How do you get your oven clean, get all the bits of food out of the cracks and get the shelves and glass properly clean? I've often used a company to do mine but can't afford this now so I bought an oven cleaning spray, left for 30 minutes but it's not cleaned it very well. Can anyone recommend an effective product? Also, how often do people clean their ovens? I don't think we keep on top of ours enough which makes it even harder to get it properly clean.
I second oven pride. I put all the racks, glass and hob bits in the bag with 3 quarters of the bottle of ovenpride. I then get a cloth and smear the rest of the oven pride around the inside of the oven and the glass doors. Turn the bag a few times so the oven pride gets all around the items. Then leave overnight. In the morning I just wash the inside of the oven and the bits from the bag in warm soapy water. The glass inserts come up good as new.
Oven mate for shelves and grill pan - about once every couple of months as they don't tend to get dirty
Mr muscle on oven walls, bottom and doors once a month.
Another way to clean the shelves is to put them in the bath with about 2-3 dishwashing tablets. The bits should just wipe off. but the oven mate is the best stuff I've ever used as it's gets into all the joints.
cream cleaner and a metal scourer, once a week, shelves, glass removed and scoured in the sink. I used to stick them in the bath, but I have an expensive composite bath now, am terrified of ruining it.burnt bits round door wiped out.
