Stove / Oven


Cleaning and Safety

Cleaning an oven is often the most challenging task in the kitchen as food leftovers, spills and burnt-on fat soil the oven inside and out. However, using the right products and technique will save you lots of time and efforts.

The inside of the oven, the top of the stove and the exhaust fans and filters above the stove need to be regularly cleaned so that the appliance stays in good working order and the kitchen keeps tidy and smells clean.

ALWAYS make sure that the appliance is turned off and unplugged before attempting to clean or fix any problem(s).
