How to avoid cracks on a ceramic hob?
It is helpful to take certain precautions when using your ceramic hob, in order to avoid cracking it.
- Never pour cold water on a hot plate.
- It goes without saying that you should never climb or walk on a ceramic hob.
- Avoid placing on the glass plate other objects than your pots and pans. A sudden change in pressure caused by a falling object (salt, pepper, etc.) could crack it.
- Clean your plate well after it has finished serving.
- Avoid sliding your cookware on the ceramic hob. It is recommended to lift them to move them.
- Avoid putting your vegetables on your plate because the granules of soil or sand that are housed in it could scratch it.
- Use a damp cloth to clean your ceramic hob (as a rule: avoid abrasive sponges and powdered cleaners).
Clear the crack marks on my ceramic hob
1. Baking soda
Mix it baking soda to water in order to obtain a paste that is both supple, liquid and lump-free.
Apply this paste in small circular motions on the stripes, using a soft cloth.
Remember to remove the remaining bicarbonate with a second soft, clean cloth that will completely dry the ceramic hob.
2. The polish cleaners
Soak a soft cloth clean with a polish cleaner for windows, mirrors and chrome and clean the ceramic hob in small circular motions.
First test the product on a small area of the plate to check for effectiveness.
To note: the vitro cooking plate must be cold so that it is possible to erase the scratches.
Warning: these tricks deal only with the microstripes on your ceramic hob. In the event of a larger crack, the plate must be disconnected immediately as it is very dangerous.
