Induction cookers are becoming increasingly popular due to their efficiency and ease of use. They're also safer than conventional stoves and easier to clean.

However, you need to wash an induction cooker carefully and with special tools to avoid scratching it. Better Homes & Gardens has told you how to do this.

How to clean an induction cooktop

When cleaning an induction cooktop, avoid abrasive products as they can scratch the surface. You can use microfiber cloths, a glass scraper, and soft sponges.

When it comes to cleaning agents, avoid all-purpose glass sprays, as they contain ammonia and can leave streaks and dull spots on the stove top. Instead, use a dishwashing detergent, a special induction cooktop detergent, or distilled white vinegar.

How often to clean the induction hob

To keep your induction hob in good condition, you need to take care of it regularly. You should wipe it with a damp, soft cloth after each use to prevent food residue from building up on the surface.

It should be thoroughly cleaned every week. To do this, use dishwashing detergent or a special cooktop cleaner. If you need a deeper cleaning, spray the glass surface with distilled white vinegar before wiping.

Step-by-step instructions
