A Guide to Keeping Your Aga Cooker Clean
Aga cookers are more than just kitchen appliances; they're timeless companions that have the potential to serve generations. To ensure your Aga cooker continues to shine for years to come, proper care and maintenance are essential.
Our Tips for a Clean Cooker
A little bit of care goes a long way, follow our top tips for keeping your Aga cooker sparkling.
- Regular Wiping Down: Just like any other kitchen appliance, your Aga cooker requires regular cleaning. Gently wipe down the external surfaces with a warm, soapy cloth to remove any splatters, grease, or dust, followed by wiping with a clean, dry cloth. This not only keeps it looking clean but also prevents the accumulation of grime that can become stubborn over time. We recommend you never use a cold wet cloth or oven cleaners.
- Tackling Hotplate Spills: The hotplates are where the culinary magic happens, and they're likely to encounter spills and splatters. Made of cast-iron the hotplates are durable and easy to care for. It's always best to remove any spills as soon as they happen. Wait until the hotplates cool down slightly, and then use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe away any residue.
- Interior Cleaning: Cleaning the interior of your Aga cooker is crucial for maintaining both hygiene and performance. The brilliant thing with an Aga cooker is they generally keep themselves clean by carbonising spills from cooking. Simply wipe away the carbon dust lightly with a soft cloth or wire brush. Regularly wipe down the oven's interior walls with a damp cloth to prevent the buildup of grease and food residue.
- Chrome Dome Care: Made of Stainless Steel, the chrome dome is a distinctive feature of Aga cookers and deserves special attention. Keep them looking radiant by using a damp soapy cloth, followed by a wet cloth and then a dry cloth. Buff the dome to a beautiful shine, showcasing its classic charm.
- Lid Lining and Door Seals: Don't forget to check and clean the lid lining and door seals. These areas can accumulate grease and food particles over time. Wipe them down with a damp cloth, ensuring they remain clean and functional. Avoid using excessive water and remember to check that the linings are dry before you close the cover.
- Frequency Matters: How often you clean your Aga cooker depends on how frequently it's used. A weekly wipe-down of exterior surfaces, hotplates, and interior walls is a good practice. However, more thorough cleanings might be necessary every few weeks or as needed.
- Choosing the Right Products: Opt for gentle, non-abrasive cleaning products that won't harm the surfaces of your Aga cooker. Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive tools, as they could damage the enamel and cast-iron.
Caring for your Aga cooker is more than just maintenance; it's an investment in preserving a culinary icon. With a regular cleaning routine and a gentle touch, you can keep your Aga cooker looking radiant and functioning flawlessly for years to come.
