Hi, I'm Chef Rich. We're here today to talk about the cleaning process of the Redco fruit cutter. The process is really quite simple. After you've sliced your product, you want to clean it as quick as possible. That gives the product the least amount of time to dry and create a harder situation to clean. So, to clean the unit is very simple. First, you want to raise the handle in the upright position. And any times you're going to be placing your hand near the handle, always make sure you keep you keep one hand on the handle and make sure to keep it in the upright position for safety. So, we've got the handle in the upright position. Now we're going to clean any of the large pieces that may have gotten stuck along the outsides of the unit, or in the teeth of the cutter. We don't want to go across the blades with our brush - we'll catch those from the underside later - but right now just anything along the top. This is also an opportunity to take a towel if you'd like and just wipe anything off that may have gotten on the outside of the machine. Again, keeping your hand on the unit for safety and never putting your hands under where the blades are. Now, it's an opportunity to take this to the sink. Now, the easiest way to do that - to clean the underside - is to spray it off. And now, let's take it to the sink and we'll clean the underside. Okay, so now with our fruit cutter in the sink, just take our spray and gently spray down the blades. With our brush, brush down any large chunks. Again, if we do this right after we're done using the unit, this should come off very easily. And then, simply spray anything away. Okay, so you can see that cleaning the blade assembly in the sink with a sprayer is a safe and efficient way to take care of that; however, if you're ever in a situation where you don't have a sprayer available, your brush and a little hot soapy water... we'll do the same thing here... just easily underneath like this... take care of that without the sprayer. You never want to put your fruit cutter in the dishwasher. The chemicals there are simply too harsh; it'll discolor or pit the aluminum. And always let your unit air day completely. And you always want to follow up with a little petrol gel. Okay? Lubricate all the pivot joints with a little petrol gel to keep things running smoothly.
