Reg Oven Trays

We are moving and are having nightmares about the handover after all the stories I read or heard from a lot of people. Also because our apartment is a very old one. It was reconditioned before we moved in but with stuff that is of 'OKAY' quality a fact that a lot of our friends confirmed when they came over.
Anyways end of my rant and here comes my question: After a couple of accidents our oven racks now look not so great and I would rather replace them than getting a fine. I was at Migros at Lowenplatz and did not see any oven trays/racks. The oven in my kitchen seems standard sized one (it is entirely a IKEA kitchen). Will I be able to get the trays/racks in IKEA?? Or any other DIY place. FYI: I live in Zurich
Also while we are at it, any suggestion for a good oven cleaner would be awesome.
I already searched this forum before I made the post. Hope I am not duplicating a question.
Thank you all

Re: Reg Oven Trays

if you live in a block of flats, you can ask the caretaker "Hauswart" for sourcing info on replacement oven parts.

Sometimes, the Hauswart is willing to do the cleaning for a fee. Advantage: he will subsequently accept the quality of the cleaning .

Re: Reg Oven Trays

Unfortunately it is a old house and we live on the 1st floor. We can never get across to the landlady/owner of the house and she has agencies on and off. We never know who is incharge at which moment.

Local Swiss women with cleaning fetishes swear by K2 oven cleaner.

In addition, if you sprinkle a bit of salt over the area you are going to clean (usually the burnt on hard-to-shift stuff) it acts as an additional abrasive and makes the job a bit easier and doesn't damage the tray itself.

Re: Reg Oven Trays

you could try to have a look at Bauhaus in Schlieren - big hardware store, B&Q-style, they may have the oven racks there...

if you have bit of burned food on the bottom of the oven soak a tea towel in hot water and cover the burned bits with it, the moisture should loosen up the bits and make it easier to clean

You can usually buy extra trays from the manufacturer of the oven, often the price premium isn't too bad.

I couldn't find a tray fitting my oven at any of the local stores. Not sure why, as my oven is standard sized. But I was able to buy one off the manufacturer's website, delivery in a week.

Re: Reg Oven Trays

As per Mel's comment - go to the manufacturer - in my experience the prices aren't Switzerlanded. If yours are in a bad state you may find it a lot less hassle than trying to clean them.

My gripe is that I have a Le Creuset ovenware dish which is used for lasagna - for 8 people. The oven is approximately 0.5cm too narrow for the dish - meaning getting in/out requires for one handle of the dish to rest on a rail in the over while the dish sits on a rack!
