HOW TO CLEAN THE GLASS CERAMIC AND MAKE IT SHINE

It is like a mirror and with all the use it supports sometimes it looks somewhat worn. The key is to clean it well. This class (with several tricks) will restore all the splendor to your plate

VITROCERAMIC OR INDUCTION?

When it comes to cleaning, it doesn’t matter when it comes to leaving the plate shiny. However, they have different characteristics. You know which one is? Both are electric cookers but they have many differences in terms of heat transfer and composition.

IF IT IS A CERAMIC HOB

It is a smooth vitrified ceramic hob, which has a great resistance to heat and the ability to transmit it quickly. Under the glass surface there are several circular resistors, which are the stove. They heat up and transmit the heat you need to cook. Once you turn it on you can’t put your hand on it because it gets red hot.

INDUCTION HOBS

Induction cookers work with a powerful magnet that is electrically stimulated. This creates a magnetic field that generates heat on the metal surface (saucepan or saucepan) that is on top. The surface is also made of smooth ceramic glass as in the case of the vitro.

A TIP THAT WORKS WHEN IT COMES TO CLEANING …

Act quickly! Always clean the surface of your ceramic or induction hob after cooking. The longer it takes to remove the stains, the more solid and sticky they will remain and the more it will cost to remove them. Do you want to know the pros and cons of each cooking system?

HOW TO CLEAN THE GLASS CERAMIC WELL?

Its surface is easy to clean because it is smooth. It is advisable to use a specific product to remove incrustations, although it is not necessary to apply it every time you cook, unless the surface of the glass ceramic plate has been particularly dirty. The reason that not just any product will work is that the glass of the vitro is delicate and there are chemicals (abrasive products) that make it lose its shine.

A LITTLE PRODUCT AND LET IT ACT

Before, remove with the help of a cloth or kitchen paper the remains of food that are on top once the vitro is cold. Now you can apply a jet of glass ceramic cleaner on the stained surface. Spread without removing the product and let it act. Then remove with a damp cloth. Always use soft cloths or cloths. And finally, dry.

THE SCRAPER, ESSENTIAL

Yes, this utensil is essential to clean the glass ceramic. With it you will remove the stains of solidified liquids that fall during cooking. And don’t ever use knives (or similar) or an aluminum scourer, which could scratch the surface.

LEMON, A NATURAL REMEDY TO CLEAN THE VITRO

Lemon acidity softens tough stains on the glass ceramic surface. Add a few drops of the lemon juice, leave on and then scratch.

VINEGAR BRIGHTENS THE GLASS CERAMIC

It is another of those home remedies that are used a lot in cleaning. Vinegar brightens the surface. Put a few drops on a soft cloth and wipe it over the entire surface of the vitro. You can also clean it if it is very dirty with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, applied on the stain.how to clean a ceramic hob 4. Ice to remove stains

ICE TO REMOVE STAINS

Rub a solidified or hard-to-remove stain with an ice cube for one minute. Then pass the scraper and you will see how the stain disappears because the ice helps you remove it.

As you have already seen, in terms of cleaning there are not many differences between ceramic and induction hob since both have a glass surface, which is the one to be cleaned. With a specific cleaning product and other homemade tricks you can clean burnt and stuck stains from the glass ceramic and improve its shine. But you may be wondering which one is best for you because of the cooking system, which as we have seen is different.

TO PREVENT STAINS FROM APPEARING ON THE SURFACE, ALWAYS CLEAN YOUR VITRO OR INDUCTION HOB WHEN IT IS COLD.

Vitroceramic and induction are two very different electric cooker systems, which also imply different energy savings and this may make you decide on one or the other.

VITROCERAMIC

Advantage

  • You can use all kinds of containers, no special pots or pans.
  • Warming is progressive. There are some recipes or foods that should not be heated too quickly because they can burn or lose their properties.
  • Even if there are impurities on the surface, its effectiveness is not affected. The heat continues to flow.

Drawbacks

  • It takes time to heat up. If we are in a hurry, it can be a hassle.
  • Cooling of the surface is not immediate. Thus, if you leave a container, the content will continue to cook, which is good to take advantage of the residual heat in cooking, but we must not forget that it will remain hot for a while before cleaning, for example.

INDUCTION

Advantage

  • Heats twice as fast as a glass ceramic because the electromagnetic field acts quickly on the metal surface of the container and transmits the heat at high speed. It is perfect for bringing liquids to a boil and cooking vegetables, rice, pasta or simply heating a soup.
  • Spends less than the glass ceramic. As it only acts on the metal surface of the container, it does not have additional heat losses. Starting the magnet requires less energy than heating a resistor.
  • The cooking temperature is controlled with great precision. The magnet has no caloric inertia. It turns off and cools down, does not continue cooking or heating.

Drawbacks

  • It requires specific pots and pans. The base must be made of a metal that interacts with the magnet. Therefore, clay pots and other artisan kitchen containers cannot be used.
  • Its price is somewhat higher. But it must also be taken into account that the investment may be convenient in the long run due to energy savings.
