:

Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the cooktop is cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products.

Food spills containing acids, such as vinegar and tomato, should be cleaned as soon as the entire appliance is cool, these spills may affect the finish.

NOTE:  Coil elements are self-cleaning; do not immerse them in water.

To remove coil elements:

1. Push in the edge of coil element toward the receptacle, and then lift it enough to clear the burner bowl.
