Self Cleaning Oven Safety Tips
As one of the most hated household chores, oven cleaning ranks among the top; which is why so many people invest in self-cleaning ovens. There are some downsides and possible hazards to be aware of before using your self cleaning oven such as smoke, fumes, and even possible fires if the oven contains a lot of grease or food particles.
The self cleaning ovens use a process called Pyrolytic cleaning which burns off grease and food particles by reaching temperatures of up to 500 degrees. The food particles turn to ash and then can be wiped away.
Some important tips to follow before using your self cleaning oven are:
- Make sure there isn't an over abundance of grease and food particles in your oven.
- Make sure the oven door seal and other sealing mechanisms are working perfectly.
- Make sure the kitchen is well ventilated while using the self cleaning oven.
- Make sure to follow all instructions from the manufacturers.
