    Default How do you clean an oven?

    I'm looking for product suggestions, tips, techniques, etc. This mother is not self-cleaning, and DH has dropped many a pizza on it's face in the bottom.

    I used the easy-off stuff, let it sit overnight (make sure it's the stuff that is SUPPOSED to sit overnight), then scrubbed it out. It sucked. I am in no hurry to do it again.

    I think the trick is to get to it quickly, before it all hardens, etc.
    BUT....
    I always forget to clean my microwave and then one day I'll notice it's all crusty. So I put a bowl of water in their and nuke it on high til it's boiling. The steam loosens up all the crusted food and then you can just wipe it off. Not sure if this would work for an oven...???

    LOL! So true. Although I'm sure she'd seizure before she got from the front door to the kitchen. The current level of disorder around here is what her nightmares are made of.

    Speaking of which, where has Hep been?

    Sorry to hijack EVSC but I know nothing about cleaning ovens. Despite my other posts that point to me being a neat freak, I don't actually clean the inside of things that I cannot see.

    Oh yeah, and someone told me that if you put the racks into a large black garbage bag, spray the Easy Off stuff on them and seal them up for a bit, that you should be able to take them out and rinse the cleaner off easy peasy.

    Never tried it though. In fact, my oven is quite grimy at the moment.

    I use baking soda and vinegar on the stove top and under the burners. I guess you could try that on the inside.
