Maintain Your Continuous-Cleaning Oven

WHY DO THIS?


Allowing grease, fat and dirt to build up in your oven is dangerous if not disgusting. Even though continuous cleaning ovens have an oven chamber that helps break down food splatters over time, your oven will still need a little help. A quick biannual cleaning (at minimum) will extend you oven’s life, eliminate uneven cooking times and reduces the risk of flare-ups.

How To:

  1. 1

    Check the gasket on the door and make sure that it seals the door to the oven. A bad gasket allows heat to leak out of the oven and skews cook times.

  2. 2

    Check the oven light. If it’s out, simply remove the bulb and replace it with a new one from your local home improvement store.

  3. 3

    Continuous cleaning ovens use a catalyst in the interior coating of the oven that oxidizes the soil when the oven is hot. Large spills lead to a “glazing effect” that seals the surface and prevents the oxidation of soil. Therefore, it’s important to remove large spills promptly.

  4. 4

    After the oven cools, use a spray-on all purpose cleaner (not oven cleaner) and a nylon bristle brush or nylon net pad to work cleaner into the surface. Let stand for 15-30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Remove soil with nylon brush or pad, and then rinse oven thoroughly with cold water until all the softened soil and cleaner residue is gone.

  6. 6

    After all the residue is gone, close the oven and leave it at 475° for around 2 hours. A continuous clean oven should take care of the rest.

  7. 7

    Avoid using oven cleaners, scouring powders or metal pads or abrasives to clean your continuous-cleaning oven.
