Does your oven give off the smell of burnt food every time you use it? Maybe it’s time for n oven cleaning session. People are notoriously lazy when it comes to cleaning their ovens. The key is little effort, but often, with a deep clean once every few months. As well as cleaning, try to use tin foil for fatty foods, and lids to catch spillage. Don’t leave spilled food to dry and harden until it seems impossible to remove – simply give it a wipe straight away and save yourself extra work and time. 


Why Should I get my Oven Cleaned?


Obviously, keeping it clean has hygienic benefits, but one reason that is often overlooked may surprise you: fire. A dirty oven full of grease and crusted dry food really can catch fire. Clean ovens are also more efficient because the heat is distributed more evenly with less gas or electricity needed. A clean oven is essential for baking to give more accurate heat, and therefore better results. Also, how are you going to see what’s going on inside if the glass is dirty? If you have to keep opening the oven door to check your progress, you will lose heat and add time to the process. This will result in the oven door being opened to check on cooking.

How to Clean Your Oven 


First of all, buy some scouring pads, a wire brush, or even a toothbrush for the corners. A sponge will just get caked with grease and dirt, so save that for wiping down later. Put down some newspaper on the floor to catch any food waste or dirty water. To start with, get those rubber gloves on and start brushing away any loose bits of food. Take out any baking trays or shelves and leave them to soak. After that, open the windows for ventilation and apply some cleaning spray to every inner surface. Let the spray soak into all of the grime for 10-15 minutes, and scrub it off. You might need to repeat the process a few times if it’s really bad in there, and once you can see the metallic surfaces again, wipe it down with a sponge or wet cloth. 


If you don’t want to use strong chemical cleaning products, there’s always the old school, but highly effective baking soda and vinegar method. Baking soda is a natural deodoriser, as well as an abrasive, which helps with scrubbing. Vinegar is acidic, and also very effective for limescale. Simply mix baking soda and white wine vinegar in equal measures in a large jar and apply it generously. When you mix it together, don’t forget about the fizzy reaction! For the best results, leave the mixture on the oven surfaces all night, and simply wipe away the filth in the morning.
