Cleaning and care

This Electrolux barbecue has been constructed from select
grade stainless steel which, if not cared for, may discolour
over time. To keep your barbecue looking its best we
recommend that the cooking surfaces are cleaned after
every use.
Please ensure that your barbecue is switched off and
has cooled down before following the instructions
Cast iron plates
The cooking plates and grills have a porcelain enamelled
NOTE: Many food acids, juices, marinades and sauces
contain highly acidic elements that will slowly attack the
surface of the cast iron if not removed immediately after
After use remove all solid material from the cooking surface
using a brass bristled barbecue brush or plastic bristled
scourer. Wipe off the remaining grease with paper towelling.
Gently wash the surfaces with a cloth or sponge and a mild
detergent and hot water. Dry components immediately and
coat the cooking surface with a light layer of cooking oil.
This protects the surface when not in use. Do not clean the
cooking surface in a dishwasher
Cleaning stainless steel surfaces
Do not use abrasive or caustic cleaners, scourers or
metal scrapers on stainless steel surfaces as they may
permanently scratch and damage your barbecue.
Wash all stainless steel components, including the
slimline lid, the roasting hood, tubular frame and control
knobs with a soft dishcloth using hot soapy water
The barbecue interior can be wiped down with a soft
cloth in hot soapy water. The rear panel of the interior is
removable for easy cleaning
Ensure that all surfaces are dried with a clean dry cloth
tips and information
Sometimes stainless steel surfaces are affected by a brown
discolouration called tea staining. This usually occurs in
areas which use high heat and can be removed using
specialised stainless steel cleaners. For best results, we
recommend that specialised cleaners be used regularly on
all stainless steel components. You will find these cleaners
at the Electrolux spare parts outlets.
Take extra care (particularly when cleaning on and around
the control knobs) to ensure that water and soapy residue
do not enter the control panel.
Care should also be taken not to disturb the spark

Cleaning inside the barbecue
The inside of the burner box should be regularly cleaned to
prevent any build up of food residues.
To access the burner box remove cooking plates and heat
distributors. To remove rear heat shield lift to disengage
clips. To remove burners undo screws securing burners at
rear, and lift out carefully to prevent scratching. The base
heat shields can also be lifted out.
Ensure that all oil and food residues are removed.
After cleaning complete, re-assemble ensuring burner is
correctly located over the injector.

Cleaning the oil reservoirs
The barbecue has a unique oil management system which
drains oil to the front into easily removed reservoirs which
should be cleaned after each use.
To remove reservoirs, pull upwards from the front of the
barbecue and dispose of the contents of the catchment
responsibly. Rinse oil reservoirs in warm soapy water. The
reservoirs can be placed in the dishwasher if desired.
Powder coated panels
Do not use abrasive or caustic cleaners, scourers or metal
scrapers as they may permanently damage your barbecue.
Wash all powder coated panels with a soft dishcloth using
warm soapy water. Ensure that all surfaces are dried with a
clean dry cloth.
Side table timber
The hardwood used on the lift up side tables has been
treated with a light coating of protection oil. Clean surface
using a soft sponge and a solution of mild soapy water.
Wash down afterwards with clean water.
To maintain strength, avoid discolouration and fading, the
timber must be protected using a suitable outdoor timber
furniture oil. Re-oiling of timber will need to be conducted at
regular intervals depending upon the amount of exposure to
the sun and rain.
Minor scuffs and scratches can easily be covered with a
coat of oil. Deep scratches need to be sanded out and
oiling concentrated in that area until the lustre is uniform.
Use of a weatherproof cover will help to minimise the
maintenance required.
tips and information
The stainless steel panels may distort while in use but will
return to normal when cold.
When the barbecue is not being used it is recommended to
keep it covered.
If the barbecue is to be stored indoors, remove the gas
cylinder and store the cylinder in a ventilated outdoor area.
