Here are some tips to help you use and care for your new induction cooktop:

Professional maintenance

  • If the ceramic-glass cooktop breaks, it will need to be replaced by a professional. Contact the manufacturer to see if they have local preferred vendors who can replace the glass top.

Homeowner maintenance

  • Induction cooktops are easy to clean because of the smooth, flat surface. Follow the manufacturer’s guidance and use a damp cloth and mild soap to clean the surface.
  • Avoid abrasive cleaners or any materials that will scratch the surface of the cooktop.


  • Ceramic-glass cooktops are beautiful and long lasting. Consult your manufacturer’s recommendations about cleaning and maintenance.
  • Like any electric appliance, the induction cooktop or range must be plugged in and your home must be receiving electricity for the cooktop to work.
  • Under normal operation, induction cooking can emit a slight hum or buzz from the magnetic field. Operating at a lower power or using heavier, higher end cookware can help decrease the noise.
  • Like smartphones, induction cooktops give off electromagnetic signals; if you have a pacemaker, consult a physician about your options for using an induction cooker.
