What is the best way to clean an induction cooktop?

Induction cooktops look great when kept clean and sparkling. Unfortunately, spills and splatters can easily bake on and harden on your ceramic or glass cooktop. Cleaners that use harsh abrasives can scratch glossy surfaces, so the best way to keep your flat cooktop clean is to use a cleaner specially formulated for glass and ceramic cooktops. Bar Keepers Friend uses a citric acid-based formulation that makes cleaning your induction cooktop quick and safe.

How should I choose a cooktop cleaner?

We recommend selecting a cooktop cleaner based on three major criteria: formulation, effectiveness, and price.

  • Formulation—Only use a cleaner that was specially formulated for glossy surfaces. Abrasive cleaners may initially do the job, but over time they can scratch or dull the surface of your ceramic or glass cooktop. Cleaners designed for induction cooktops will include the term “cooktop cleaner” in the product name.
  • Effectiveness—Bar Keepers Friend Multipurpose Cooktop Cleaner uses a citric acid-based formulation to quickly remove hardened food residue without scratching glossy surfaces. This uniquely gentle, yet effective formulation delivers superior cleaning results for ceramic and glass cooktops.
  • Price—Cooktop cleaners can be expensive. Bar Keepers Friend keeps prices affordable, even for specialty products. Our Multipurpose Cooktop Cleaner retails for up to 50% less than other national brands. 

Can I use my glass cooktop cleaner on other surfaces?

Some cleaners rely on harsh abrasives to remove hardened materials, which may make those products unsuitable for cooktops or other surfaces. We designed Bar Keepers Friend Multipurpose Cooktop Cleaner to quickly and safely remove even hardened stains and residue from glossy surfaces without scratching, making it an ideal cooktop cleaner as well as suitable for other more delicate surfaces.
