Keeping your grill plate clean will help extend its life and improve the taste of your food. You should clean it regularly, especially if it is used frequently. Not only will it ensure a better taste, but it will also help conduct the heat more evenly and extend the life of your equipment. In addition to this, regular cleaning helps reduce food contamination and transfer of flavors.
The first step is to clean the surface using a rubber tool with heat resistant properties. You should also use griddle cleaning solutions according to the manufacturers instructions. It is always better to test the cleaner on a small area before applying it to the entire surface. In addition, make sure to use the product in small circular movements. This helps loosen carbonized substances and other cooked food particles that have accumulated on the surface. Finally, you should wipe the grill with a clean cloth. When cleaning the exterior surface, use the cleaner on low pressure settings to avoid damage to the surface.
After using the cleaner, you should rinse the grid thoroughly with water. If this solution does not remove the residue, you can use a sponge or wooden spatula to scrape away the residue. You can also use a non-scratch pad or sponge. If you choose to use the sponge, you can apply pressure to the surface to move the water and residue to the drip tray.
