Operating the Cooktop
Firstly, you have to make sure that the cooktop is resting on a flat, solid surface for firm control. Before using the cooktop for the first time, it is important to heat up the device at the maximum temperature for approximately 4 minutes without cooking anything. This will clean the cast-iron plate and make it ready for use. It may smoke a little while using it for the first time, but that is quite natural, the smoke will die within a few minutes of use.
Little Care and Maintenance Tip
A little extra care is necessary for making your cooktop last. The device is built with a firm, polished stainless steel. But do not use any rough scrub-materials like steel wool pads on any part of the surface for cleaning as it may leave scratches on the body. You can easily clean it with a soft piece of cloth or sponge and this will take you a long way if you stick to being gentle to your appliance. Besides the burner is fixed and not removable for cleaning, use a piece of cloth for cleaning it.
