How do I clean the inside of an oven?

It is important to clean the inside of ovens regularly to maintain good condition and to ensure that cooked food is not affected by residues or contaminated by other odours.
Follow these helpful steps to clean the inside of the oven effectively:

  • as we said, make sure the oven has cooled completely before cleaning. This prevents the risk of burns or unpleasant accidents.
  • With the help of a plastic spoon or a hob scraper, gently remove large pieces of burnt food or encrusted residue. Avoid using metal objects that could scratch the inner surface.
  • Mix hot water and dishwashing soap or baking soda to create a cleaning solution. You can also use oven-specific cleaning products. Always follow the instructions.
  • With the help of a sponge or soft cloth, apply the cleaning solution to the entire interior surface of the oven, including the walls, bottom and door. Make sure to reach the corners and crevices. Let the cleaning solution act for a few minutes to soften the encrusted residue.
  • Use the sponge or cloth to scrub dirty or encrusted areas vigorously. If necessary, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to get to the hard-to-reach areas. After removing the residue, rinse the oven thoroughly with clean water to remove any detergent residue.
  • Finally, dry the inside of the oven with a clean, dry cloth. Make sure the oven is completely dry before using it again.

Remember, it is crucial to follow the oven-specific instructions for cleaning. Take all safety precautions indicated, such as wearing protective gloves and ensuring that the area is well-ventilated during the cleaning process. By following these steps, you can effectively clean the inside of your oven and keep it in top condition.

How do you remove black spots from the oven?

To remove black spots from the oven, you can follow a few very effective steps. First, of course, make sure the oven is completely cold before cleaning and, with the help of a tool like a hob scraper, gently remove any burnt residue or food build-up in the black areas. Be careful not to scratch the inner surface!

Next, create a thick paste by mixing baking soda with warm water. Baking soda has cleaning properties and can help remove spots. Spread this baking soda paste on the black spots and leave it for at least 30 minutes, allowing the baking soda to work on the spots.

After this time, use a damp sponge or cloth to rub the spots gently. Apply slight pressure to remove more persistent spots. Continue scrubbing until the spots are removed, then rinse the inside of the oven with clean water to remove the cleaning paste residue. Finally, dry well with a clean cloth or let the oven air dry.

If black spots persist despite these efforts, you might consider using dedicated oven cleaning products or consult your oven's manual for further suggestions. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and the safety precautions when cleaning the oven.

What product should I use to degrease the oven

If you are looking for the best product to degrease your oven, several options are available. Look for a product that contains powerful ingredients such as citric acid, sulphuric acid or classic baking soda, which are known for their ability to break down grease and oils. One of the most effective products is Chanteclair Degreaser with Baking Soda, formulated to remove greasy residues, burnt food and encrustations that build up over time.

A good oven cleaner must penetrate stubborn dirt without damaging the oven’s surface. Before using any cleaning product, follow the instructions for effective, safe cleaning. Usually, you will have to spray the cleaner on the interior surfaces of the oven, leave it to work for a while and then wipe it off with a sponge or cloth.

Alternatively, you can prepare a homemade cleaner using natural ingredients like white vinegar.

Regardless of the product, it is essential to ventilate the room well while cleaning the oven and use protective gloves to avoid direct contact with chemical cleaners.

The oven should be cleaned regularly to maintain optimal operation and prevent burnt food from accumulating.

Take note!

Summarising, here are five valuable tips for how to wash your oven:

  1. Protect delicate surfaces: cover the exposed parts of the oven (electrical heating elements or gas distributor) with aluminium foil or special protectors to prevent damage when cleaning.
  2. Remove the shelves and accessories: before cleaning the oven, remove all shelves, pans and accessories and wash them separately.
  3. Pre-treatment of spots: if there are stubborn spots or encrustations, you can apply a dedicated detergent directly to them and leave it for a few minutes before starting your general cleaning.
  4. Clean the shelves and accessories: wash removable shelves and accessories separately using warm water and dish soap. Rub with a sponge to remove burnt food residue and rinse thoroughly.
  5. Clean regularly: to avoid dirt build-up and encrustations, clean the oven regularly. Remove any drips or spots immediately after use and do a more thorough cleaning at least once a month or according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Following these tips, you will keep your oven clean and in tip-top condition. Most importantly, it will be effortless to clean!
