Cleaning and De-greasing a Cooker Hood

Remember the last time you took a peak underneath your cooker hood and inspected the exhaust fan filters? If you’re not done so since you bought it, it’s not going to be a pretty sight. This is because; the main function of a cooker hood is to collect grease. After some time, the filter may become blocked with too much grease that its function won’t be so effective. To prevent this from happening, it is advisable to keep it clean regularly.

The easiest method of cleaning the filter is with a mixture of boiling water, baking soda, and de-greasing dish soap. Simply remove the filter/s from the hood and submerge it in the mixture. Make sure to soak it for at least 10 minutes. After soaking, you can remove the filter and give it a good scrub with a non-abrasive scrub. Lastly, rinse and dry with a clean cloth.

Another method of cleaning the filters is to place it in a dishwasher. However, this is only recommended if there is little to no grease on the filters. This is so that your dishwasher does not end up with grease everywhere.

On top of the filter, it is important to clean the surface of the cooking hood as well. Most of the cooker hoods from Fujioh are made from stainless steel or glass. To ideally clean it, do make use of a soft sponge or cloth. This is because; a wire sponge or brush as it may cause it to leave scratches or other marks on the hood.

Cleaning a Cooker Hob

The cooker hob or more commonly known as the stove top burner is essential to cook or heat up a meal at home. Nonetheless, it is still one of the worst aspects of cooking at home as it can easily get dirty. Ideally, the cooker hob should be cleaned immediately each time you utilise it as the dirt is still fresh and easily removed. Keeping the cooker hob clean at all times is beneficial as tiny bits of dust, food, and grime can get into it which can make it difficult to light. Thankfully, with the right tools, it can be rather easy to clean so that it works more efficiently.

There are many variations of the cooker hob. It can be made out of ceramic, glass and other materials. The most common types of cooker hobs is the metal gas stove where the parts can be easily removed in order for more extensive cleaning. Simply remove the drip plates, knobs and other removable accessories manually. Run these items under hot, soapy water. Make sure to rinse and dry them well before placing it back. Typically, these stoves do not have a sealed cooktop. Thus, food, grease and other debris will easily fall down under the burners. Make sure to lift the cooktop and clean beneath it by utilising a sponge and warm soapy water.

On the other hand, the ceramic or glass cooker hob should be handled with care during cleaning as these materials get scratched rather easily. To properly clean ceramic or glass cooker hobs, remove the loose pieces of food and then work on the stubborn stains. After that, apply a small amount of cleaning fluid that is specially designed to clean ceramic or glass. Leave the cleaning fluid on the stubborn stains for a few minutes before wiping them off. Make sure to utilise a microfibre cloth to clean the surface of the hob. If there comes the need of putting in elbow grease, make use of a scrunched up newspaper instead. To prevent any scratches on the surface, test out a small surface first.

Similar to the ceramic or glass cooker hob is the induction hob. Thanks to the innovative design, cleaning it is a piece of cake as food will less likely burn compared to the metal gas stove. Therefore, there is no need for any strong cleaning materials. All you need is a kitchen spray and water. Before cleaning the induction hob, ensure that it has already cooled down. After that, simply utilise a soft cloth to wipe away the dirt.
