Keeping your Magma Gas Barbecue Clean

Exterior: clean the exterior after use with soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge. Keep the barbecue covered between uses.

Interior: remove heavy residue from the grill and empty the grease tray between uses. Completely disassemble and clean the barbecue at least once a year, depending on use, and always prior to long-term storage.

Grates: coat the grates with vegetable oil before use to prevent food from sticking. Clean with a brass wire brush while the grill is warm.

Ceramic electrode: keep the electrode, located beside the burner, free from debris. Be careful not to damage the ceramic insulation or bend the wire.

Control valve: don't attempt to adjust or disassemble. Remove any obstructing debris from the orifice with a pin or needle.

Do not clean the barbecue with steel wool or abrasive cleaner.
