I am getting new appliances today (yeah!). I decided to make the jump to stainless from black. Can anyone please offer the best way to clean it?

Also, here is a picture of my cooktop. How should I clean it? I've always used Windex on my other one but it wasn't completely smooth.

I want to make sure I don't use anything that will hurt it.

Consult the manufacturer. BTW, what brand is the cooktop? Is it part of a stove or separate and on an island?

The Manual that comes with it would be the best advice. If you know the model you can look it up on line if you want to read it before it gets delivered.

Good luck with yours. I can't seem to keep mine clean enough to satisfy me.

Thanks. Will do.

Froo Froo - It's a GE Profile 30" cooktop. I have a separate wall oven.

The man that delivered all my stainless steel appliances said to use a small amount of baby oil on a white cloth and clean in the direction of the grain. For me, it worked like a dream. Be sure to wipe off any residual.

I think you consult to different cleaning shops available about to clean your appliance, form there you will get the best ideas of cleaning.

There is special cleaner for smooth top ranges....Any hardware store sells it and even your appliance store should have it.
