Lots of plastics have a very low melting point and such plastic coming into contact with a very hot surface would probably vaporise fairly explosively and that is likely to be the cause.

    But can I fix the ceramic?

  • Vernon Taylor May 07, 2017

    Sorry it is beyond my experience but I suspect it is unlikely as most repair compounds are bound with resins that are unlikely to withstand the very high temperatures.
    I suggest you enquire with the hob manufacturer and then perhaps a number of repairers and the suppliers of specialised industrial repair solutions.

SOURCE: Refrigerator drip pans too expensive are there alternatives?

Whats the sponge for ??
Caution with the type of plastic tray you use.
Theory is - yes you can do what you suggest - However - dependant on the location of the drip tray (above motor ! ! ! ) some plastics will 'perish' and become brittle / fibrous.

What is the advantage of gas range than gas stove?


There is much confusion about those terms, especially when used by suppliers / online webshops. A great indepth article about the issue can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/gds/What-s-the-Difference-Between-a-Stove-and-Range-/10000000177628290/g.html

Below is - imho - the most related paragraph:

'Many people use the terms oven, stove, and range interchangeably. However, buyers that plan to purchase a stove or a range should understand the purported meanings of each of these common words. First, the term stove technically refers only to the stovetop, which includes a number of burners (typically four to six) and is used for surface cooking such as boiling, frying, pan-searing, and other methods. The oven is an enclosed device that is used for baking, broiling, roasting, and other cooking methods. It employs concentrated heat within the enclosed area, which is usually delivered via heated coils in the top and the bottom of the stove. The term "range," as defined in Webster's Dictionary, actually refers to the combination of stovetop and oven into one kitchen appliance.'

Hope this helps :)

Peeling nonstick coating


It can't be fixed. In the future, use only plastic cooking utensils so they won't scratch off the non stick coating. You can line the pan with foil if it is a baking pan, if it's a frying pan, there's no fixing it.

Should I cover my roasting pan or not?


when using a roasting pan, it depends on the type of meat and the recipe if you should cover the pan or not.
meat with a high fat content eg duck doesnt need to be covered.
lean cuts should be covered when roasted for a long time to keep the juices and soften the meat.

What is the difference between roasting pans and broilers?


Roasting pants are for big peicesof meat becuase they are big, deep pans so the meat will cook and be flavoured from its juice.
A broiler has shallow sides so the meat cooks faster. It also has a slotted bottom so the pan drains.

Your Owner's Guide for the Rival 18 qt. Roaster Oven with Buffet Server can be found here:

http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RO180BR-C_43_18972586.PDF

Refer to page 6 for complete instructions.

You do not add water or anything below the roasting pan. You fill your roasting pan 1/2 to 3/4 full with water, place in the empty serving dishes, then preheat at 350 degrees until hot (about 1/2 hour).

Then fill the serving dishes and reduce heat to 250 degrees. You may need to adjust heat and more hot water if necessary.

Stovetop ceramic burner turned black and smooth


Do you have a proper ceramic top scraper ?, if not buy one (about £10 UK)

Get a bottle of cream cleanser and a plastic type pan scrubber

Soak the area with warm water , pour on some cream cleanser and work it in with the scrubber , when you have formed a nice creamy froth use the scraper to get underneath the scorching

It is a lot of hard work but it does come off
