    question on cleaning a piece of equipment ive never used before

    So new job I'm at now has one of these dreaded things:



    Anyone have any good ideas to clean the grooved section? I'm struggling to get it up to my standards for cleanliness.

    get it hot, dump some white distilled vinegar on it and scrub it with a grill wire brush
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Can you take it apart? We soak our grill parts in degreaser solution overnight once every week. If it is too dirty you may try that too

    Can't take it apart, it's not a grill its literally a grooved flat top section attached to the flat top.

    Will try the white vinegar method and report back.

    White vinegar sounds like the way to go then

    The kitchen is all 100% new, so It's not that dirty, I just want it to be shiny every time I'm done cleaning it haha.

    Be careful with vinegar. Use it but don't spill it inside near electrical. All these modern day kitchen gadgets just don't compare to our vintage tanks of gear. Bar keepers friend works good on stainless but don't let it linger or the oxalic acid will stain it.

    Pickle juice is a cheap alternative to white vin.

    That grooved section looks like a pain to clean. I've used this product before with good results.
