How do I clean my oven?

Cleaning the oven: necessary but a nightmare with all those difficult corners. The oven is always a gathering place for food residues and greasy spots. However, if you turn on the oven full of old leftovers, your whole house immediately starts to stink. Time for a cleaning, then! Fortunately, with my tips, you'll be done in just a few minutes (excluding the soaking time, of course)

Keith's Tip:

Easily remove stubborn grease and food residues with the scratch-resistant steel wool layer and natural soap of the Cooking Care.


Let's get started

Step 1: Wait until the oven has cooled down before you start cleaning

While you wait, you can already begin with the racks and baking sheets. Use a good dish brush to remove caked-on residues. The Smart Brush not only has strong bristles but also a handy scraper for those stubborn bits.

Step 2: Clean the oven with baking soda

Put away that chemical oven cleaner and get the baking soda. Put a little baking soda on a damp microfibre cloth and wipe the inside of the oven with it. Let it sit for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Remove the soda with a damp cleaning cloth

After the half-hour, take a clean, damp microfibre cloth and clean the oven. Still struggling with stubborn residues? Let the baking soda sit overnight (about 12 hours) before cleaning it.

Bonus tip: Make the oven grease-free with lemon

If you have a lemon left over after the meal, cut it into wedges and place them in an ovenproof dish in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius. After 10 minutes, you can easily wipe away all the dirt thanks to the evaporated lemon juice.
