Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I need to clean brown stain and scale (?) from two 'plastic' tea kettles, one a Chefmate, the other a Kitchen Gourmet. The latter is much more stained than the other, with entire interior incuding spout discolored. How to clean spout without scratching, damaging it? First kettle only stained on round disc heat element. Thanks for the help when owners manual not to be found. --Andrea

An awesome product that you spray on and let sit overnight. then simply wash it off. (Non Toxic / Non corrosive) No gloves required but does have an odd odor so I would let it soak outside. Heavy accumulations may require a second treatment.

Also great on shower heads. Remove it.. place it in a glass overnight and then re-install the next moring. Does not discolor anything. Ditto for shower enclosures and tile. Why this product is not in great demand is a mystery.

THIS WILL Clean it.

It likely will do no harm and I can always keep it around for shower heads and other jobs. I'll let you know how the kettle turns out using this unusual fix. Love all the additional info of where to call, buy, etc. Great job! --Andrea

No steam coming out of iron, does it need descaling and if so how do you do it? Thanks Iron is Wahl zx506-1


Hi, Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron... If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that... For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water, and then use the bottled water instead...

I can;t find manual and I want to clean my keurig coffee maker


You may be able to find the User Guide for your Keurig machine here:

http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/user-guides-and-help


Your brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Full de-scaling insturctions can be found here:

We have a sunbeam peace and quiet kettle ke7500s it is approx 3months old. When we reboil the water there's always a tainted water taste in the tea and coffee .The taste is so bad we tip out the hot...


As you know friend, some water when it is boiled it really taste bad so I suggest use a water purifier to filter other out dirt, dust, other particles in a water street supply. Sure when you drink the water (not boiled) it doesn't taste bad, that's normal because we can't distinguish it easily. Also try to clean your kettle using baking soda it will eliminate tainted taste.
I hope my advice help you with your problem.

I need the food code manual for my chefmate digital scale


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and Installation Instructions as required.


I hope this helps.

I have dried on grease stains on the bottom of my pots and also there is a whitish colored film that remains after the pots are washed and dried. I need to know how to clean them.


Spray Oven Cleaner all over stains, SEAL inside plastic garbage bag, leave bag for 2 days, wash pans with scrubber pad, stains should be soft and come off with a little rubbing.

Have a Chefmate digital stainless steel scale. It weighs in grams and ounces. It was changed accidently to grams but I want it in ounces. Not sure how to do it and misplaced owner's manual.


Easy! On my Chefmate scale what I have to do is toggle so that "weight" is blinking. Then hit "0" - that is zero. Now you can change back and forth from grams to oz!

I have 3large brown stains on the lower portion of the back panel


Probably rust stains bleeding through, try CLR. Don't get it too wet or the panel behind it will rust more. Use one of those vacuum type cleaning machines that spray a little and picks it it back up Good Luck. We owe this attempt in honor of Billy Mayes.Good Luck

If you think the window is stained, you ought to see the rest of the inside! Wife is probably right. (wink, wink, nod, nod)
Actually, you can take the cover off, remove the front panel without much effort and clean everything and get a lot more life out of it. Microwaves usually die because of heat related problems caused by buildup of yuck on the guts.
Hope Ya Make your Wife Happy!
