Tip & How-To about Kitchen Ranges

Cleaning super tough, baked on, spills that have never, ever been cleaned up before...

When cleaning a griddle top, it makes the job so much easier if you turn your product on to "low heat" first, then apply your cleaner, and you'll end up doing a whole lot less scrubbing.... We sell commercial cleaners for food service equipment, but no matter what you end up using, pre-heating a girddle surface is key... Same thing with fryers....but you boil it instead of low heat. You fill the fryer up with water, heat to a boil, w/your cleaner in it, and boil for a little bit, before rinsing.... It all goes so much smoother when you pre-heat...Good luck

Hoover Core Plus Vacuum Cleaner is no longer cleaning properly. The button on the handle which when turned on has before allowed for a more efficient cleaning of my carpets and allowing easier movement across the floor has stopped working. I believe it's mean't to somehow flush air through the carpet fibres for easier removal of deep down dirt. Why has it crapped itself just over 12 months from purchase and how do we fix it or what will it cost?


Simple. The dirt sucked in is trapped inside a bag with tiny holes. Once these holes are clogged, the vacuum cleaner cannot do its job efficiently. Remove the 'bag' by opening the back, clean it of dust (do not wash it), replace it and close the cover. The cleaner will do its job properly again!

I have a griddler that has been used for greasy cooking--looks baked on. How do I clean the griddler? Water won't do it.


The best way to clean a griddle caked with grease is to turn it on and let it get hot. Then turn it off and while still hot, use a non abrasive cleanser (aka Comet, Bon Ami) with a nylon scrubber to cut through the grease. If the griddle does not have a non stick surface, you can get "screens" to work the grease free. This is what is used on professional grills (usually on a nightly basis). If all else fails, most oven cleaners will do a nice job.

How do I season the griddle that came with my new gas stove?


This is taken verbatim from page 11 of my Frigidaire Gallery range:
"Seasoning, using and caring for the griddle Before first use: -Wash griddle in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry completely. -Apply a thin coat of vegetable oil to the entire surface (front and back of griddle). -Preheat your oven to 350*F. Place the griddle on the upper rack in your oven. -Bake griddle for 1 hour at 350*F, then turn oven OFF and let cool before removing. -The surface may have a tacky feel to it from the seasoning process. If desired, wash the griddle in hot soapy water, rinse well, and dry completely.
Using the griddle: Remove the center burner grate and carefully replace with the griddle (some models). Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.
After each use: -To prevent rusting, store in a dry place and keep uncovered. -After each use, clean with a stiff brush and hot water only. -Do not clean griddle in the dishwasher. -Dry immediately and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to griddle before storing.

Things You’ll Need:

* Television screen cleaning products
* Cleaning schedule
* Microfiber cleaning cloth

Clean Your HDTV Screen Properly
Step1
Read the warning labels on all your household cleaning products. Even glass cleaners might not be suitable for use on an HDTV screen, so check the manufacturer's warnings before you apply anything to the screen.
Step2
Keep chemical cleaners away from your HDTV on cleaning day. The harsh chemicals found in most common cleaning products will actually cause more harm than good.
Step3
Leave liquid cleaners under your sink when cleaning your HDTV screen. A liquid cleaner, whether it be water or a chemical cleaner, will drip down the screen and work its way into the interior of the TV, causing damage to your HDTV. You will be able to easily recognize when this happens, because your screen will develop smudges.
Step4
Use a cloth to clean the HDTV screen. Ideally, you should use a cloth that is recommended for HDTV screens, computer screens and other electronics. The word "microfiber" may be imprinted on the packaging.
Step5
Wet the microfiber cloth slightly. Just a hint of dampness is all you need. If water runs out of the cloth, then it's too wet and will cause smudges.
Step6
Develop a regular cleaning schedule for your HDTV screen. If you dust the screen daily, or at least several times a week, with your microfiber cloth, no other maintenance should be necessary. Not only will frequent cleanings make caring for your HDTV easier, but they will also enhance your viewing experience.
Step7
Prevent messes by asking family members and guests not to touch the television screen. You should also try to make sure children with sticky fingers do not come in contact with the screen.
Step8
Use a high-end cleaning product if you feel that regular dusting is not sufficient. Top-of-the-line television cleaning products are ideal for use on all HDTV screens, plasma screens, projectors and are safe to use around children and animals.

how to clean electric griddle


Hi there!

When it is warm, use a spray cleaner and paper towel to wipe up the grease.
Wooden or non-stick spatulas make excellent scraping tools to take the worst off first.

Use paper towel to wipe up.

For really stubborn deposits, use an oven cleaner - and cover with plastic film. Check in 1 hour, and clean as above.

Soda Crystals dissolved in hot water are excellent at cutting through grease, but may affect aluminium. They work out cheaper than many commercial products.

Hope this helps you.
