Secrets to cleaning granite Raclette cooktop?

jp96 | Jan 3, 201508:24 AM     29

We have been enjoying our new Swissmar Stelvio granite grill for the holidays. I did put some grapeseed oil on the granite before cooking for the first time, and did not use any marinated food. Afterward, we let it cool but we had a heck of a time getting the discoloration and caramelization off the stone. Last night we used it again with some beef I had marinated. This time we soaked it in vinegar with some baking soda and it was better but I could not get it completely clean. I resorted to using an S.O.S. pad even though the instruction say not to use anything abrasive.

Does anyone have any secrets to cleaning this, otherwise I'm thinking this appliance might have to take up a spot in our basement.

Thanks very much!
