Range Cooker Cleaning Training

Range Cooker Cleaning Training

So this week I am out training our new franchisee, John Rorke of Wolverhampsinglerangecookerton West. On Tuesday he started doing his real world ovens with a single oven and hob in Clifton in Bristol. The hob was actually an unusual NEFF five burner which I have only cleaned myself a few times before. The oven was an older NEFF oven with black enamel inside. But a nice job for John to start on.

The clean went very well and the customer was very happy.

On Wednesday John cleaned a three oven AGA. We normally do the AGA cleaning towards the end of the training, but this one appeared and it was local so we decided to do it. John did a fabulous job on this. In the afternoon we went into Bristol and cleaned a single oven, hob and extractor. This was a straight forward clean. The only problem really was finding somewhere to park when we got there but after driving around the block I found a space that was convenient.

On Thursday John did range cooker cleaning, as well as the splashback and extractor hood. This wasn’t an easy job and I helped him a lot with the really dirty hob. The range was in a pub and on the way there I was wondering how it got booked in for us. I was thinking if it’s a commercial range there is no way we could do it, as it would have been too big of a job for training. But when we got there, it was standard domestic range but it was in the pub kitchen just behind the bar. The Landlady said “We don’t do food in the pub”. I thought that this is probably true now and this is the reason why it was booked in. She obviously told us this on the phone when it was booked in: “it’s an ordinary domestic range and we don’t use it for the pub”. But it had been used at some time to cook for the pub and for a long time at that as the top was just caked in burnt on carbon, the extractor and splashback had thick grease on them.

So four hours later we had finished and the Landlady was very happy, everything sparkling like new.

In the afternoon John cleaned a single oven, hob and extractor. John did the whole clean and it really looked great at the end . It was a straight forward job except for taking the door apart. This had another pane of glass in the middle of it. Also unusually the oven had two fans at the back. This was the first time I’d seen this.
