Default Cleaning an oven

I have an electric stone/oven and want to use some oven cleaner, easy off or
the like, but I think the oven must be hot?
How can I heat the oven, then remove the element if it is hot.
It is the bottom of the oven that needs attention.
Or don't the oven have to be hot?
Thanks, Tony

Read the can. Cold use.


OK, Thanks, I always thought it said something like "warm ovens clean best"

Self cleaning heats the oven up to near 900
degrees and literally incinerates the built up grease on the oven walls


Also evicts rats that are living in the oven, I discovered. Normal temps
don't penetrate far enough past the insulation of the oven cavity itself.

Next time line the bottom with foil (I should do that too**) I think
there might be especially heavy sheets made for this purpose.


I just use regular heavy foil, but there is specialty stuff, which I doubt
makes any difference. I was warned not to have the element touch the foil
and you may need to pop a thermometer in there as it can effect the temps a
little bit (you may need to turn the temp a little higher or lower to hit
your desired temp with foil in there)

Anthony.

Despite the directions on the cleaner, I think "longer soaking", cold,
works best. I spray my oven cold, wait a day, spray it again and THEN
scrub it after that, 48 hours later. I use steel wool and damp paper
towls to start, dry paper towl to get the last wet bits out.

There is sometimes a few gritty bits left over after which I spray one
more time and soak for 24 hours and scrub one last time.

As for the racks, I put them in a garbage bag and spray them, 24 hours
later it comes off easy over the tap with steel wool and an old rag.




wow ... sure glad I have a self clean otherwise I'd be spending all week
cleaning her.

Mike



LOL, yes, you should be glad and I'd love to have one. In reality the man
hours are very low, it's mostly just waiting. I probably spend a total of
1 hour of actual work between spraying and scrubbing, just can't use the
oven during the 3 day soaking sessions.

Yea, see I have a self cleaning, or more like, the cleaning setting

or
whatever,
but I don't want to fool with it.
Tony



You don't want to fool with the self-cleaning oven (which consists of
turning it on) but you want to fool with Easy Off. I take it you
haven't cleaned a lot of ovens then. I predict that after cleaning it
by hand a couple of times, you will want to use the self- cleaning
feature, and BTW, I would check the mfg of the oven to see if you can
use the oven cleaner on it since it's self cleaning. :-)
