Re: oven cleaning

Hi guys. After 7 years of abuse since its last clean, my oven (not a modern one with self-cleaning function) has now started to smoke and expel noxious fumes when it's turned on to high temperatures. Seeing my air purifiers go crazy and show an air quality not fit for human consumption was a bit of a wake-up call and tells me that I need to fix it asap.

So am I right from reading this thread that I need to:

1) Go out and buy a good oven cleaner. Which good brand/product can I find in either Coop or Migros that people recommend... is K2 still the best?

2) Leave a big bowl of water in the oven and heat at 110c for an hour

3) Apply cleaner and leave it overnight (or however long the packet says)
Use a lot of elbow grease and destroy numerous cloths to get all of the grime off

4) Be happy using my oven once more.

Does that sound ok or am I missing anything?
Buy some more heavy duty rubber gloves that won't rip if you snag them on a corner of the oven.

And track down the manual if you don't know how to take the glass out of the door, it can be very unintuitive or involve worrying amounts of force that you don't want to try without being confident.
