How do I clean my oven?

Last modified : Jun 05. 2018

There are 4 modes to clean the oven without the need to manually cleaning. Please refer to your user manual how many of the below functions are available. 





High temperature thermal cleaning is initiated to burn off oily residues to facilitate manual cleaning. 

Steam cleaning 

This is useful for cleaning light soiling with vapour. 


Clean inside the steam generator to prevent affecting the food quality and taste. 


When vapour function is complete, you must drain the remaining water to prevent affecting other cooking modes. You may also use this function for general cleaning purposes. 

Please select from the following options depending on the type of cleaning required.
