How To Clean Your Oven Easily

For non self cleaning conventional ovens the easiest way to remove baked on deposits of food and debris is to place a glass bowl with a half cup of full strength ammonia into the oven. Never use a metal tray or plastic bowl to place the ammonia in as the chemicals will react and ruin the tray or bowl.

Please do ensure that the oven is cold before doing this.

Close the oven door and leave overnight.

The ammonia fumes will help to loosen the encrusted food and stains from the oven. In the morning open the door and wait for the ammonia fumes to lessen. You may want to open a window.

Remove the bowl, discard any left over ammonia and wash out the bowl thoroughly. Use a wet cloth to wipe the oven interior. Any food deposits that haven't dropped off overnight can be easily wiped off. The remaining oven interior can now be wiped down with a cloth and warm soapy water.

Alternatively you can buy branded oven cleaners which you simply spray onto the interior of your oven door and walls and leave overnight. You can also spray the solution onto the oven trays and shelves. Most remove food stains and grease overnight and you simply wash off the remaining foam in the morning.


Whichever method you use please do wear gloves to reduce the incidence of skin reaction and to protect your hands. Do use in a ventilated kitchen as some people can suffer a reaction to fumes. Please do seek medical advice if you suffer any adverse reactions such as irritated nose, eyes or mouth or coughing.


Once your oven is clean and sparkling you may want to line the bottom with kitchen foil or place an old baking tray lined in kitchen foil on the bottom. When this gets dirty, greasy and stained you simply remove the kitchen foil and discard and replace the foil to keep your oven clean and tidy.

That's a great tip! My oven is not self cleaning.
Thanks Carole!

Speaking of oven... yesterday the oven handle broke and now even the glass seems that is going to remove from the oven door. I hope my father can repair it. I don't want to buy a new oven now! Confused

Simy,
You can usually buy repalcements for broken parts of electrical appliances.. Go to the manufacturers website and look for 'ricambi' - there are often other companies that produce copies too and they cost much less.

This is a good site I think. They stock spares for most makes:

Thanks for the helpful link!

But first I ask my father if he can repair it: he has a lot of resources! Wink
If he cannot, I check for an assistance shop.

Update!
Guess what???? I repaired it! Banana Dance
I noticed that the screw was broken and it did fall between the oven glass and the door. So I removed the old screw and replaced it with a new one. At first I didn't notice that, because I've thought that the handle was broken and not the screw.

Now I can clean the oven easily reading Carole's post!!!! Dancing

That is an old saying in England - it is used when there didn't seem to be more than one way of doing something. But then with a bit of imagination another way was found...

Simy you are in the wrong profession. You can fix door locks, handles and now ovens...

YOU ROCK!

I am fortunate to have a self cleaning oven now (but it was a big fight getting one) so I don't have to worry too much about manually cleaning it. My problem is the fact that I don't have a dishwasher!

Well maybe you should have a look at this website and see if you can learn anything. Or maybe she needs a helper???
