USE ONLY the right chemicals, otherwise you’ll destroy your catalytic converter, avoid this service cost, this is the company Rapidchef uses:
Why! – Catalytic Converter (no vent ovens)
A lot of microwave speed ovens have integral “catalytic converters” (every Rapidchef has a Cat), ordinary chemicals will eventually destroy the catalytic converter and you’ll end up with a hefty bill to replace it, if you don’t replace it, you’ll end up sending carcinogens into the general atmosphere, which you don’t want either! It just ends up being a problem you can easily avoid.
Spend some time checking that you have a simple procedure in place for your operators, with you Cat friendly chemical, so you know you have done your best to ensure the right cleaner is used on your new or existing impingement oven. Whichever microwave model you have, most good cleaning companies supply cleaners for microwaves with catalytic converters, for all makes, if they don’t supply one-RUN AWAY.
The Rapidchef company uses Obtainwise out of Northampton (easily found on Google or the label on the picture), buy it from them directly, there are others and your current supplier MUST have the right stuff, if not you should ask questions. I know your buying departments want to keep costs down, but not supplying/using the right chemical for microwave speed ovens will bite you on the backside, sooner or later, be very specific about what your operators use, write it into you daily cleaning schedule.
