28 Sep 2022

Do you spend most of your time in the kitchen, cooking up scrumptious food for your family and friends? Do you sometimes wish you had better appliances to make your work easier? Or want to take really good care of your kitchen appliances to keep them running smoothly for longer? We bring to you some super cool tips for cleaning and maintaining various kitchen appliances. These are tried and tested tips that will surely prove effective!

Tips and Tricks for well-maintained kitchen appliances
  1. Refrigerator
    Make sure that the doors of your refrigerator shut tight. Clean the seals thoroughly at least twice a year and clean and make sure that there are no food remains left on there. If the doors are left half open, the cool air is likely to escape out, causing the refrigerator to work harder than usual to keep your food from going stale.
  2. Dishwasher
    If you own a dishwasher that has a filter, you need to periodically remove the filter and clean it thoroughly. Check for leftover food or grime in the filter to make it optimal for cleaning and running for a long time.
  3. Microwave
    One basic tip to remember is to never put a metal container in the microwave that is not already marked as being “microwave-safe”. The microwaves emitted by the oven are likely to bounce off the unsafe metal and damage the microwave by causing uneven overheating.
  4. Washing machine
    Just like the washing machine does its job of cleaning your clothes, the machine itself too needs to be properly cleaned. Once a month, running an empty load of warm water wash in your washing machine with around half a cup of detergent and 2 cups of white vinegar will help clean its interiors and dispensers. This will prolong the life of your washing machine and keep it running smoothly.
  5. Coffee machine
    If you love coffee and your coffee machine decides to break down one fine morning, it is almost as if your whole day would be ruined! You can avoid this by cleaning your coffee machine at least once per week. The coffee oil and residue that is left behind after brewing coffee may clog the machine and spoil its components. Wash the removable parts of your coffee machine thoroughly and periodically to keep it running for longer.

Benefits of proper maintenance of kitchen appliances
  1. Extended lifespan
    As helpful as kitchen appliances are, they sure are not easy on your pocket. When you spend a good amount of money on your appliances, you would also want to get the most out of them by keep them in good condition and serving their purpose for a long time. Regular maintenance of your appliances helps you do just that.
  2. Improve energy efficiency
    When the appliances are not in an optimal condition, they tend to use up more electricity, thus costing you a bomb on that part. Regularly maintaining your appliances will help you identify the problems and keep them at bay while minimizing energy consumption.
  3. Property safety
    You sure do not want to see your house or property burning down because of an appliance getting damaged. When you keep your devices and appliances at their best, you reduce the chances of incidents like short circuits, and thus protect your property from severe damages.

    When you overlook the small issues with your appliances or lag behind in their periodical servicing, the issues pile up and turn into a big damage.
