Keeping your gas oven clean is important, but it doesn’t need to eat up a huge chunk of your time. When performed in a routine and appropriate manner, gas oven maintenance is simple, safe, and straightforward—the way it should be! Check out these tips for keeping your oven cleaning hassle-free.
Before you begin to clean any part of your gas stove or oven, make sure it’s completely turned off and cooled.
Avoid using chemicals in and around your gas nozzles. Flammable chemicals and gas are a bad mix. If these nozzles become clogged with spilled food and other culinary byproducts, brush the area gently with a soft brush. Clear all debris to ensure that the gas burner continues to function reliably and appropriately.
Follow Manufacturer Recommendations:
The makes and models of gas cooking appliances vary greatly, especially over the span of time. Newer models call for different types of maintenance than many older models. Therefore, it is important to take note of recommended cleaning methods and to know which cleaning products should be avoided. Also, make sure you understand which parts of the appliance can safely be removed for cleaning. A layperson may cause damage to a unit by opening burner boxes and other appliance parts.
