HOW TO CLEAN A SANDWICH PRESS?
While it is a treat to enjoy various sandwiches served hot from a sandwich maker, it is equally challenging to clean the sandwich press due to a groovy surface. The process of cleaning is not as simple as cleaning a pan and involves specialized knowledge. Let us try to understand how it goes.
What are the primary issues you face while cleaning a sandwich press?
- There are no removable plates in some sandwich presses. It means you need to clean it in the full piece.
- You must follow the manufacturerâ€™s instructions to avoid unintentional damage.
- You may have to take special care to avoid damage to the coating of non-stick plates.
Why do you think that a sandwich press requires proper cleaning?
- The device can become messy due to heavy use and type of usage.
- If you are fond of cheese and are habitual of putting an extra dose of cheese in your sandwiches, the excess cheese melts and oozes out and leaks out to the plates.
- Due to oil, butter, or ghee usage on the sides, we allow the excess fat to be build up in the plateâ€™s ridges.
- If you fill your sandwich with extra material, the stuff may come out, and the residue remains there.
How do I clean this messy stuff spread all over my sandwich press?
Although it is not simple, it is a bit different. It is not rocket science. You may apply some of the following strategies to clean it.
Using dishwasher soap: If the plates are non-removable, you need to apply a little soap. First of all, add a little soap to a bowl of warm water. The basic idea is to avoid damage to the electrical components. So you should use just enough soap and clean it by rubbing the dirty area. Make sure the power switch is unplugged and not to use abrasive stuff.
Use cloth and chopsticks: It is a traditional way of cleaning remote areas of any device by wrapping fabric on a chopstick or similar item and reach out to difficult areas. Try using a soft cloth. Do not use sharp objects like an old knife, form, pins, etc. We should avoid them at all costs.
Wipe it clean: If there is a little bit of food here and there, it is best to use a cloth or napkin to clean it. It helps to remove the tiny crumbs and food particles trapped here and there. Make sure to wash every time to avoid germs etc.
Dishwasher or Soaking method for Removable Plates: If you can remove the plates, it is best to use a dishwasher to clean it to the full extent. It is the easiest and most effective method. If the sandwich pressâ€™s removable plates are too dirty, try soaking it in a solution of soapy water and clean it thoroughly later on.
Use Baking Soda: Baking soda is a beneficial cleaning agent, especially for non-stick equipment. Mix 2 tbsp of baking soda to half a cup of warm water. It will take hardly 5-10 minutes to clean with this method.
In–house steam method: You can use the deviceâ€™s heat to generate steam and clean effectively. You may also use the residual heat just after you finish cooking. Put a soaked towel inside like a sandwich and keep the device on for some time. Make sure that the towel is adequately soaked. After the steam loosens the particles, switch off and clean it by wiping it as soon as possible.
Do you have any special tips before I begin to clean?
- The sandwich press should not be too hot when you clean it; else you may hurt yourself.
- Make it a habit to clean the sandwich press every time you use it. It avoids the build-up of germs and dirt and is easier to clean.
- Never use steel wool or abrasive pads.
- Increasing soaking time or repeating the steam procedure, or leaving baking soda for some extra time may improve the cleaning.
- If the manufacturerâ€™s instructions contradict our suggestions, it is best to avoid doing it.
- Check if the plates are dishwasher safe. Read the in-box ownerâ€™s manual to find out how much water temperature should be, what type of soap you can use, etc.
