Please note that all cleaning and maintenance should take place once the appliance has completely cooled and after the fuel supply has been safely turned off at the LP cylinder. Always allow appliance to cool to 115 ̊ F before getting started. Please note that cleaning should be done in an area where detergents won't harm the patio or lawn.
Suggested Cleaning Materials
- Mild dishwashing liquid detergent (non-citrus based)
- Wire brush
- Nylon cleaning pad
- Hot water
- Paper clip
- Soft brass bristled brush
- Cast Iron Cleaner
1. Use the wire brush to loose corrosion from burner exterior.
2. Clean clogged gas port holes with an opened paper clip.
3. Replace corroded or damaged burners that would emit excess gas.
COOKING SURFACES, POTS AND PANS:
1. Clean the cooking surface with soapy water and a nylon cleaning pad.
2. If cooking pots have black soot cooked on the outside, it can be scrubbed off with steel wool. DO NOT spray oven cleaner on aluminum cooking pots to remove grease or soot as it will cause the finish to become dull.
3. If food remains stuck to the basket, place in hot water and allow to soak.
4. After cooling, scrub with nylon pad.
5. If hard water causes darkening on the interior of the cooking pots, fill to the level of the darkened area with a mixture of water, cream of tartar and vinegar (1 QT of water, 2 TBPS of cream of tartar, 1/2 CUP of vinegar), and boil for 10 minutes.
6. After appliance has cooled, wipe areas where paint and finish have burned off to minimize rusting.
8. Lastly, confirm that all components are completely dry after cleaning and before storing.
