Hints and tips on how to clean a Rangemaster oven and hob

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Friday, 28th March 2014

None of us like cleaning our cookers, but there are ways to make the job easier! Here are some tips on how to clean your Rangemaster oven and hob.


  • When something spills in the oven or boils over on the hob try and wipe it up as soon as possible to prevent it from burning on, but be careful if the cooker is hot.

  • To prevent food from burning on to the base of the oven use some Bake-O-Glide, this is a thick re-useable sheet of non-stick liner (not suitable when the base element is used). This is sold in ready cut kits to fit your Rangemaster oven size, from

  • If your fan oven is not very dirty, it may help to use steam to soften the food residues, not a hand held steamer (these could get moisture into the electrical parts of your cooker) just pour 150ml of cold water onto the base of the fan oven with a drip of washing up liquid or a little lemon juice, turn the oven to 100ºC fan function for 18 minutes. After this time the whole oven will be coated with steam and when cooled slightly, can be wiped out.

  • If you need to use a caustic oven cleaner, always test some on an inconspicuous area of the oven or hob first. Damage can happen if caustic cleaners come into contact with heating elements, the fascia, catalytic oven liners or door seals, so it is important to read and follow the instructions carefully. Rangemaster have a range of cleaning products carefully tested on the cookers.

  • Catalytic liners (the grey speckled sides to your ovens) will clean themselves at 200ºC and above whilst in use but you can remove them and wash with hot soapy water, make sure they are dry before replacing them.

  • The oven shelves can be cleaned in the dishwasher, if this does not clean them completely any remaining dirt is easily removed with a scourer.

  • Enamel burner caps can be cleaned with caustic oven cleaner or cream cleaner.

  • Stainless steel and enamel hobs are best cleaned with hot soapy water and a soft cloth. Abrasive cleaning products and cloths may mark the hob so if necessary a caustic cleaner may be carefully used.

  • Pan supports can be cleaned in the dishwasher or in the sink with hot soapy water and a gentle scourer.

  • Ceramic and induction hobs should be cleaned with Rangemaster Ceramic hob cleaner, or a proprietary brand of cleaner especially formulated for cleaning toughened glass. Rinse and polish to a shine with a soft dry cloth.  This cleaner is also good for cleaning the glass in the oven doors.

  • Only use hot soapy water and a soft cloth on the fascia and doors to prevent damage.


Don’t forget, the sooner you can clean up the spill, the cleaner your Rangemaster will stay!
