The grill element is usually positioned on the ceiling of the cooker. Just like most parts of the appliance – it should be cleaned frequently. Otherwise, it may result in unwanted smoke while cooking. This leads to poor food quality and a frustrating culinary experience.
If you’re dealing with unnecessary, nasty smoke in the oven and are wondering what’s causing it, then you may want to check the condition of the heating element in your appliance. This article will help you learn how to clean the grill element of your oven without damaging it, along with some useful tips on how to properly maintain it in the future.
Let’s dig in.
With that in mind, there are two methods you can opt for when cleaning the grill of your oven:
This method will definitely show results, as most of the accumulated fat will loosen up and become easier to clean. However, the grill part will be clean on the front side only, since the back is difficult to access. If you still feel like your oven grill element is not clean enough, you can repeat the procedure.
There is also the option to disassemble the part, soak it in detergent and re-install it. This, however, is not so simple to do and involves removing wires. If the oven grill element is not installed correctly after the cleaning, this could lead to the appliance’s malfunction, warranty issues and further complications.
In order to clean a greasy oven, you can also use a homemade, eco-friendly detergent by mixing water, baking soda and white vinegar.
Inevitably, when you cook – your oven is bound to get dirty. There are a couple of things you can consider in order to keep your cooker sparkling clean.
Keep in mind that today’s modern ovens cook perfectly fine at approximately 180 C (356 F). If you like to go a little above – 200 C+ (392 F+), you can expect to get splashes of oil on every part of your oven. Especially the grill element. This results in accumulated grease.
When you cook afterwards, that grease burns and causes unpleasant smoke. With that in mind, do not fill pots and trays with too much liquid to prevent boiling over.
Wondering how often should you clean your oven? Well, a quick clean up after a few cooking sessions can go a long way. This is the best way to maintain the cooker’s freshness. Once a week would definitely help you keep your oven looking like a new one.
In the long run, when you are about to perform a full oven cleaning, it will be a lot easier to do if you have regularly taken care of it.
If you don’t clean the cooker regularly, the amount of grime and grease will increase with every cooking session. Later on, this may result in unexpected smoke, unpleasant cooking experience, malfunctioning or even fire hazards. If any of these happen, you may need to call a specialist in the electric or gas oven repairs.
With that said, you should definitely keep your oven clean and enjoy the benefits.
