How To: Care For Your Range Cooker

Range cookers make a beautiful addition to any home and typically make for a great kitchen centrepiece.

It’s important to take care of your cooker by cleaning it regularly to keep it looking its beautiful best; after all, cooking can be a messy business.

So here in the latest instalment in our series of “how to guides” we take a look at some handy hints and tips for looking after your range cooker.

The Exterior

Making sure your range cooker is still slightly warm, wipe with a damp cloth and a little washing up liquid. You can then polish the surface with a soft cloth to prevent any smears; this is particularly important if you cooker has a stainless steel finish and will leave your cooker looking good as new.

Hob

It’s often best to clean as you cook and for example, wipe any spills immediately to prevent these from becoming burned on.

Avoid using harsh and abrasive cleaning products as these could damage the surface of your cooker. Try simply wiping down the surface of the hob with a damp sponge and soapy water, as often this enough to do the trick.

However, you may require stronger cleaning products to remove more stubborn stains. As a handy tip, try testing any cleaning products you intend to use on an inconspicuous area of your cooker first to check they will not cause any damage.

Ovens

Oven cleaning is often the most hated of all household tasks. However this doesn’t have to be a chore and there are a number of ways you can make the job easier for yourself.

As a handy tip its best to scrape off any burnt on food and residue before applying any cleaning products, to make sure these are as effective as possible.

It can sometimes be worth placing a heat proof bowl, filled with water in your oven and heating for around half an hour or so. The steam produced will help soften any grime and burnt on stains making them easier to remove.

Make sure to avoid caustic oven cleaners, instead stick to milder cleaners and soapy water, with enough elbow grease this can be enough to remove even the most stubborn stains.

Don’t forget about the oven shelves too. Remove these from inside your oven and clean in some hot soapy water using a scourer.

Hopefully this quick how-to guide will help you to ensure you range cooker keeps looking and working at its best!
