best is a microfiber towel which you can buy in many shops and can also be cut in small pieces.
  • microfibers lift dust and oils from delicate surfaces without the use of chemicals
  • Ideal for eyeglass lenses, camera lenses, displays, binoculars, microscopes and other delicate surfaces
  • Non-scratching, non-linting
  • Dirt and particles are trapped within knitted tufts of the fibers
  • Ribbon-shaped fibers lift dirt and grease instead of rolling over it

have you tried removing the trap and cleaning it? Look at the cavity to make sure no labels have clogged the area and wash the trap to remove all oil/grease and run on a delicate cycle.

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.

I made hamburgers and the first time the cups melted due to the grease that was draining off. I followed the grilling instructions per the manual and had a greasy mess to clean up. Now I have to find...


The plastic cup melted because it was touching the hot plates and not because of the hot oil!

It is a poor design but with careful use can be fully functional, plastic is used to keep the cost of this budget product down.

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.

How do i service the grease trap without calling a service man to do it?


Be clear that an in-ground grease interceptor cannot be cleaned without a grease trap pumping company. We are referring to a metal grease trap that sits under the 3-compartment sink. Yes it can be cleaned by anyone (crazy enough). I still suggest a professional service company perform the task. I have full directions or instructions now at www.greasetrap.ca/grease-trap-cleaning.htm . Old clothes and a mask are a must.

Cleaning the griddle of our Dynasty Range and standard operations.


This addresses the cleaning question only. I was a chef for 27 yrs.  Once the griddle surface has begun to rust, and this can and even will be the case on a new stove, you have to get agressive with it. You're going to use sanding tools and oil. 
If the griddle top is heavily rusted, I use my electric palm sander fitted with fine emory paper (the black stuff that can get wet). Wet down the surface with a small amount of oil and work the sander evenly over the entire surface in rhythmic strokes from front to back or side to side. I don't have a scientific reason for this but my gut tells me not to work in circles or random strokes. Try to work the entire surface evenly to avoid creating high or low spots. Use a straight edged spatula or I use a dough cutter (flat edge of about 4" and available from culinary store for under $10) to cleanly scrape  the dirty oil off the surface. Sand in shorter durations & clean often to avoid grinding dirty flavor into the surface. 
Once you have it clean its time to season it. With a better oil focusing on flavor, spread a thin layer over the surface and cook at about 250 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Repeat this after every use until you build up a layer of cooked oil almost like enamel to resist rust between uses. This makes a teflon like finish to your griddle.
For regular use and cleaning scrape down immediately after cooking and while the griddle is still hot. When its cool use a hand sanding block you can get from the hardware store. The one I prefer is a firm sponge with emory paper wrapped around it. I store this in a bowl on the shelf above the stove because it is oily and dirty. Alternately you can also use rock salt and a kitchen rag to loosen food particles stuck to the griddle but this makes for messy laundry or throw away rags. We also use viengar or lemon juice and water to loosen food while the griddle is still hot or warm. NEVER USE SOAP!!!!!! You want your food to taste good don't you?
The oil used for cleaning can be anything with minimal flavor like canola oil but the oil used for seasoning the griddle should be a high heat type like sunflower.
Personally I only cook in black cast iron pans and the above method is how I treat them as well. Rock salt and water is all I ever need to clean them between uses.

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.
