any all-purpose cleaner.
Remove from unit and clean with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth. Scrub gently; do
not soak. Use of abrasive cleaners or ammonia-based products could possibly remove
the graphics. The white knobs are tougher to clean – 409 Professional Strength works
well. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
Only use hot, soapy water and a soft cloth. Use of abrasive cleaners or ammoniabased
products on the control panel could possibly remove the graphics.
Stainless Steel Surfaces
For everyday use, start with hot, soapy water and a soft cloth. Wipe dry. Finish with
a damp micro-fiber cloth. Make sure to rub in the direction of the grain/brushed finish.
If anything acidic lands on it (lemon, tomato sauce, etc.) clean up immediately
because it will stain.
For optimum appearance use a stainless steel cleaner to remove smudges and fingerprints
and followupwith a polish such as Thor (www.thorproducts.com) tomake unit shine. Cleaner
and polish should not be used daily. Once every couple of weeks should be adequate.
All ovens should be cleaned frequently with hot, soapy water.
Non self-cleaning ovens
• Oven door: For non self-cleaning ovens, use Easy-Off Fume Free Max Oven Cleaner. Apply oven cleaner with a damp sponge.
• Oven racks and rack supports: Clean with hot, soapy water or Soft Scrub cleanser. Remove before self-cleaning.
• Oven interior surfaces: Use Easy-Off Fume Free Max Oven Cleaner. Follow manufacturer’s directions. For self-cleaning ovens,
remove oven racks and rack supports and follow self-clean instructions in the Use and Care Manual.
• Never line the oven cavity with aluminum foil. It will melt on and permanently damage the surface.
• Oven interior surfaces: Remove oven racks and rack supports (VGSC Ranges only) and follow self-cleaning instructions in the Use and
• The infrared broiler should never be cleaned. Any cleaner can damage the special mesh screen and/or the igniter.
This cleans most efficiently while still hot.
Grill grate: May be cleaned immediately after cooking is complete and before turning off the
flame. Use a soft bristle brush to scrub the grill grate. Dip the brush frequently into a bowl of
water. Steam is created as the water contacts the hot grate. The steam assists the cleaning
process by softening the food particles. For thorough cleaning of the grill grate, use grill cleaner
according to manufacturer’s directions and then soak 15 to 20 minutes in a hot water and
mild detergent solution. After soaking, scrub with a blue Scotch-Brite pad. Do not use a steel
wool pad or abrasive cleaners, for risk of damaging the porcelain finish. Dry thoroughly.
Flavor-generator plates: Scrape off all burned on debris. Soak 15-20 minutes in a hot water
and mild detergent solution. After soaking, scrub with a blue Scotch-Brite pad. Flavor-generator
plates are also dishwasher safe.
Constructed of machined steel with blanchard finish.
First time use: Scrub griddle with mixture of one quart warm water and 1⁄4 cup white vinegar, using
blue Scotch-Brite pad. Dry thoroughly. Wash griddle with warm, soapy water. Rinse off and dry thoroughly.
Season griddle by thinly coating the surface with approximately 1⁄2 to 1 teaspoon unsalted
vegetable oil. Apply to entire griddle using a paper towel or clean cloth. Let oil sit on griddle for
about one hour and then wipe down with a clean cloth to soak up any residual oil. The griddle is now
ready to be used.
• It is not necessary to wash your griddle after every use. When light cooking is performed, simply
wipe down the surface with a clean cloth or paper towel. The oils in the food in which was
cooked on the surface will naturally season the griddle.
• After heavy cooking is done and the griddle is still warm, you can pour some room temperature
club soda directly on the griddle. Using a metal spatula, pull oils and excess food towards the
grease trough. Wipe entire surface with a paper towel. Follow up with the seasoning process.
• Keeping your griddle well seasoned will prevent your griddle from surface rust. If your griddle is
not used for a period of time, it must be re-seasoned. Every time your griddle is washed, it must
• It is normal for the griddle to darken over time, possibly unevenly.
• Non-stick cooking sprays are not recommended, considering their high water content they have a tendency to burn on.
• Corn oil is not recommended due to their high sugar level. It will caramelize and burn on the surface making it very difficult to
• After using the griddle, always remove the grease trough located in the front. Simply pull the trough towards you and lift out. The
trough or tray trap needs to be cleaned after each use. Wash the trough in hot soapy water. If grease is permitted to accumulate, a fire
hazzard could occur.
IMPORTANT: Never flood a hot griddle with cold water. This promotes griddle warping and can cause the griddle to crack if continued
over a period of time.
