    Every 6 months I do a proper clean. But I regularly give it a quick wipe out and I keep a tray on the bottom to catch over spill that I just pull out to wash.

    When we first moved in here, the oven had so much build up, it was gross! If it was from our own doing, I wouldn't mind so much, but it felt yuck to be cooking in someone else's mess. I spent 2 days soaking & scrubbing (several times) to get it clean, so I'm too stubborn to let that go to waste. Cleaning the oven would have to be one of my most hated chores.

    Rarely - it's one of my most despised cleaning jobs!

    I gave it a bit of a clean about a month ago because we were having a routine inspection and it surprisingly wasn't too bad!

    When vacating a rental it's one of those jobs that I like to pay a professional to do. They have the skills and chemicals to get the job done quickly.

    If you do want to clean your oven, our glass was just like yours and I coated it in a bicarb/water paste and left it overnight. I used a scourer to gently scrub it and everything lifted off really easy. I used the same paste for the walls and base of the oven and that only needed a quick wipe with a cloth.
    I laid a towel down in the bath and put the racks on top, then put heaps of washing powder and dish liquid, then covered in hot water and left overnight, then scrubbed them with a toothbrush. That had to be done twice 😑

    About...approximately...never.

    But when we moved out of our last place we got it professionally cleaned. If its really bad I recommend getting a professional to do it - it came out really nicely!

    Umm before vacating a rental I will clean the oven!

    Although that has changed now- about a year ago the landlord bought a new oven, so now I have to clean it or they'll know it was me! I haven't given it a proper clean yet though, but I do keep a tray down the bottom, I try to keep messy food covered and not let things overflow, and I do clean the door on a somewhat regular basis.

    I HATE this job, so much so that I've looked in to getting professionals to do it.

    We're in a rental so I have to keep on top of it but the oven we have is a cheapy and not only is it a crappy job but the whole element sits open on the bottom of the oven. I'm nervous of using cleaning product and water in there so I put the job off and off until it gets to become a health and safety issue.

    Just a little tip - last week I took the blackened metal shelves out and soaked them for a day in washing powder. Worked a treat!
    Now they're sparkling.
    I will do the same with the greasy oven when I have the time but I'm always baking something or other. That's just an excuse really isn't it.
