A few tips before using
Since the induction hob is a complex electronic device made from lightweight scratching materials, you have to know something about caring for it even before you start it use.
The most important thing is to remember that the kitchen panel should not be adjacent to household appliances having a metal casing.This, for example, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, etc. If this can not be avoided, it will be necessary to install a sealed interlayer in places with the greatest temperature of the metal shell of electrical appliances located nearby.
Now you need to make sure that there is a good air exchange near the hob. The kitchen panel should be removed from the nearest walls and floor for at least a couple of dozen centimeters. Materials next to it are required to withstand a temperature of at least 100 degrees Celsius.
How to take care not to do much harm
In most cases, when it comes to cleaning and washing the hob, we mean induction-type household appliances with a top glass-ceramic panel. This material is more technologically advanced than metal and plastic, but it also requires special care.
The rules that must be fulfilled:
- Select individual wipes or sponges solely for cleaning and washing the hob. In this way you will achieve maximum cleanliness of the kitchen panel.
- Remove any contaminants only with agents that are suitable for the care of glass-ceramic surfaces. If you do not already know about them, open and read the manual or find the relevant information in another convenient way.
- In the absence of special means for cleaning the induction hob, never use abrasive mixtures, powders or dishwashing solutions. Some of them cause irreparable harm to the glass-ceramic, and then this can not be remedied. So find a non-abrasive cream, gel or something like that.
- Always after cleaning and washing, wipe the hob with a soft soft cloth or napkin - this will eliminate the appearance of ugly stains and rust on the metal parts of the device.
- Care for ceramic glass kitchen surface will be most effective, if all stains that appear after cooking, you wipe immediately.
- Take it very carefully to cleaning and washing, if you are dealing with sugar. It is better to brush off immediately with a napkin, applying a minimum of effort to the movement of the hand. Then use the available means to care for the hobs. If there are stains from other products, you can first rinse everything off with clean warm water, using a soft scraper. Then do the cleaning in the usual sequence.
- Remember that washing the induction cooker will be more successful if you pour a chemical on the sponge, and not on the panel itself.
- Many cleaning solutions for wiping windows are also suitable for the care of cooking surfaces. But do not use sprays to clean the ovens - their composition is not suitable for such purposes.
Some useful tips from experienced housewives
Do not ignore the manufacturer's recommendation to use only special utensils: the induction panel is a complex mechanism that requires accuracy in handling and care.
Remember the most terrible enemies of cooking surfaces: sugar and similar products, metal scourers and scrapers, as well as abrasive detergents.
The induction panel may break up or react with chips during a point mechanical attack. For example, the sudden fall of a heavy knife, an ax for chopping meat or a hammer for chops sometimes leads to trouble.
Remember that the hotplate at work though slightly, but still heats up, and constant cold sprays can damage the hob.
Drinking soda replaces some special means for cleaning and washing induction surfaces, but use it very carefully.First, put a little on a damp warm cloth, wipe the place of contamination, rinse with water, and then wipe with a damp and then a dry towel.
Remember that ordinary sunflower oil has properties similar to specialized detergents. But it is better to check this fact when there is no special means at hand.
