Cooking on a ceramic or an induction hob is always a pleasure, however, cleaning them isn’t always easy! Although during cooking, you get a very precise temperature, for cleaning, you have a fragile surface that is prone to streaking. Here are our best tips to shine up your cooktop without running the risk of damaging it.
1) Cleaning clay

Soak a soft sponge in cleaning clay and scrub your ceramic or induction hob. Rinse it with plain water and wipe the surface with a soft damp cloth.
2) Black soap
Arm yourself with a damp sponge and apply a pea sized amount of liquid black soap. Scrub gently, rinse and wipe.
3) Whiting chalk (AKA blanc de Meudon)

If your hob is very dirty, whiting chalk is the solution. Mix a teaspoon of water and 2 teaspoons of whiting chalk. Apply the product to the hob with a soft sponge, and rinse well. This concoction will deeply de-grease the surface and bring back its shine.
4) Bicarbonate of soda
Put two glasses of bicarbonate of soda and one glass of water into a bowl, and mix it. Apply the paste to the hob with the help of a sponge. Leave it to sit for twenty minutes. Next wipe it with a wet sponge to remove the bicarbonate of soda paste, and notice how clean the hob is!
5) White vinegar
Put some white vinegar into a spray flask, and use it to spray your hob, before wiping it with a sponge. Next, shine it up with a soft cloth.
