How to Clean Your Oven

Cleaning the oven is no fun task. But if you follow a few easy steps, you will look back on this chore as not so bad after all:

  1. First, you need to know what kind of oven you have so you can prevent damage. Is it a self-cleaning, textured, or a regular non self-cleaning model? Also make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions for upkeep on your stove.
  2. For self-cleaning ovens, you can run the self-cleaning cycle as much as you would like and when it is finished, any spill will be reduced to a powdery ash that is easy to wipe away. Keep a window open so smoke does not stick to your walls and ceiling. It may be necessary to wash the oven door and frame with a cleaner to remove soil residue. Rinse with soapy water (do not scrub) the rubbery gasket that seals the oven door. Use gentle cleaners for inside of oven.
  3. Textured ovens have a distinct surface with a rough porcelain layer that is meant to burn off food over time. Wipe inside when oven is cool and never use abrasives or oven cleaners on interior.
  4. For non self-cleansing ovens, wipe up spills each time oven cools. Use oven cleaner for stubborn stains.
