  • For best results, use a scraper while the cooktop is still warm but not hot to the touch.  It is recommended to wear an oven mitt while scraping the warm cooktop. 
  • Hold the scraper at approximately a 45° angle against the glass surface, and it might be necessary to apply pressure in order to remove the residue.
  • Allow the cooktop to cool down before proceeding to Step 2. 

STEP 2: Apply a few dime-sized drops of affresh® cooktop cleaner / ceramic glass cooktop cleaner to the affected areas.
