How to give your range cooker a health check

Our range cookers get a lot of use, so important that you know how to take care of it properly. Whether you are a new owner or have been using them for years, here are a few tips that will help you to keep your range cooker in tip-top condition with minimum fuss.

1 – Be careful when cleaning
Range cookers will be hot so you should take care not to burn yourself. You should also remember not to leave any plastic cleaning bottles or cloths on the top of your cooker as they may melt or catch fire.

2 – Monitor oil
If your range cooker is oil powered then you should keep an eye on how much is left, especially if you are using it regularly. If your tank runs dry then air can be drawn inside causing damage. 

3 – E-cloths
Normal cloths can leave nasty smears across an enamel surface. E-cloths are designed to tackle everything from simple grease marks to tough stuck-on stains and only need water to work. They also work on glass, chrome and stainless steel.

4- Cleaning features
Keep an eye out for extra features like pyrolytic cleaning. This is a feature which turns any leftover burnt food crumbs into ash which can then easily be collected later on – saving you a lot of time. Some may also come with catalytic oven liners which help prevent a build-up of grease.

5 – Servicing
It’s very important that you get your oven professionally serviced regularly. At least once a year is best as this can prevent breakdowns and ensure that your oven performs as well as it can, all year long.

6–  Acidic spills
Liquids which are acidic can cause damage to enamel so they should be wiped up straight away; this includes milk, lemon juice and fruit juices.

7 - Clean as you go
Without a doubt, the best way to clean your range cooker is to do small jobs regularly, if you can clean as you are cooking then you will save yourself a mammoth job later on when the dirt can no longer be avoided.
