I've got into the habit of routinely dipping pyrolytic panels, even if they don't look obviously dirty. Just wondering what people's thoughts are on this. Do you sometimes just remove them, clean behind and then replace without dipping?
My dip tank is technically caustic, it is a fairly weak solution of FF. But anything and everything goes in there. Seriously. My pan stands don't turn white, burners don't go black, and I even waft extractor filters for a moment or two! I find having a weak solution and running the tank very hot gives me the best of both worlds.
Yes... Exactly my thoughts. Even when they look clean, a lot comes out of them.
