Aside from prolonging the life span of your popcorn machine, learning how to clean this equipment properly can help ensure that the popcorns come out perfect every time. Cleaning this gadget in the right way can also help the machine cook faster since heat is insulated properly and technical malfunctions are less likely to happen. Here are some tips on how to clean this type of machine properly.
1. Wait for the machine to cool down - Don't clean the machine immediately after use since the sudden change in temperature can damage its circuitry. It is also safer for users to clean the machine once it has cooled down to minimize the risk of getting burnt in any way. Users should also make sure that the device is properly unplugged before cleaning it.
2. A soft cloth should be used to remove oil so that the cooking surface of the machine will not get damaged or scratched. Users should start wiping the machine starting with its interior to ensure that the dirt and oil found on the exterior machine will not be transferred to its inner plating.
3. Use different cleaning solutions for the interior and exterior parts of the machine. For the external parts such as the crossbar and the kettle lids, it is best to use a cleaner that can polish or bring back the luster of aluminum surfaces to help the machine look brand new for a long time. For the insides of the machine, it is best to use cleaners that can cut grease. However since these chemicals are toxic. users should make sure that they are thoroughly rinsed off the machine.
4. The old pan should not be neglected. Take it out as soon as it has cooled down and clean as per package instructions. Some pans can be cleaned using ordinary soap and water while others should be cleaned with the use of a dishwasher.
Even though these tips can help popcorn machine users clean their equipment properly, nothing beats choosing the right type of machine to buy in the first place. This is because some brands are easier to clean than the other because of their plating or the technology that they use to cook the popcorn. This is why it is better to focus on finding the right brand of machine to buy instead of focusing on the tips that can help users clean their machine properly.
