Proper maintenance and care of an induction cooktop can help extend its lifespan and keep it looking new for longer. Here are some tips to follow:

  1. Clean up spills immediately: Food and liquid spills should be cleaned up immediately after they occur, as they can cause stains and damage to the cooktop surface if left unattended. Use a soft cloth or sponge and a mild cleaner recommended for induction cooktops to clean up spills.
  2. Use appropriate cookware: Only use cookware that is suitable for induction cooktops. Look for cookware labeled as "induction compatible" or with a symbol of an electromagnetic coil on the bottom. Do not use cookware made of aluminum, copper, glass, or ceramic on an induction cooktop, as they will not work.
  3. Use cookware with smooth bottoms: Rough or uneven-bottomed cookware can scratch the cooktop surface. Choose cookware with smooth and flat bottoms to avoid damaging the cooktop.
  4. Use appropriate cleaning products: Only use cleaning products that are recommended for use on induction cooktops. Avoid using harsh chemicals, bleach, or ammonia-based cleaners, which can damage the cooktop surface.
  5. Regular cleaning: Regularly clean the cooktop surface with a soft cloth or sponge and a mild cleaner recommended for induction cooktops. This will help prevent buildup of food and grime that can cause damage.
  6. Avoid sliding cookware: Do not slide heavy cookware or drag pots and pans across the cooktop surface, as this can cause scratches and damage.

By following these tips, you can help ensure your induction cooktop lasts for many years and continues to function properly.
