How to Clean Ceramic Hobs

Updated February 21, 2017

Ceramic hobs are hobs without exposed and cumbersome burners. Instead, the hob is made of a ceramic material that is flat and simple to clean and maintain. Maintain the ceramic hob by cleaning it with non-abrasive scouring rags and sponges, cleaners and, in extreme cases, a single-edge scraper equipped with a razor blade. You can find hob cleaners, which are manufactured by companies such as Cerama Bryte, Easy-Do and Weiman at grocery and home improvement stores.

  1. Squeeze a dime- to quarter-size amount of hob cleaner near or at the centre of the soiled area.

  2. Spread the hob cleaner in circular or back-and-forth motions over the soiled area on the hob using a paper towel or a dry kitchen cloth. Repeat the process until the soiled area is clean.

  3. Wipe up the excess hob cleaner and debris with a clean paper towel or a dry kitchen cloth.

  4. Scrub the hob surface with a non-abrasive scouring pad and a dime- to quarter-size amount of hob cleaner when a regular cloth is not sufficient; companies manufacture scouring pads specifically designed for use with ceramic hob surfaces.

  5. Scrape stubborn or caked-on material, minerals or burnt food using a single-edge scraper equipped with a clean razor blade. Hold the scraper at a 45-degree angle when pushing it across the hob surface to avoid scraping or gouging the surface.

  6. Use a clean cloth to remove any leftover residue and cleaner from the hob surface.

  7. Warning

    Make sure the ceramic hob is cool to the touch before cleaning it.
