Good God.

And I thought I was weird starting my Christmas shopping blush.

Fortunately my oven doesn't need cleaning, so I don't have to trivialise myself with such nonsense.

Are we talking about the people that charge £40/50 and leave oven like new?
Does anyone know how they do it?,someone on here a few years ago recommended turning oven on as high as it would go,and opening all door and windows asbeing the only way to clean an electric oven,I tried that,and the smoke and smell was so bad I live with a dirty oven now daysgrin

Going to mum's


Not entirely sure if I have mentioned that to her yet.....

Had mine done last week, tis gorgeous. The three hours he spent doing it playrd havoc with my topless breastfeeding though hmm

suwoo Thu 27-Aug-09 19:13:08

Oh and he cleaned all of the writing off the dials so we can't see the temperature etc..... which is useful.

Feenie Thu 27-Aug-09 19:15:28

To look at it from another point of view.....what a f-ing HIDEOUS job that must be. I actually can't think of anything I would rather do less.

The author Bernice Rubens reckoned she just moved house/flat when the oven needed cleaning, because it was less hassle!

I find ammonia, or oven pride (which I'm fairly sure is the same stuff!) is fab for the racks, but I never do the bottom and sides well enough. Once when I'd got it really clean I put a massive baking tray in the bottom, which I just dishwash occasionally. I also dishwash all other cooker bits weekly or so. However, I don't do many roasts or spitty fat things (like roast potatoes), so mine never gets all that bad.

DP did ours last Sunday while I had a lie in, am hoping he'll do it next time too grin
