Re: oven cleaning

Hi,
Need to know product that can be used to clean oven and the greasy trays. Had never used ovens earlier and now have a greasy baking tray and some grease left on the oven base...please help..
Should you find that your oven has a self-clean cycle, remember to check your oven instruction manual prior to running the cycle for guidance on what to do with the racks/trays.

My self-cleaning oven instructions specifically indicate that all racks and trays should be removed prior to running the self-clean cycle as they can be damaged at the high temps that self-cleaning requires.

The racks and trays can be cleaned by hand. If they are extremely dirty, I have found that spraying them with the chemical oven cleaner mentioned earlier, placing them in plastic garbage bags, and leaving them overnight will soften the baked-on grease and grime, which can then be removed with a scrubbie or bristled brush.

I have also had good luck soaking racks and trays in a bathtub full of hot water with powdered dishwashing detergent. Of course, the tub needed to be cleaned afterward as well.
