Cooking Appliance Care: Tips For Cleaning Your Oven/Range/Stove/Cooktop

If you’re like many of our customers, you probably have some questions about the best way to clean your new (or not-so-new) cooking appliance.

Every appliance is different, but here are some general tips for keeping your oven, range, stove or cooktop looking its best.

General Cooking Appliance Cleaning Tips:
• Always wait until the appliance has cooled before cleaning. Aside from the obvious danger of getting burned, many cleaners will create an unpleasant odor when used on hot surfaces.
• Avoid abrasive cleaners, as they may permanently scratch stainless steel surfaces.
• Clean up spills immediately. Some cooking liquids and salt may “pit” or stain cooking surfaces.
• Remove grease and fingerprints using a spray degreaser. To avoid streaking, spray the cleaner onto a cloth first and then immediately wipe clean.

Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances:
• Clean stainless steel surfaces using a nonabrasive stainless steel cleaner applied with a soft, lint-free cloth. Follow by lightly wiping the surface with dampened microfiber cloth. Next, polish with a dry chamois.
• For best results, always wipe stainless steel surfaces with the direction of the grain and keep the cloth in continuous contact with the surface.
