- Step 2: Remove and clean interior rack and tray Remove the toasting rack and baking and broiling trays, clean them with a sponge and soapy solution, rinse, and dry.
- Step 3: Remove and clean crumb tray Remove the crumb tray, dumping the crumbs into the sink. Clean the tray with the soapy sponge, rinse it, and dry.
- TIP: For stubborn stains, spray with a degreaser, wait a few minutes, then scour and rinse.
- Step 4: Clean interior walls Rinse and wring out the sponge to remove most of the soap. Then, clean the interior walls and glass door, avoiding the heating coils.
- TIP: Avoid using abrasive chemicals or steel wool, which can scratch the finish.
- Step 5: Clean the outside Spray a little glass cleaner on the cloth to clean the outside of the toaster oven, including the glass door.
- Step 6: Replace dry parts Replace the dry rack and trays and your shiny, clean toaster oven is ready to go back to work.
