Oven cleaning - a topic that can send chills down your spine, but it doesn't have to. Many years ago, I decided to splurge and get a self-clean oven and I've never looked back. There have been many different ovens in our kitchen since then with various moves, but self-clean is one range oven feature that I absolutely insist on. Everything else is negotiable. Why? Because I lead a busy lifestyle and there's so much other stuff I want to do, then be bent over a smelly oven, dodging fumes and garbed with rubber gloves.
Find out what the difference is from a manual oven cleaning to a self-cleaning cycle and why I wouldn't give mine up. Oven cleaning is not optional, but how you do it is and it can make a world of difference in your sanity. Read more in Self-Cleaning vs Manual, Easy Clean Oven.
