If you own an electric griddle and use it on a daily basis, you should also know how to clean a messy griddle. If you don’t know already, here are some of the best ways of keeping your Electric griddle properly clean and functioning properly.
A clean appliance doesn’t only look great, but also keeps functioning properly. Here is how you can properly clean your Electric griddle.
Get Rid of Grease
You can simply use a spatula on the griddle to clean it and get rid of the grease accumulated on the griddle. While this might not be the best method, but it is perfect to get rid of large quantities of grease accumulated on top to then use traditional methods for the rest of the grease.
To do this, you can turn your griddle on and wait for the grease to heat up. Once the griddle and its grease is properly heated, you can use a flat spatula to scrape off the grease from its surface. However, you should keep yourself away from the griddle by using a spatula for the grease.
Cleaning The Griddle
To clean the griddle, you can use a smooth cloth, and if you’re using a sponge, try not to use the side made for scrubbing. You can damage the non-stick coating by using harsh materials for cleaning.
You can use warm water to clean the cloth afterwards. If the griddle is too dirty, this process might take a long time.
Cleaning The Drip Tray
The Drip tray you use with your electric griddle must be dishwasher friendly. If it’s not, you should take precaution to clean the drip tray. You should therefore clean your big electric griddle properly if you want to maintain the griddle and keep it working properly.
