For every Singaporean household, the kitchen becomes the focal point every Christmas. It is where you would come together as a whole family and prepare your hearty feasts of the day. So when you are preparing your home for the holidays, do not forget to ensure that the appliances in your kitchen are also working well. Don’t fret, we have listed down below several appliance care tips for Christmas.
If you are on a holiday rush, then it would come naturally that you may be buying a lot of groceries that may take up most space in your refrigerators. This might not be good for your refrigerators. If your fridge is full, its airflow will become limited, decreasing its performance and potentially rendering its coolness useless. You might end up looking for fridge repairs on the day of Christmas, which is a big no-no. So pack and organize the things that you would put inside your fridge.
Buy only what you think can fit inside your fridge. Do not be one who would hoard every food out there.
When cleaning your oven before and after roasting or baking, we suggest that you gently clean it. While they would rarely need cleaning, you still have to ensure tha it is spotlessly clean for your next oven use. Hence, we suggest that you clean your oven with an eco-safe cleanser. These natural cleaners include vinegar and baking soda. To do so, you have to begin wiping off the debris that is left in your oven. Then, spray it with the mixture of those organic substances.
Moreover, you have to be careful when you use aluminum foil to line the bottom portion of your oven. Aluminum foils have a tendency to mess up your cooking and potentially damage your oven.
When cooking, you will always run the risk of having cooking spills. As much as possible, you have to clean them immediately while they are still warm. This way, you will avoid scrubbing to many spills once they become dry. When cleaning the hob, we recommend that you would use a damp cloth, a sponge, or even a paper towel. If it turns out that your cooker hob does need serious repairs, it is time to call for cooker hob repair services immediately.
Since there is a lot of cooking this Christmas, your cooker hood might end up sucking in all the dirt in your kitchens. To clean it, you have to wash the metal-mesh grease filters in sopay water. But if you want it to be spotlessly clean, put it in the top rack of your dishwasher. But if you have charcoal filter, remove it from the hood and throw it away.
After a whole lot of cooking, you will surely face a lot of dishes to wash. Hence, you should properly maintain your dishwasher. If you don’t, you’ll end up with a stockpile of dirty pots and dishes that you would be cleaning by hand. And that is time and energy wasted. So as much as possible, try to avoid filling up your dishwasher. Doing so could potentially block the rotating sprayers and eventually causing damage.
Moreover, it is best not to leave excess food on your plates when placing them into your dishwasher. Leftovers can clog your dishwasher and potentially cause the machine to malfunction.
