How to clean a plancha plate ?

  • First, turn off the plancha.

  • Use a metal spatula to scrape off food or grease residue on the surface of the plate. You can do this when the plaque is still hot, but be careful not to burn yourself.

  • Using a clean cloth, remove any residue left on the surface of the plancha.

  • If the plate is very dirty, you can use a mixture of water and white vinegar to clean it. Spray the solution on the surface of the plancha and let it sit for a few minutes. Then rub the plate with a soft brush and rinse with clean water.

  • If the plancha hob is still dirty after cleaning, you can use a special hob cleaner following the manufacturer's instructions.

How to use a plancha plate ?

How to choose a plate for plancha ?

  • Size: The choice of plate size depends on how many people you usually cook for and how much space is available in your kitchen.

  • Material: Hobs can be made of different materials such as aluminum, cast iron, stainless steel, etc.

  • Surface type: Some plates have a smooth surface, others have a ridged surface. If you want to grill meats or vegetables, a plancha with a ridged surface may be more suitable.

  • Functionality: Some planchas have additional functions, such as temperature adjustment, non-stick surface, trays to collect excess fat, etc.

What is the difference between a cast iron and steel plancha plate ?

Both cast iron and steel hobs are great choices for cooking on a flat surface, but there are a few differences between both:

  • Heat retention: Cast iron plates retain heat better than steel plates, making them ideal for cooking foods that require high and homogeneous heat, such as pancakes or steaks.

  • Durability: cast iron is more durable than steel. It is also less likely to deform under the effect of heat.

  • Treatment : Cast iron plates should be treated to prevent rust and create a non-stick surface. Steel plates do not need to be treated.
