Like everything else, your Cookswell Jiko deserves regular care and maintenance. Using the right products extends the lifetime of your jiko and keeps it looking like new all year-round.
We are proud to offer an eco-friendly cleaning solution that works well to keep your investment and our beautiful Kenya in tip-top shape. This trio of eco friendly, biodegradable products is specially formulated by the amazing team at Grounded Kenya. We believe that harmful chemicals should not be applied to food or even the tools that you use to prepare your meals.
The trio includes:
A spray bottle of natural, Kenyan-made soap that works well as a regular application after food prep is completed. This rinses off well and is free from any soapy residue or fragrance.
A citrus-based degreaser that cuts through fat and oil, returning your jiko to a beautiful shine after a busy nyama choma service.
A natural scouring powder that is perfect for deep cleans, getting any grime out of crevices and hard to reach areas.
Cut into an easy to use format, these sticks are made from seasonal prunings from fruit trees at Mlango Organic Farm, or our very own African Olive from the Cookswell Forest. 4 to 5 pieces will smoke for about an hour, and there is no need to soak prior to using.
How to use:
Place a small handful of Cookswell Smoking Wood in the removeable tray that catches the ashes below the liner. When hot coals fall through the holes, they will slowly smolder the wood to produce high-quality smoke for meats, veggies and more! Alternatively and for more smoke production, place a few sticks directly onto the coals in the oven, and cover with a bit of ash.
Remember to keep your oven clean, as the smoke buildup from each use will impart a smoky flavor to the other dishes that you prepare.
