Stains on the induction hob

Stains on the induction hob: how do I remove them?

One of the benefits of having an induction hob in your kitchen is that it is easy to clean. However, how do you remove stains and scratches in just a few simple moves?

Oil, sauce, food residues... after you cooked, the hob often looks like a battlefield.

Induction hobs are made of ceramic-glass and, instead of flames, have a smooth and even surface, without buttons or cracks. For dusting off the hob, just run a wet microfibre cloth over it and then dry it with a piece of towel paper.

Even removing stains from an induction hob is a piece of cake with the right products. There is no stubborn dirt that holds!

How do I remove a stain from my induction hob?

To remove grease and oil stains, use Care+Protect cooking degreaser for induction and vitroceramic hobs. Spray it on a wet cloth and run it on the surface you want to treat until all stains are removed, then rinse with a wet cloth and dry it.

Against stubborn dirt, spray the degreaser directly on dirt deposits, let it work for a couple of minutes, then rinse it out with a wet cloth.

It’s a good idea to remove the stains right away, when they are still fresh, without waiting for them to dry (especially in the case of melted plastic, sugar or sugary ingredients).

How do I remove scratches from my induction hob?

Despite being a very sturdy material, vitroceramic is also sensitive to scratches. For instance, when you move a pot on the plates, you may drag it instead of lifting it; over time, this repeated gesture will cause many scratches on the surface. As well as using metal sponges, as mentioned earlier.

To remove scratches from an induction hob, use a scratch removing paste and a faux chamois leather cloth. You can easily find them both at your local hardware store. Apply a small quantity of paste, spread it with the soft cloth and continue with increasing pressure. Continue until the scratches are completely gone.

How to protect an induction hob

A correct maintenance is as important as keeping the hob clean. How can I protect my induction hob? Here are 4 tips:

  1. Start cleaning the induction hob only once the residual heat signal has disappeared.
  2. Clean the surface every time you cook, to prevent deposits and burned food residues.
  3. After cleaning, always remember to dry it completely to prevent stains.
  4. Do not use abrasive or corrosive products. Avoid also steamers.
