How to Properly Maintain and Cleaning Your Kitchen Appliances
Grease is the number one problem while cleaning the kitchen because it usually affects various kitchen appliances, such as the cooker, oven, extractor fan, toaster, and other small kitchen devices and equipment. Regular maintenance is crucial for such devices to work properly, but the schedule of cleaning varies depending on the type of device or equipment.
The manufacturers of such appliances often fail to attach a document about the cleaning schedule and proper way of cleaning with the user manual. This is why we’ve prepared some universal tips for cleaning various kitchen appliances.
Avoid the use of aggressive detergents
The easiest way of cleaning grease from kitchen appliances is using industrial aggressive detergents and abrasives, but such cleaning agents can interfere with the performance of devices and even cause a breakdown of electrical devices.
Instead of using abrasives or aggressive cleaning agents, you should consider using cleaning products which contain natural ingredients such as white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda or sodium carbonate decahydrate.
Always read the user manual to find the safest way of cleaning each device.
Regularly maintain devices after each use
Instead of letting the grease tighten, you should wipe kitchen appliances immediately after each use. That will save you time and money, as you’ll be able to clean them using only a wet cloth. Burnt fat is your worst enemy, so get rid of it until it’s too late.
Note the cleaning schedule to boost the performance of each kitchen appliance
Each user manual should include a section dedicated to the cleaning schedule. To boost the performance of your kitchen devices, you should maintain them regularly. The excessive amount of accumulated fat might cause the device to fail, so you should follow the instructions from the user guide.
For example, you should clean the carbon filters of your extractor fan to improve its performance, to keep your cooker and oven clean to prevent combustion of grease and food residues or contact the professionals for tips on a proper grease trap cleaning schedule.
Use of cleaning devices
You should avoid using cleaning devices such as steam cleaners since the steam damages electrical devices. If you want to clean burnt fat, you should apply a thin layer of a suitable cleaning product or merely wipe it using the wet cloth and let it stay wet for a while.
