Customer Question
My HAC-10 machine has developed...
My HAC-10 machine has developed baked-on residue in the part that heats the inner container, where the dough is placed. Yes even around the heating element. This is from a time when the flour spilled all over and I of course didn't know until later, hours later.
I'm afraid to clean it without asking first; would some non-abrasive cleanser like Bon Ami or Barkeepers Friend work, if I'm careful? And of course a gentle vacuuming with an appropriately small vac to get the any drums? That and a spray can of air or something? I hate to toss it; it wasn't cheap to begin with.
Thank you.

Hi there,

You can clean it but do not submerge it in water of course and do not use abrasive cleaner or cleaners with benzene or thinning agents. So you should be fine just do not get any chemicals on the heating element. If you use a cleaner I would some kind of all natural organic citrus cleaner with no chemicals only.
