Avoiding The Extra Stuff
When you have to constantly use your oven, you can expect to see plenty of build up that includes extra food, grime, and other stuff that may or may not gross you out. How many times per year do you clean your oven? Do you ever clean your oven?
You should clean it at least once or twice per year. If your oven is equipped with a self-cleaning option, you can use that. However, it is important that you look at the guidelines in the user manual. You should not leave your home unattended if you are planning to use this option.
If you have never use the setting before, you should know that it can get extremely warm during the process. You are going to need to let some air in your home, so if it is not too cold outside, you can open one or multiple windows.
