How to Clean the Oven?

Cleaning the oven is not as difficult and complicated, as it was, for example, ten years ago.

Some ovens are Teflon-coated and even self-cleaning, which makes the job of a housekeeper a piece of cake.

They release steam, which helps you clean them much easier. So, if you’re about to buy a new oven, perhaps this is another essential advantage you should pay attention to.

The first thing you should do though is to figure out which kind of oven you own. There are various types of ovens which require various ways of cleaning. For both ways of cleaning though you are going to need generally the same materials.

You are only going to need three things. You should have an oven cleaner, sponges, and some soft cloths. You can pretty much buy oven cleaners in places like grocery stores or online.

The first process we are going to tackle is cleaning self-cleaning ovens. Sounds simple right? But there is more to it than just simply turning on the self-cleaning function. Here are the things that you are going to have to do. First of all, you are going to have to remove all the racks that are inside.

Then, prepare a vat of soapy water and soak the racks into it. Let these soak for a while to get rid of all the grime stuck to them. If you have a more standard non-self cleaning model of oven, then there is a bit more labor involved. You will need a pair of oven gloves and a big tub of elbow grease. You need the gloves as the cream or liquid you use to clean your oven is often very powerful as it is designed to burn through built up grease. It’s therefore very advisable to protect your skin.

Most cleaners will be on for up to two hours. Once this time is up you should have a large basin of hot water as you are going to need to wash off the cleaning solution. It is best to moisten your cloth or sponge before you start. Be sure to keep dunking and cleaning your cloth or sponge in your hot basin often. If you do not, then you may be just spreading dirt around your oven, as well as ingraining dirt in your cloth.

Once you have gotten all the solution off your inner oven door and inner walls make sure you empty out your water basin and then refill it. You need this refill of hot water and a clean sponge or cloth as once the solution is off you will want to give the clean oven insides a proper wash down to get rid of any residue. If you don’t get rid of this dark excess lining on your oven, then your first couple of batches of food might taste like chemicals, which won’t be too appetizing.
