An air fryer toaster oven is probably one of the best kitchen appliances I have ever seen. They are so multitasking and I love them. There are a lot of awesome air fryer toaster ovens available online but Cuisinart TOA-60 is used widely out of them. Many people use the toaster oven but they don’t know that how to clean air fryer toaster oven in the right way.
Cleaning the toaster is not that hard actually but I want to tell you the right way to do this job. Some parts of the toaster ovens are not dishwasher safe but you may put that into the dishwasher.
How To Clean Air Fryer Toaster Oven
There are three most important things to make sure before you start cleaning your oven.
- First of all, plug out the toaster so that there is no current in it.
- Make sure the toaster oven is in cool state.
- Remove all the trays or racks from the oven.
Now, prepare two microfibers. One will be dipped into the mild soapy water and another will be dry. Now, let’s start cleaning the air fryer toaster oven.
I would never suggest using anything abrasive type product for cleaning the oven because it can damage the appearance of it.
How To Clean Outside Of Toaster Oven
Outside of the toaster, the upper part and two side parts of the oven are the same. The front is not the same because there is the door of glass and it can be cleaned separately or differently than other outer parts.
Take the microfiber, dip it into the soapy water, squeeze it and start wiping the upper and side parts of the oven.
After you complete wiping, just buff it or wipe it off with the other dry microfiber you have. This will dry out the soapy water from the surface of the oven.
How To Clean Toaster Oven Glass
Toaster oven glass means the door or the front part of the oven. You can clean it almost like in the same way as the other outer parts.
Wipe it with wet microfiber and then buff it with the other dry microfiber. Cleaning the glass is very important because when you are cooking greasy foods, the grease gets stuck over the glass sometimes.
And the front is the most viewed part of the oven. So, it is very much necessary to keep your door clean.
How To Clean Inside Of Toaster Oven
The inside of the toaster oven is consists of trays, baskets, racks, and heating elements. Let’s see one by one how to clean them.
1. How To Clean A Toaster Oven Trays
There is a crumb tray underneath the Cuisinart air fryer oven which protects the kitchen countertop.
It is very much important to be cleaned because all the grease, oil, crumbs, drips, and other things of the cooking food drop on that tray only.
You can just wipe it with the wet microfiber and then buff it with the dry cloth just the same as the other parts. But the stain in the crumb tray is way stronger than the glass or other parts of the oven. So, you may have to wash it thoroughly.
Don’t forget to put the crumb tray back to its place after cleaning or else your kitchen counter will be dirty unknowingly.
2. How To Clean A Toaster Oven Trays
Inside the oven, there are trays, baskets, and racks are placed. And they are the most important to clean up because the foods are cooked over them.
You can dip the basket into the hot water and use a nylon toothbrush or any other small brush to scrub it so that the stuck foods can get out of the net.
Don’t put them into the dishwasher because they are not dishwasher safe(in Cuisinart air fryer ovens)
Same thing you can do with the other trays of the oven. Just dip and scrub with the brush in warm soapy water.
3. How To Clean A Toaster Oven Heating Element
The heating element is present at the top of the chamber of the oven Cleaning the heating element is very much necessary because it is the thing by which food will be cooked.
You can simply wipe it with the wet cloth and then buff it with the dry one so that no water stays over the surface. The cleaning of the heating element will increase the toasting quality and also make the oven durable.
4. How To Clean Interior Walls Of Toaster Oven
The interior walls of the oven become very dirty after cooking any food. It becomes oily and greasy.
You can use the same technique to clean the walls also. Just soak the microfiber into the soapy water, squeeze it nicely, and wipe the grease from the wall. After wiping with the wet cloth, buff them with the dry one.
Note: Never use abrasive things to clean them.
Importance Of Cleaning The Air Fryer Oven
Of course, you may know the importance of cleaning the air fryer frequently but still, I would like to say some advantages.
- The kitchen looks fresh and beautiful because the oven is clean and shining
- Cleaning the glass or door of the oven helps to look(the situation of the food inside) thru the glass easily
- When you clean the heating element, it assures better air circulation inside the chamber so food gets cooked fast and evenly
- If you clean it regularly, then the dirt will not be stuck over the parts and it will enhance the life of the oven
