Tip & How-To about Kitchen Ranges
Keeping your cooking appliances in the top working condition, takes a little bit of tender loving care from you. You use them everyday and they need to be taken care of properly to continue to give you the best performance possible.
Most people are aware that they can remove the parts and pieces on the tops, but do not know that the knobs can easily be removed to clean them and behind them. By simply pulling out away from the appliance, most knobs can be removed. This allows you to easily clean the knob and the area behind it.
The tops of many newer appliances often need special care. Watch out for abrasive cleaners. Many of the cream type cleaners have particles in them that are abrasive. A good glass cleaner will often work well for many of the different types of tops.
Oven can be cleaned with an oven cleaner. Be sure to give the oven cleaners enough time to work. The hard burnt residue that is left in the oven will take time to penetrate through.
Be patient and do not get in a hurry. My advice is to not use the self cleaning mode on your oven, I have seen many, many, people looking for help because their oven has failed to operate correctly, or even unlock, after running the self cleaning feature.
Another thing that gets overlooked many times is the oven light. The bulb blows out and it is not missed until you need it. Check you oven light to make sure that it is working. These also are not a normal light bulb. They are designed to withstand the high heat of the oven environment. It is a good idea to get a replacement bulb and have it on hand just in case yours burns out at a bad time. Change the bulb is really very simple if you have the replacement bulb available when you need it.
These simple things will help you to keep your cooking appliances in top working condition. They serve you well everyday. Give them some attention to keep them working for you.
