    Probably once a year. Easy off Bam aerosol is the business!! Spray it on, leave it for 30mins, come back and it just wipes off. Makes it a 10 minute job! No soaking or scrubbing. Always have a foil lined tray on the bottom rung to catch everything (some ovens you can't put foil directly on the bottom because it sticks to it).

    I loathe this job, but I clean my oven every two months or so, only because I want the job to be easier every time and not caked on.

    A really good tip I was told to help clean the oven racks/tray etc, is to soak them in a good quality Nappy San or clothes wash powder. I put mine in the deep laundry tub and let them soak for a day or so and voila, they come out sparkling clean and silver again after a bit of a rinse and wipe, but certainly no scrubbing needed.

    I've never in my life cleaned an oven. I haven't lived in any house longer than 2 years, so it always becomes the next owners problem.

    Then again I don't ever cook roasts or anything saucy / soupy, just cakes, quiches, nuggets and chips etc.

    Two words - pyrolytic oven. Best invention ever!! Otherwise a quick wipe down between hitting the pyro cycle.

    I will be insisting on one of those for a new oven (eventually, actually even though our oven is old and filthy it's a great oven). I wouldn't understand why you wouldn't pay extra for this- who likes cleaning ovens?!?

    Ummm....I thought my oven had blown up, smoke poured out of it after 15 minutes of it being on, set the smoke alarms off all through the house, and it took ages to get rid of the smokey haze in the house. Called the RE agent, got them to get someone out to repair it and he says 'it's fine, it's just the grime on the bottom burning and smoking.' Me 'oh, the landlord didn't clean it before he moved out, that's his grime, not mine.I put foil on the bottom when I use the oven. I had no intention of cleaning it.' Repairman 'if you leave it on long enough it will all just burn off. Just deactivate your smoke alarms and open window and door in the house, sit outside, wait until the smoke clears, then you'll be good to go.'

    That's how often I clean my oven
