Hotels, cafes, and restaurant kitchens are filled with flame-grilling delights, delicious entrees, and mouth-watering desserts. Their ovens are a workhorse aiming to please their diners with enjoyable food, but with their vigorous use, food particles, grease, and other debris accumulate, causing you to think about commercial oven cleaning, which if not done properly, can affect flavours and, worse, risk smoke and fire. What’s more, failure to clean commercial ovens adequately can lead to costly and ineffective temperatures.
Scheduled cleaning and maintenance using commercial and industrial cleaning products is the best way to prevent issues. Here are some of our top tips on safeguarding your commercial oven’s overall and ongoing performance.
Regular Oven Cleanliness
Commercial oven cleaning is never going to be pleasurable, in fact, it is probably one of the toughest duties, but it has to be done. A scheduled, regular oven cleaning routine, will help prevent the problems that can arise from a dirty oven. Draw up a daily oven cleaning schedule that you and your team can easily commit to. Make sure that all staff understand why it is important to maintain the routine.
Recommended cleaning times: daily cleaning in the evenings before doors are closed, allows the oven to dry overnight, and requires just a quick, wipe-over first thing in the morning.
There’s no dodging the build-up of crumbs in commercial kitchens, especially in the oven. When left unattended, these crumbs can cause major problems with how your oven functions and can potentially cause smoke and fires. Make sure that you clear away crumbs and debris using our CHEF Heavy Duty Oven & Grill Cleaner. This product is especially great for baked-on food deposits and grill plate cleaning.
Much like crumbs and other debris, food accumulation on oven racks isn’t a surprise. Make sure that you separately clean oven racks by removing them from the oven and placing them to soak in water with our COBRA Stainless Oven Cleaner. These cleaning products for ovens are ideal for removing excessive grease, fat, and other food debris.
Interior Wall Wash-Up
Your oven racks aren’t the only thing that requires cleaning. The interior walls need attention too. Once racks are cleaned, apply CHEF Heavy Duty Oven & Grill Cleaner directly to the surface and leave for 5-10 minutes then scrub with a scouring pad or brush to clean.
