In the Article Information System, you can find the user guide of all Hendi products that thoroughly explain how to clean and maintain your product. We have listed some general tips for you.

Cleaning Stainless Steel
The best way to clean stainless steel is by using warm water with detergent and a scouring pad. Alternatively, some water mixed with vinegar or lemon juice also works well (20% vinegar – 80% water). Always rinse well after cleaning with warm water and dry thoroughly. If you don’t dry the stainless steel well, calcium and sodium chloride from the water can affect the stainless steel, causing rust and marks.

Descaling Appliances
It is very important that appliances such as a coffee machine, a percolator, an ice cube machine or a dishwasher are descaled regularly. Even when you live in an area where the water is relatively soft. You can find the proper procedure to descale your appliance in the user manual.

General Guidelines When Descaling
To descale an appliance you can use a solution of water and pure lemon juice, citric acid or kitchen grade vinegar. The ratio of lemon juice or kitchen grade vinegar is 1/3 to 2/3 of water. For citric acid, as with specially developed descaling products for coffee machines, it is important to follow the instructions on the packaging for the best results. If some of the calcium remains, you can remove it with a scouring pad. After descaling your appliance, please be sure to clean it with water and detergent and then thoroughly rinse it with clean water.

Using a filter or water softening device
If you live in a calcium rich area, Hendi recommends that you use a filter or water softening device. Having little or no calcium in your water supply can significantly improve the longevity and performance of your appliance and prevents calcium build-up in boilers, hot water elements and on taps. It also prevents the white tarnish you sometimes get on glasses and plates.

Cleaning Ovens
Remember to always switch off the oven and remove the power plug before cleaning the oven. The outside of the oven should be cleaned with a moist cloth and a mild cleaning agent. To clean the inside, we recommend to use a moist cloth with washing detergent. Do not use abrasive agents or sharp, pointy objects.

For the removal of burned food rests you can use a special oven cleaner. This makes cleaning your oven easier when the oven is approximately 80˚C. Grime comes loose more easily when the inside is heated.
