Kitchen Hob Guide
A well-maintained hob will last you years! And when it comes to maintaining it, cleaning your hob is one of the ways to ensure its longevity. So how often should you clean it? You are recommended to wipe your hob after every use because it removes any stains before it begins to set. A thorough cleaning should be done at least once a week, especially if you make use of your kitchen daily. If you have a spillage, remember to soak it up with a material first to avoid an even larger mess.
You have to use the right materials while cleaning your hob. Simply dipping the cloth in warm water and wiping the surface will not remove the stubborn stains and smudges. You should use sponges to work on them and use a scrubber for the more persistent ones. Once you are done with both and are satisfied with your work, wipe the surface down to remove any remaining stains and specks of dirt.
If you have an induction hob with a touch control operation system, then the cleaning process is fairly easy for you. But a gas hob requires some work. You need to remove any adjustable hob plates, griddle or attachments and clean them separately.
Every kitchen hob comes with a manual and sometimes requires special maintenance methods. Let the manual guide you through the process. You should never leave an appliance like this unattended while using it. You should also avoid placing any heavy objects or utensils on it. Never use a kitchen hob with the intention of keeping your rooms warm! Pay special attention to any heat indicators and keep children away from the kitchen while cooking.
To sum it up, every kitchen undoubtedly requires a hob. You should select one which suits you and your interior design the best!
