Self-Cleaning Oven Care



These ovens clean themselves by oxidizing (burning off) soils at a high temperature.

Wipe up spills promptly to avoid excessive smoke during the cleaning cycle. Especially wipe up spills of sugar (ie-pie fillings) and other carbohydrates (ie- casseroles) which become very firmly attached to the surface and sometimes damage the porcelain enamel glaze as they are burned off.
