    Default *spin off* How often do you clean the oven?

    Cleaning thread got me thinking....

    I don't find a clean oven essential- it's not like it's directly touching your food right? I just open the door to see in lol.

    So we moved in a year ago, the previous owner hadn't cleaned the oven, so I haven't bothered to clean it either. Too many years of crap on it to scrub away IMO. I can't even use the grill as there is too much junk on it and smokes the house out.

    I figure I'll either buy a new one when it dies in the future or hire a professional at some point in the future.

    So do you clean your oven or is it disgusting like mine?

    Thats not terrible in my opinion. Its my DH's job lol. If I were you and you could afford it get someone to professionally clean it and then you don't have to worry about it for a bit lol.

    My only issue with extremely dirty ovens is safety. The more gunk etc the more chance of fire. I have a gas oven though so there is direct fire.

    After years of renting and having to clean the oven before every inspection, I am loving not having to clean the oven now we have bought!!! I do wipe the glass in and out now and then but it is an old oven so that doesn't do much. We plan to renovate the kitchen in 3-4 years so going to see if I can get away with leaving it until we get a new one.

    DH is trying to sabotage my plans tthough and cooked something that has caused a big oil puddle in the bottom. Think it might be a fire hazard so will have to paper towel it out. Does that count as cleaning?

    Let me put it this way... I've cleaned it once in nearly 4yrs. It's was brand new when we moved in. It's actually really awkward to clean as it's an under bench one and the tiles really hurt my knees to kneel for so long. When we get around to cleaning it again, we'll get the professionals in. And that will be right before we move out lol

    Aren't there mats you can put on the bottom? Might be an idea if your DH will be a repeat offender lol.

    Lol!!!! You need to have build up more crap on the bottom so it blends in and doesn't look so gross. God knows how to clean that up, not worth it in my opinion, goes in the too hard basket!!
