Quoted from joemagiera:
I make a lot of corn too. 7 minutes? Not saying I don't believe you, but I'd like to see a YouTube video of you doing this. I'd like to see how you do it.
Turn off machine.
Put the Kettle, empty drawer and metal door in the sink.
For me its very near by.
Take a sopping wet blue scotch-brite that has a dime sized pool of Dawn mixed into it, over to the machine with 4 paper towels.
Wipe down the roof then the sides then the floor.
Use the sponge to squeegee the glass down to the floor.
Use paper towels to wipe down the glass (before it dries) and floor until mostly clean.
Rinse the kettle and parts in hot running water. Do not immerse the kettle in water, its not sealed. Just fill it up and rinse from the top, Wipe off the sides and bottom.
Wipe mostly dry with paper towels.
Reinstall kettle, drawer and door.
If the glass is streaked wipe it down with sparkle glass cleaner.
Cleaning the glass might take an extra 3 mins but I only do it for show, every so often.
I clean my machine after every use, So one gets very fast at it.
The roof and metal parts should stay oily a bit, It keeps it from rusting.
If there are burned scorched marks on the floor from the heater they are cleaned off with bar keepers friend when wiping down the floor, but I only scrub them off every 10 uses or so.
I have 3 machines, So I dont want to spend a lot of time cleaning. Ive learned to be super efficient.
