Best Practices to Maintain Your Oven
We’re here to help fix your oven when things go a bit wrong, but we can also impart tips to help your oven stand the test of time. Let’s delve into some top tips for oven maintenance.
Clean with Care
It’s certainly important to keep your oven clean if you want it to last, but you must remember to clean with care. Ovens have various components, some of which shouldn’t be exposed to large amounts of water or cleaning liquids and foams.
The best way to clean your oven is to clear up spillages as soon as you notice them (and your oven is cool). Following on from this, investing in a professional oven cleaning service will give you the peace of mind that all elements of your cooker are clean. The intervals at which your oven should be cleaned will depend on its usage. Ovens used every day may benefit from a deep clean every 6 months. For lighter usage, every 12 months may be more suitable and beneficial.
To avoid spillages from marking your oven’s surface, invest in an oven liner and a roasting bag for food such as meat and veg.
Check the Door
Sometimes, the seal around the oven door may wear and not perform as it should. In other circumstances, you may find your oven door has a crack or there’s a gap between the door and the lining that surrounds it. Checking this area of your oven will ensure your oven is performing at optimal capacity and that no heat is escaping.
Take Care of the Hinges
Slamming your oven door shut or keeping heavy trays placed on an open oven door can cause the hinges and/or the door to weaken. Avoid these things and save yourself the hassle of potentially damaging these vital components.
