Today, many users instead of the usual models of gas and electric stoves install hobs. Such panels can be both gas and electric and even combined. In order for such equipment to serve long and efficiently, you need to be able to care for it properly. For regular surface cleaning, you will need a soft sponge or a special sponge. This means for cleaning the hob should be chosen depending on the material from which its panel is made. The materials can be as follows: stainless steel, glass, enamel, and ceramics. The hob made of glass ceramics is very fragile. In no case should such surfaces be cleaned with detergents containing abrasive substances. Glass cleaning liquid is best suited for cleaning such surfaces. It is better to eliminate any liquid on glass ceramics immediately so that it does not have time to harden, otherwise, it will be much more difficult to clean it. Enameled surfaces can be easily cleaned with a soft sponge and a special detergent. With the help of such a tool, you can remove not only grease from the stove but also various plaques. Basic rules for the operation of hobs: – do not start cleaning the hob while it is still hot; – never use various solutions and stain removers for cleaning surfaces; – do not use metal brushes or sponges to clean the surfaces, as you may damage the hob; – do not wipe the panel with a sponge soaked in dish detergent. The best option for caring for such surfaces for cooking is a special cleaning agent that you can find in any store with household chemicals. With the use of such a substance, you can quickly and effectively clean your stove of plaque and dirt. First of all, cleaning the stove should begin with the removal of dried food particles. This can be done with a special scraper, it can be either plastic or metal. After that, you need to wipe the surface with a cotton cloth soaked in a special solution. In order to maintain the perfect condition of the stove, you should always clean it immediately after the end of the cooking process. It is clear that before this it is necessary that the stove is completely cooled. With this approach, greasy spots will not have time to dry completely, so they can be removed very easily and quickly. Cooker burners are the most vulnerable place of the equipment, so be very careful when cleaning them. Need a hob repair? It’s time to call for professional appliance repair in San Diego County.
