One can’t deny the palpable excitement in the air when it comes to installing brand new appliances in our homes, especially in the case of Combi Ovens. Add to this, the urge to get instantly started with baking treats and tasty dishes for the family. But hold on! With this delightful use comes the responsibility of treating your appliance with the utmost care and love. So read ahead as we’ve devised the perfect guide for you to follow when it comes to taking care of your combi oven so that it lasts you for years long!

  • The first rule is to always follow the manufacturer instructions when it comes to handling and cleaning the oven. Use only those cleaning agents recommended by the company to not only maintain the appliance in the right way but also to avoid the warranty from getting nullified.
  • Develop a regular habit to give a thorough cleaning to the combi oven. If recommended, use alcohol wipes or dishwasher tablets to remove smudges. Clean the pane door, suction plate, wire racks, and hoses as advised by the manufacturer. Ensure to clean and lubricate the door seal (gasket) too, if your combi oven has one.
  • Avoid using any harsh abrasive materials like wire brushes, steel wool, and metal scrapers to clean your combi oven. Instead, you can wipe the oven interiors with a slightly wet, soft cloth every day. You should also frequently run the self-cleaning cycle of the oven to keep the interiors sleek and clean.
  • If your combi oven has a removable meat temperature probe, ensure that you clean it gently with soap water and wipe it with a clean cloth. It is also advisable to sterilize the probe with some alcohol to ensure that it is germ-free and can be inserted into the food.
  • The drain of the oven exists for the condensed steam runoff and is only meant for water to flow through it. Refrain from pouring any other liquids and food debris down the drain to avoid blockage as well as excessive damage to the oven.
  • Ensure that you have a good water filtration system set up so that clean water can be fed into the combi oven. It not only imparts better taste to your food but also slows down the limescale buildup in the drainage, thus increasing the lifespan of your appliance. Also, make sure you test out the quality of the water locally and service the filter every 3 to 6 months.
  • Lastly, depending on the usage, always service the combi oven in a period of every six months or a year.

Now that you have your very own oven maintenance guide, we hope you’re all set to give the care that your appliance deserves! If given due attention, your combi oven will prove to be a cornucopia of food and contribute to your merriment for many days ahead.
