are clean before cooking. Certain
items, particularly sugar grains or
crystallized liquids such as molasses or
syrups are actually harder than ceramic
and can scratch the surface if they are
not cleaned off immediately. Small or

or performance of the cooktop however.
The burner rings and touch controls are
fused into the ceramic glass and are
resistant to wear if properly maintained.
