4 Steps to Clean Stainless Steel Cooking Equipment, Campbellsville, Kentucky

If you rely on stainless steel surfaces and cooking equipment in your commercial kitchen, you know that keeping them clean can be difficult. The partially reflective surface makes it easy to see spots and smudges. In addition to disinfecting food prep surfaces according to your restaurant equipment standards, here's how you can keep everything shining.

How to Clean Your Cooking Equipment

1. Soap & Water

A soft cloth such as a microfiber cloth is the best tool for wiping up fresh spills and crumbs. Wet the rag with warm water and add a little dish detergent, then go over the area again with just water and a clean cloth.

2. Dry the Surface

3. Glass Cleaner

For extra shine and disinfecting purposes, choose a glass cleaner with the same base as the other cleaning products used in your kitchen. Ammonia-based cleaners work well on most surfaces. Don't mix cleaners with different bases, as these chemicals can create hazardous gases when combined.

4. Baking Soda Paste

If there are any stubborn spots of grime, mix a thick paste of water and baking soda and apply it to the affected surface. You can spray it with a little vinegar, or let it sit for a while, ideally overnight. In the morning, wipe away the baking soda. The grime should come with it.
