You can remove the baking tray by unscrewing the wing nuts. Start cleaning when the plate is no longer hot, but still feels warm to the touch. Any food remains can then easily be removed with a little warm water, a brush, sponge or damp cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents. Make sure you do not scrape the plate with sharp objects. This keeps the non-stick coating intact.
Then dry the baking tray with a soft cloth. The drip tray can be put in the dishwasher. The stainless steel exterior can also be wiped with a cloth. So you can enjoy your Maxima tartlet maker for a long time and always start every job clean and hygienic.
