View Full Version : Cleaning flat top cooker
I was quite excited to get one of these, thinking it'd be so much easier to clean than the gas one I had before, but no... the food seems to really congeal on it & though it looks clean when I wipe it, still looks stained when dry. :puzzled: Does anyone else have one and can you suggest a good product for cleaning it with?
Do you mean a hologen or induction type? I have an induction, and it is a breeze to clean - wipe with Hob Clean, wipe with damp cloth, wipe with a piece of kitchen roll, job done! TBH mine doesn't seem to get that dirty, only if I let something boil over, occasionally splatters of oil, but it all comes off beautifully because there are no nooks and crannies.
I think the Hob Clean stuff is the key.
Ooh Sparkly I have some Hob Brite stuff that you can have if you want. We have a gas cooker in our new house and I wonderded what to do with it now.
Used to use it to clean our ceramic hob and it was much better than Flash or similar.
I can really recomend the hob brite stuff its the best thing I have found to clean my hob. Its in a orange bottle.:thumb:
Ohh thank you Cathy that's so kind of you - I'll PM you! Sounds like it does the trick! :nod:
Hob Brite (although I do tend to just scrub away at it with mr Muscle and a sponge during the week which my DH freaks at when he sees me as you're not supposed to apparently :teehee: and leave my cleaner to do a really thorough job once a week!!!)
Speaking of which - we've lost our "scrapy" thing that comes with it - does anyone know where you can buy replacement ones???
is hob brite for ceramic hobs? where can you get it? i've always used cif cream but it takes ages to clean sometimes.
Thanks for the rec - I got some Hob Brite in Tesco y'day and my hob has never been so shiny! :smile: Didn't get a scraper with it though - does it usually come with one?
Mine didn't have a scraper with it, either, I think you can send away for one, there is a telephone number on the label on the back of the bottle. I've never felt the need for one!
Daisy May - I got mine from Asda.
Hob Brite is indeed for ceramic hobs!!
Sparkly you actually get a scaper with the oven - not the hob brite but I (well our cleaner - who am I trying to kid that I've ever used the damn thing :oops: ) have managed to lose it.....
I didn't get a scraper with my hob :cry: :grin:
I have been through a million scrapers...Lakeland sell them and so do Kitchens but I have not managed to find one that does not fall apart with constant use!
Ps the scrapers are BRILLIANT getting dried on weetabix off highchairs - hence the constant yse in our house!:lol:
Oh I must look out for one!
