Cleaning a Portable Gas Stove and Making a Blue Flame

If you like cooking, stove surely becomes an integral part that is often used. But what if your stove does not produce blue flame. The heat produced, of course, will not be at maximum. That is why right now I try to discuss the tips in cleaning your gas stove. Blue flame indicates that gas is flowing smoothly and the mixing with oxygen is appropriate. I suggest you to clean the stove regularly, so that the stove will be ready anytime you want to use it. If not, the spills of oil or sauce will make the flame red and blackening the kitchen tools. The flame will not be at maximum, and if you ignore it, it can be dangerous. So what are the tips to keep your stove clean and save? I discuss them below just for you.

First, prepare the tools needed such as filament brush, cloth, and safety pin. For the safety, release regulator connected hose and tube before. Release one by one all stove components, starting from pan support, top plate, burner head, and poles located in the middle. Wash those spare parts one by one with detergent. Special for burner head, clean it with filament brush. For fire pit lane, use safety pin or needle. Rinse the parts one by one by flowing water. Aerate all the components until they are really dry. Clean inside and outside part of the stove with cloth. If the components have gone dry, put them back one by one. Tune lever mixing of oxygen and gas regulator until the flame becomes blue.

For your information, I suggest you to replace gas hose after three years usage. Use regulator that has safety, so that if leak happens accidentally, the hose will shut automatically. Use cloth with soft surface to clean the stove, to avoid scratches. Make sure the binder clamp attaches firmly, test it using soap water drops in the connection gap. This principle is the same with the one that is used for checking a leaky tire. Make sure also the rubber at the end of gas cylinder valve is good condition, not torn, and still elastic.

Finally, turn the lever on the bottom to set perfect gas and oxygen mixing condition. In doing this step, I suggest performing it while the gas stove is turning on.
