Proper Maintenance of Range, Stove And Oven

Broiler pan

In most ovens the broiler pan comes in porcelain-steels. In order to maintain it properly, you will need to clean it with a non-abrasive cleanser. In case you wish to replace the broiler pan, you can always try the one that is called Broiler Pan and Insert.

Control panel

The majority of ovens or range control panels come in glass or painted metal. It is safe to use non-abrasive cleaners to clean them. You can choose from a collection of stove, range or oven and deodorizer parts.

Keep in mind that spraying cleaners on the control panel is not a good idea. Just put some of the substance on a damp and soft rag and wipe the surface afterwards.

Cooktop

Burner drip pans (bowls)

In most cases you will need to replace the drip pans and bowls under the grates on a gas range or stove as well as under the heating element of the electric stove or range every couple of years. This is due to the fact that if those are stained, you will be unable to clean them completely.

Glass cooktops and windows

Remember that you should clean ceramic and glass cooktops only with products that were specifically manufactured for that same purpose.

You can clean your glass oven windows with any oven glass cleaner, but note that it is dangerous to clean hot glass surfaces.

Knob care

It is absolutely safe to clean your knobs on the range or oven using only a little dish detergent as well as a damp rag. However, in case the lettering and the numbers have worn away, it is best to replace the knobs to begin with.

Light bulbs

You can always replace light bulbs in the oven or range, but you may have to remove the glass covering first in order to reach it. The majority of interior oven lights need a universal 40 watt appliance bulb.

Oven

If the oven is self-cleaning, it is best to read the manual first in order to learn how this feature works. It functions through heating the interior of the oven to the temperature so hot that it can incinerate the residue inside the oven. In most cases, you should avoid cleaning a self-cleaning oven’s interiors with a spray cleaner. The owner’s manual will provide you with more accurate info.
