LaCanche Range Cooker Brass Cleaning

I cleaned a couple of LaCanche cookers, one with brass trim and the other with chrome trim, in one house a few years ago and a couple of days later the customer complained that I hadn't cleaned the brass work on the one which had brass knobs. Really we always clean the knobs but we have never polished them. Usually customers are happy with what we do and we can get them reasonably clean using our normal cleaning products.

A couple of weeks later Hugo cleaned a LaCanche range cooker and the next day the customer rang us and told me that she was disappointed that Hugo hadn't polished the knobs as she was expecting them to be  "as new" after the clean.

I booked Hugo in to go back that Saturday which gave us a couple of days to find something to do the job. Searching on Google it came back with ideas to clean brass using Bicarbonate Soda and vinegar in various mixtures. 

But a few weeks earlier a customer had shown me how to use  a product called Maas Polish on the burner rings on his Falcon range - they had brought them up to a mirror finish. Looking on the web site I found that it also cleaned brass so the next day I went to Lakeland in Bath and bought some there. Hugo went back with the Maas polish.

Hugo cleaned the knobs and they bought them up looking like new.  

That was quite a few years ago but we have carried the Maas polish ever since to clean LaCanche Range Cookers.. More recently I have also discovered how to clean the brass burners on a range cookers that have them which includes the LaCanche range cookers. So now we can  get the brass burners to look like new too.

Here is my video showing you how we clean brass on a LaCanche range cooker (and other ranges with brass on them). 

All of our employees (operating out of Bristol Office) and our network of franchisees carry Maas polish and also now lemon juice to clean the brass knobs, towel rail,  and brass burner hobs on LaCanche range cookers. Request a quote by clicking the button on this page or give us a ring.
