Let's clean up your teppanyaki griddle

Remove Grease

To be sure, we all have the same hatred of grease-no matter how much you clean, the grease will remain the same.

A good way to relax the grease is to actually open your teppanyaki griddle and scrape it with a spatula. This is not the most thorough method, but it is a great method to remove a large amount of grease so that we can polish the teppanyaki griddle and then use the traditional method.

If you can, burn your teppanyaki griddle to a low heat, and pay attention to when the grease starts to heat up. Once the teppanyaki griddle has burned the grease, we remove the spatula (make sure it is flat-headed so as not to scratch), and then slowly scrape it off. You should find it easier. When doing this, just make sure to stay away from the teppanyaki griddle. We try to avoid this with a spatula, so we stay away from the teppanyaki griddle, but it is highly recommended to use heat-resistant gloves.

Once you remove the excess fat, turn off the teppanyaki griddle and let it cool. Don't worry about the grease, because we will deal with it next.


Safety First

Remember that we are dealing with electrical appliances. So before we start, make sure that the teppanyaki griddle is unplugged and powered off. This will ensure that we will not damage the teppanyaki griddle (or you to this matter) and we can proceed safely.


The Teppanyaki Griddle Itself

First, make sure that the cloth you are using does not have rugged sides. If you are using a sponge, please make sure that the use side is not rubbed, otherwise the non-stick coating may be damaged.

Dip the cloth/sponge into warm water and slowly remove the remaining grease. This shouldn't take too long, but if your teppanyaki griddle sits in the soil for a long time, it will actually become more and more difficult to clean it up. Once you have enough cleaning solution on your teppanyaki griddle, leave it to soak in the grease for 30 minutes to an hour.

Back to the level of satisfaction, easily wipe off the remaining grease. Just remember to wipe off the excess waste to avoid traces in the future.


Drip Tray

To save time, it is important to pay attention to whether the dip pan is suitable for the dishwasher. If it is, good-just make sure to double check the manual for any special instructions and make sure it is securely in place to prevent it from loosening.

If you do it in the basin by hand, just fill it with warm soapy water and let it soak for 20 minutes. Once the grease falls off, you can continue to clean it easily with a cloth.

Finishing Off

I am sure I am not the only one who hates the air traces on the appliances I just cleaned!

So, let's go one step further by adding "finish".

Take your cloth and soak it in cold water. Gently cross the surface of the teppanyaki griddle, dry the cloth, and repeat 3-4 times. You should find that after this process, your teppanyaki griddle looks brand new! If you want to go further, do the same with your dip plate.


Prevent Grease Accumulation

The most important thing about the accumulation of oil is what kind of surface your teppanyaki griddle uses. Usually most teppanyaki griddle come with a non-stick surface, but if yours doesn't do this, you may spend more time cleaning it and then actually use it for cooking.

If you want to invest in a new teppanyaki griddle, make sure to grab a non-stick surface.

We all know that once we have finished cooking, cleaning may be a tedious task, and we may leave it for later. But in fact, you will save more time, as long as you clean the drip tray/grid surface directly after you cook. The remaining grease/food will loosen, so it is easy to clean.

So, the main tip on this list is to make sure to clean your teppanyaki griddle after use. This also reduces the chance of damage during cleaning and can also save you a ton of time.
