Cleaning and care instructions for your electric range’s exterior.
We recommend wiping away spills on a timely basis so that spills do not become hardened and difficult to remove. View our How-to-Videos on the Bosch YouTube Channel to learn how to clean a glass cooktop and how to clean stainless steel.
Warning: Do not use any cleaning agent on the glass while the surface is hot. The resulting fumes may be hazardous to your health and result in death or injury. A blade scraper may be used while the cooktop surface is hot.
Wipe off spatters with a clean, damp sponge, cloth or paper towel. White vinegar may be used if smudges remain.
To clean the glass ceramic area of the cooktop: Apply a small amount of glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream to a soft, clean cloth. Wipe this on the cooktop surface (which has cooled down) and then buff with a clean, dry towel. You may use any appropriate glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream.
To clean glass surfaces other than the cooktop: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry or use glass cleaner.
To clean painted surfaces: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not use powder cleaning agents, steel wool pads, oven cleaners and other abrasive cleaning materials.
To clean stainless steel: Wipe with the grain when cleaning stainless steel. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleaning agent or stainless steel cleaner with a soft cloth. Wipe dry to avoid water marks. Do not use cleaning materials that contain chlorine since it is corrosive to stainless steel. Warning: Some stainless steel cleaners are known to have negative effects on materials other than stainless steel. Make sure to apply stainless steel cleaner to stainless steel components only! Stainless steel conditioning cloths can be purchased in the Bosch Accessories & Parts Store (part number 00311134).
To clean hard water spots: Minerals in some water can be transferred onto the cooktop surface and cause stains. Apply undiluted white vinegar with a soft, clean cloth. Then, recondition with glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream as noted above.
Cleaners to always avoid: Cleaners that contain ammonia or chlorine bleach, caustic cleaners (such as Easy Off®), abrasive cleaners, dishwashing agents, metal scouring pads, scrub sponges, soap-filled scouring pads, powdery cleaners, and flammable cleaners. These products may damage, scratch, and dull your cooktop.
Cleaning and care instructions for your electric range’s interior.
See the electric range’s Use & Care Guide for instructions on how to activate the oven’s self-cleaning process. Wipe off spills, pools of oil and excessive debris before activating the self-cleaning process. Not doing so can cause smoke and possibly a fire. Do not clean oven parts or accessories in the self-cleaning oven. The light in the oven cannot be turned on during the self-cleaning process. The special heat-resistant enamel and the polished components in the oven can become discolored over time. This is normal and does not affect operation. Do not use scouring pads, abrasive cleaners and commercial oven cleaners (such as EasyOff®). These items may damage the oven. Remove all accessories, racks and broiling pans before activating the self-cleaning process.
To clean the flat rack: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not clean the rack in the self-cleaning oven. If flat racks are cleaned in the oven during the self-cleaning mode, they will lose their shiny finish and may not glide smoothly. If this happens wipe the rack edges with a small amount of vegetable oil, then wipe it off.
To clean telescopic racks: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Avoid getting cleansing powder or residue in the telescopic slides. Re-lubricate the telescopic slides as needed by using high-temperature food-grade lubricants. Do not clean the rack in the oven during self-cleaning mode.
To clean the broiling pan and grid: Wash with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not clean the broiling pan and grid in the oven during self-cleaning mode.
To clean the fiberglass gasket: Do not clean the fiberglass gasket.
