How-To Clean Your ILVE or Verona Cooking Appliance

An important part of keeping your cooking appliances looking and functioning like new is to keep them clean all year long. Cleaning your ILVE or Verona appliance is made easy by following these simple tips:

Gas Cooktop Surfaces

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 9.44.09 AM

To clean the cast-iron grates and remove any spills or splatters, use a scratch resistant cleansing powder such as Bon Ami or Bar Keeper’s Friend. Mix the powder with water to create a thick paste or slurry mixture. Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the mixture and rub gently onto the grates. Rinse thoroughly within a minute of application and wipe the surface dry with a clean, smooth cloth.

For food that has burned onto the stainless steel stovetop surface, apply warm water to the spot while the stovetop is still warm. Once the stovetop has cooled down it should easily wipe away. For extra tough spots try a general stainless steel cleaner that can be found at your local store.

To sanitize the surface, use a cleansing spray or wipe made specifically for stainless steel surfaces. Note that it is recommended to only use a smooth cloth/sponge and cleanser without bleach on any appliance surface you may be cleaning.

Electric or Induction Glass Cooktop Surfaces

To maintain and avoid damage to the glass on an electric or induction cooktop surface be sure to wipe away any spills in a timely manner (always be sure the surface is cool enough to avoid burns.) Spills can normally be wiped up with a damp sponge, cloth or paper towel along with a gentle cleaning agent made for glass surfaces, which will also work to sanitize the surface and remove any stubborn smudge marks

Oven Interiors

The secret to cleaning the oven is to wipe up spills and splatters as they occur (always be sure the oven is cool enough to avoid burns.) Once spills are wiped up, clean the oven with a simple hand dishwashing soap and warm water.

To get rid of more stubborn grime or odors, place an open pan of water with a little bit of lemon juice or white vinegar into the oven and turn the temperature up to the highest setting and let the oven run at this temperature for 45 minutes to an hour. This essentially creates a steam process and allows any splatter to be loosened from the cavity walls. Once fully cooled, the oven can easily be wiped clean with a smooth sponge or cloth.

Oven Doors

ILVE and Verona oven doors have the exclusive benefit of easily removable glass for simple cleaning. The glass panels can be removed simply by unscrewing the retaining screws with a screwdriver. The glass plates can then be cleaned using paper towels and a non-invasion glass cleaner to wipe away spills and splatters.

Griddles & Griddle Tops

After cooking, while the griddle is still warm, pour some kosher salt and oil onto the griddle top surface. Cut a lemon in half and use the lemon to scrub the salt and oil onto the surface. The kosher salt will act as an abrasive to work away any of the burnt residue and impurities from cooking. When finished, simply wipe clean with a dry paper towel leaving it slightly oiled for next use.

Verona Helps Combine The Old with the New in a St. Louis Restoration

Verona Appliances has helped aid in the renovation of a severely devastated 1912 home, and bring together the new with the old.

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 9.42.37 AM

In St. Louis, Missouri Period Restoration, a company specializing in historic restoration, sought out to restore the early 1900s home. “The house was in the same family since the 1950s and was given to one of the kids to whom then let it go. It was in severe disrepair and required a major restoration,” said Randy Renner of Period Restoration.

The goal of the renovation was to preserve many of the older, more historic features of the exterior such as the wood windows, slate/tile roofing and copper work while upgrading the interior elements yet still keeping it consistent with the time period. “Kitchens of course are the main thing everyone cares about so the look we achieved on [the Pershing project] was great,” said Renner. “Subway tile throughout, with a copper hood. Not a lot of wall cabinets (period) and counterparts that would be similar to what was around in the early 1900s.”

The kitchen was completed with 36” Verona Dual Fuel Single Oven Range in Matte Black. Period Restoration prides themselves in keeping all of their projects time period correct, and making sure every detail aligns with that vision. “[We are] very mindful of each houses’ style and architecture when doing a kitchen” said Renner. “Our vision for the kitchen lined up with the looks of the Verona range.”

Verona Helps Complete An Atlanta Bungalow Renovation

Verona Appliances has helped transform a formally cluttered kitchen into a trendy entertainment destination.

In Atlanta, Georgia Level Team Contracting designed and re-built a 1925 bungalow, which had never before been renovated. When the team first purchased the home, they knew that they were about to take on a very large project. “The house was an absolute mess when we purchased it.  The previous owners were hoarders and it was filthy, it hadn’t been renovated in many decades,” said owner J.R. Torbert of Level Team Contracting.

The goal of the renovation was to create a great house that would be suitable for hosting parties and entertaining guests, since the house is located in a trendy and walk-able area of Atlanta. “On the inside, we designed a more contemporary open layout with traditional finishes.  On the outside, we kept the design details consistent with the neighborhood aesthetic and the original 1920’s construction period.”

The kitchen was completed with 36” Verona Pro-Style Dual Fuel range with an 8” backguard and professional tubular handle. Level Team Contracting prides themselves on being ahead of the curve in design, style and technology. “We chose the Verona because it was a professional 36″ range that looked great and was also affordable. The transformation was amazing and turned into a 1+ million dollar sale.”
