If you want to maximise your spit braai’s performance as well as prolong its lifespan, then deep cleaning your spit braai equipment is essential.
As part of regular maintenance make sure you clean your spit braai after each use to prevent excessive build up. Always ensure that a proper clean is done before you put your braai in storage for any reason.
Tips on Deep Cleaning Your Spit Braai Equipment
When deep cleaning your spit braai equipment, put your braai on full heat for 15 to 20 minutes, this is to bake off any food and grime to make cleaning easier. Wait for the braai to cool down and use a wire brush or steel wool to scrub off any hardened build up. Be careful to work lightly and do not damage the braai with your cleaning tools.
Take Care Not to Damage your Spit Braai Equipment
Soak any removable parts in warm soapy water and don’t use any corrosive or abrasive cleaning agents as this can damage your equipment.
Rinse and dry the equipment immediately, then rub on a light layer of vegetable oil to prevent rust from forming.
Deep cleaning your spit braai equipment is something you can do on your own but if you have a large business with several machines you might want to consider using a professional cleaning service as they are better equipped to deal with deep cleaning on a large scale.
