Toaster ovens are useful for making a wide assortment of meals that require the use of heat to prepare the ingredients. Toaster ovens are an alternative to the microwave and can sometimes cook food more thoroughly all the way through. Toaster ovens are sometimes difficult to keep clean since the combination of high heat with grease and other cooking agents results in brown stains forming on the outside of the oven. Cleaning this browning off requires some elbow-grease.
Things You'll Need
- Dish detergent
- White vinegar
- Terry cloth
- Baking soda
Unplug the toaster oven.
Squirt several drops of dish washing detergent on the outside of the toaster oven over the stains. Allow the soap to sit for a minute or two, then rub the soap into the stains with a damp sponge.
Rinse the soap away with the other side of the sponge.
Apply white vinegar to a terry cloth so the cloth is sufficiently damp. Scrub the vinegar into the brown stains. Vinegar is another natural degreaser and a strong cleaning agent that can eliminate the heat stains.
Sprinkle some baking soda over any remaining stains and wipe them away with a wet sponge.
Tips & Warnings
- Clean your toaster oven regularly to prevent stains from building up, which makes them harder to remove.
- Avoid submerging the toaster oven while cleaning it since it is an electrical device and this can cause shortage.
