Cleaning the oven
The oven should be kept clean at all times. A
build-up of fats or other foodstuffs could result in
a fire, especially in the grill pan.
Before using any cleaning materials on your oven, check
that they are suitable and that their use is recommended
by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as
they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives should
also be avoided.
Never use steam or steam machines to clean the
Regularly wipe over the control panel, oven door and door
seal using a soft cloth well wrung out in warm water to
which a little washing up liquid has been added.
To prevent damaging or weakening the door glass
panels avoid the use of the following:
Household detergent and bleaches
Impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
Bath/Sink stain removers
Clean the outer and inner door glass using warm soapy
water. Should the inner door glass become heavily soiled
it is recommended that a cleaning product such as Hob
Brite, or Bar Keepers Friend is used.
The enamelled oven cavity is best cleaned whilst the
oven is still warm.
Wipe the oven over with a soft cloth soaked in warm
soapy water after each use. From time to time it will be
necessary to do a more thorough cleaning, using a
proprietary oven cleaner.
