Keep your hob sparkling and no-one will find out about the midnight fry ups.

Ceramic and induction hobs are vulnerable to scratches, so don't scrape the surface or use anything abrasive on it.

Gas hobs can be dismantled somewhat for cleaning - put pan stands in the dishwasher or soak in biological laundry detergent and hot water.

Always check manufacturer's instructions first. Always try a test patch first. If you are unsure as to whether the item you are cleaning is suitable for our instructions, take professional cleaning advice first.
