Not at all: Like our old porcelain stove, eliminating any mess before it 'sets' makes clean-up a breeze. The only thing that we must remember is that we should never use abrasive cleaners or tools that may scratch the stove and, where possible, always 'go with the grain' of the metal which, on our stove, is left to right. If you do make a mistake with an abrasive cloth/sponge, the mistake would 'stand out' less. To avoid this, I use a microfiber cloth and HyOx3 orange scented cleaner exclusively. It works like a dream, and buffs the clean stove, in the process.
Here's my routine:
1. when I find that spills/boil-overs have occurred, I turn on the vent and use an oven mitt to swing up the grate (left or right) and spray cleaner over the spills, avoiding the still-hot burners. (As burner contact can't always be avoided, the vent will suck any resulting fumes away from you). Leave it to cool a bit, and walk away (10 min. tops)
2. I return, lift the (now cool) grate, and wipe the mess away, with little effort. It's also now okay to spray and wipe the burners, if they got any mess on them.
3. I always clean with a microfiber cloth and HyOx3 Orange-scented cleaner. By going with the grain, you also buff the appliance.
4. Teach family members to do the same-and store abrasives out of the way, so as to avoid disaster.
