Electric Cooker Maintenance Guide
To keep your rice cooker functional for long-lasting service, it’s important to clean and maintain the said appliance. Let’s see how you can properly clean your cooker and keep it in good condition.
First, make sure the cooker has been unplugged for at least 20 minutes so it can cool down completely. Take the inner pot out of the cooker since you need to clean that separately. If the pot is dishwasher-friendly, put it in the washer. Don’t use any harsh cleaning products for cleaning any part of the cooker. Take a damp cloth to wipe over the surface of the cooker, including the lid. If there are any food stains, take a sponge dipped in soapy water and gently scrub over the dirty areas. If the pot cannot be put in the dishwasher, you can take the same solution with some added dishwashing liquid and scrub the inside very gently. Don’t use a steel sponge since it can damage the surface.
After you’re done with all the scrubbing, use clean water to clean the pot and the cooker. Make sure no water reaches the electric circuit since it can immediately cause it to malfunction. Take a dry cloth to absorb all the excess water. Let the cooker and the pot dry off completely before putting them back together. While cleaning the cooker, check the cord for any damage.
