CLEANING INSIDE THE OVEN AND GRILL COMPARTMENTS

CLEANING INSIDE THE OVEN AND
GRILL COMPARTMENTS
The sides and back of the oven and grill
compartments are coated with Stayclean enamel.
The Stayclean surfaces inside the ovens should not
be cleaned manually. See Page 30 'Care of
Stayclean Surfaces'.
The vitreous enamel base in the grill compartment
and the fan oven base can be cleaned using normal
oven cleaners or aerosol oven cleaners with care.
Ensure that the manufacturers instructions are
followed and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on Stayclean
surfaces and must not come into contact with
the elements or the door seal as this may cause
damage.
CARE OF STAYCLEAN SURFACES
Stayclean surfaces destroy splashes of food and fats
when the oven temperature is raised to around
220°C.
It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or two
per week to ensure continued good performance
from the Stayclean finish.
HINTS AND TIPS
l
Manual cleaning of Stayclean surfaces is not
recommended.  Damage will occur if oven sprays or
abrasives of any kind are used.
l
Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stayclean surface may occur in time. This DOES
NOT affect the Stayclean properties in any way.
l
A good time to allow the oven to run on is after
the weekly roast. After removing the roast, turn
the oven up to 220°C and allow to run for an hour
or so.  It is important NOT to allow a build-up of
soilage as this can prevent the Stayclean from
working.
l
Follow the recommendations below to keep oven
soilage to a minimum.
l
Cook at the recommended temperatures. Higher
temperatures during roasting will increase
soilage. Try cooking at lower temperatures for an
increased length of time, you will save energy
and often the joint is more tender.
l
Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when roasting
meat, potatoes only require brushing with fat
before cooking. Extra fat in the oven during
roasting will increase splashing and soilage.
l
It is NOT necessary to add water to a meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices from
the joint create excessive splattering during
cooking - even at normal temperatures, as well
as causing condensation.
l
Covering joints during cooking will also prevent
splashing onto the interior surfaces. Removing
the covering for the last 20-30 minutes will allow
extra browning if required. Some large joints and
turkeys especially benefit by this method of
cooking, allowing the joint to cook through before
the outside is overbrowned.
CLEANING THE DOOR GLASS
CLEANING  BETWEEN THE OUTER AND
INNER DOOR PANELS 
The outer door panel is removable for cleaning.
TO REMOVE THE OUTER PANEL
1. Open the oven door slightly to gain access to the
two cross head screws on the top of the oven
door.
2. Loosen the two screws using a Pozidrive
screwdriver.
To prevent damaging or weakening the
door glass panels avoid the use of the
following:
l
l
Household detergents and bleaches
l
l
Impregnated pads unsuitable for
non-stick saucepans
l
l
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
l
l
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
l
l
Rust removers
l
l
Bath/Sink stain removers
