Easy clean ovens.

Quite simply is there such a thing!

I pay a man to do it

I’m with JaneJudge I pay a man to clean our range probably three/four times a year.

You have to get them very hot to 'burn off' deposits - which just put me off. I don't use my oven much now anyway, as I prefer to cook with the air fryer, whenever possible. That's all non-stick and easy to clean.

I get the oven done about once a year. They take most parts out to their van to steam clean them - brilliant!

My oven has self cleaning sides and I have a washable silicon sheet that I bought from Lakeland on the base.

I haven't needed to clean an oven for decades.

Same as M0nica; the only part of the oven that I clean regularly is the glass door and, as that's done each time I use it, it's not a big job at all - a quick spray with "whatever I've got in the cupboard under the sink" and a wipe whilst it's still warm. Done.

M0nica, your oven sounds perfect, can I ask what make / model it is please x

I have a self-cleaning oven which is great but you still have to clean the shelves.

Annigranni It is an 8 year old Rangemaster. Before that for 17 years I had a Stoves range cooker, that also had self cleaning sides. I thought all cookers these days came with self cleaning sides. In fact I have just had a look at the Curry's site and every cooker I looked at was described as having 'catalytic liners', which is what the self cleaning ones are called.

As dragonfly46 says you still need to clean the shelves. I also try to cover everything I put in the oven.

The sheet of plastic I have on the base I only bought recently. It is in the Lakeland catalogue

I have a Neff that has a pyrolyric function which is great. I think other makes do this too.
