I saved this info from a thread from last Nov. Joanp posted Wolf's cleaning advice.

Griddle surfaces
1. While surface is warm, poor water on so that it bubbles. Like deglazing a pan. Use a spatula to scrap off burnt on food that now bubbles up.
2. Poor on more water, and then use a Green Scotchbrite pad with a folded towel on top to protect your hand from any steam. This will scrape/scrub the griddle surface clean. Note: 3M manufactures a griddle cleaning system with special cleaning liquids and specific tools to achieve the same results.
3. For stubborn stains, you can use the Scotchbrite pad with a cleanser like Barkeepers Friend or Bonami. Avoid products with bleach.
4. Once clean, spray or wipe on oil to protect surface from oxidation. If you get an orange color, this is oxidation/rust and should be wiped/scrubbed off with a fine grade steel wool.
5. Light scratches may occur with the use of your Scotchbrite pad. This is normal.
6. Vinegar can be helpful for the removal of stains and discoloring of the griddle surface.

That said, I agree that a darkened, seasoned surface is more desirable for cooking. I plan to get a cover for my griddle, so I don't have to worry about how it looks.
