Electrical Appliances – Guide to keep the small appliances clean

Every device is an investment because it makes life easier. But they need proper care and maintenance. Small kitchen appliances are the glue that holds the kitchen together. Without the convenience of a microwave, toaster or coffee maker – our daily lives would surely grind to a halt. These gadgets provide us with convenience and comfort and we can save time in performing daily kitchen tasks.

Our small kitchen appliances work hard for us, and cleaning and caring for them means our food tastes better and lasts longer and this results in them functioning normally.

Important instructions to keep in mind on how to clean electric kitchen appliances -: 

  1. Always unplug the device before removing any parts for cleaning

  2. Carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions while doing so

  3. Any parts of the appliance that you are disassembling for cleaning come in contact with electrical components, please ensure that sure the non-electrical part is completely dry


Coffee Maker

  • Put a paper filter in place

  • Fill the water chamber with equal parts white vinegar and water

  • Start the machine and turn it off when it’s halfway through the brew cycle

  • Let the solution sit for half an hour

  • Finish the brew cycle

  • Throw out the vinegar solution and replace the paper filter

  • Run the brew cycle with a full pot of water to get rid of any vinegar

  • Repeat the cycle with one more full pot of water


Microwave/Toaster Oven

  • Take a microwavable bowl and fill it half way with water

  • Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice from both halves into the bowl of water and throw the lemons into the bowl

  • Process until the water is at a rolling boil; then turn off the microwave

  • Keep the door closed for at least 15 minutes

  • The condensation/steam will loosen food particles and make them easy to wipe away

  • Go in again with a damp cloth and clean the cooking stains on the floor and wall



  • Pour 1 cup of hot water and few drops of dishwashing liquid into the jar, place the jar on the base and pulse for 5 seconds

  • Keep your food processor smelling fresh by blending some lemon rinds with water for a few seconds

  • For a more thorough but less frequent cleaning, fill the jar entirely with hot water and 1 to 2 teaspoons of liquid chlorine bleach, let stand for 5 minutes, and then dump the mixture. Rinse thoroughly with clean water
