Care & maintenance, Drip tray – Maytag JA580 User Manual
Care & Maintenance
The drip tray and grease cup, located under the burner
pan in the bottom of the Grill body are provided to
catch excess cooking fats and juices.
The drip tray is accessible from the rear of the Grill. It
is necessary to lift up the pan slightly while pulling it out
(see Fig. 17).
Check it for accumulations in the grease cup after each
use of the Grill, and clean it as necessary.
Use lightly abrasive or non-abrasive products only for
cleaning the drip tray.
Stainless Steel Panels
Stainless steel is very durable and should last indefinitely with a minimum of care. Due to the nature of its
brushed surface, minor scratches may appear with normal use and handling. These may be removed with the
use of a fine to medium grade Scotch-Brite* (or similar) polishing pad. Apply gentle, even pressure while
rubbing with the grain of the steel. Do not rub against the grain, as damage to the finish can result. Never use
steel wool on the stainless steel panels.
Periodic cleaning with a non-abrasive cleaning compound, specifically formulated for stainless steel, will
remove any dirt, grease, cooking residue or discoloration that may develop.
CAUTION : NEVER USE ABRASIVE CLEANING AGENTS, SCOURING PADS OR OTHER ABRASIVE MATERIALS
TO CLEAN THE STAINLESS STEEL PANELS, TO AVOID SCRATCHING THE SURFACES.
Porcelain Enamel Castings
Periodic cleaning with a dry or slightly damp cloth or soft brush will keep porcelain enamel surfaces looking
new. Use a kitchen appliance cleaner or a polish expressly formulated for use on porcelain enamel to clean
the porcelain enamel castings.
CAUTION: NEVER USE ABRASIVE CLEANING AGENTS OR ABRAISIVE MATERIALS TO CLEAN THE PORCELAIN
ENAMEL CASTINGS, AS THEY WILL PERMANENTLY SCRATCH THE PORCELAIN ENAMEL SURFACES.
