Glass ceramic and induction hobs are becoming increasingly popular due to their modern design and efficiency operation. Compare to a classic hob, they don’t even require as much maintenance. However, inappropriate care can damage their surface. How should you care for your glass ceramic or induction hob to keep is looking new for as long as possible?
Everyday cleaning of the hub will spare you lots of time and nerves. During cooking, grease, food remains and dust settle on the hob. It is correctly recommended to clean the hob before and after cooking because dried stains are much more difficult to remove later. Every time you cook, the stains dry out more and more and create traces on the surface of the hob.
All you need for regular cleaning is a soft dish sponge, special glass ceramic clear or standard de-greasing dishwashing detergent. A microfiber rag is perfect for polishing. If the dub is clean but has a bit of dust on it, clean it with a regular dishcloth simply by quickly wiping over the surface.
Be careful when handling pots and other dishware. When sliding pots from one ring to another, you can scratch the surface of the hob. More impurities get stuck in the scratches and are much more difficult to remove.
What’s more, glass ceramic and induction hobs are fairly fragile. Never drop dishes onto the hob from above. When cooking, take care that the content of the pot doesn’t tip onto the ring. It is particularly difficult to remove sugar from the hob. It creates a caramel crust on the glass ceramic and induction surface, which is very difficult to remove.
Dried and resistant stains won’t come off with a normal sponge and dishwasher detergent. Never use a wire sponge or knife to remove seared splatters! You would scratch the surface and do more harm than good.
That’s it! The hob looks like new and the smells of last night’s dinner won’t be wafting in from the kitchen while cooking.
You should also wipe down gas hobs after cooking, using a cloth or sponge dipped in warm water. If soiling is heavier, lift up the metal pot holders and carefully wipe the crowns of the gas burners using a sponge with dish detergent or special cleaner – e.g. for stainless steel surfaces. You can soak the metal holders in hot water first if they are particularly dirty.
Does it sound complicated? It isn’t. Just get used to wiping the hob regularly before the dirt dries, and problem solved.
