Cleaning of the pizza oven.

Cleaning after use
1. Always ensure the pizza oven ON|OFF switch is set to the OFF position and the power cord is unplugged prior to moving or cleaning.
2. While stone is still warm, scrape off any cheese or pizza ingredients that may have fallen onto the stone.
3. Allow the pizza oven to cool completely.

Cleaning the outer body
1. After each use, wipe the outer body with a soft, damp cloth and dry thoroughly. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser may be used to avoid build-up of food residue and stains.
2. Allow all parts and surfaces to dry thoroughly before plugging the pizza oven in and using.

Cleaning the interior

To clean any food splattering, wipe the interior with a soft cloth dampened with warm water. Dry thoroughly.

Cleaning the viewing window and rear vent area
The viewing window and rear vent area will darken from cooking vapors with ongoing use.
To clean, make a paste from 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1 teaspoon white vinegar and 1 teaspoon of water.
Rub paste onto viewing window or rear vent area and wipe clean with a damp cloth.

  • It is important to do this process regularly and always once the pizza oven has completely cooled.

Care and Cleaning of the pizza stone

Pizza stones are porous and will absorb fats and oils. It is normal for pizza stones to accumulate stains from dripping cheese and fatty toppings. This will not affect the taste of the pizza or the performance of the stone, however, cooking residue may create excess smoke and odor to form.
NOTE:
Do not immerse the pizza stone in water or use cleaning liquids or detergents. Immersing the pizza stone in water could cause it to crack. Cleaning liquids or detergents will absorb into the stone and transfer to the pizza during baking.

To remove stains, cool stone completely and follow instructions below:
1. Small stains can be cleaned easily by scrubbing with a toothbrush and a paste made from equal parts of baking soda and water. Work in small circles until stains are removed. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry completely before reusing.
2. To remove burnt on food, use a scouring pad lightly over stubborn areas.
3. If the accumulation is heavy, use a hard abrasive paper like sand paper to clean the surface.
4. Make sure to wipe the stone clean with a damp cloth and allow plenty of time for the stone to dry out completely before use.
