How To Steam Clean Your Oven

It’s the one appliance in your kitchen that works hard and takes a beating multiple times a week and most of us don’t pay it any mind when it needs to be cleaned. In fact, it’s usually never on the to-do list when it comes time to scrub the kitchen and trust us when we tell you a clean oven can make a world of difference. Take this as a reminder to show it some love this weekend and whatever you do, refrain from using traditional, chemical-filled oven cleaners.

A Safer Way To Clean The Oven

While lots of homeowners are tempted to find and purchase a commercial oven cleaning solution at the local supermarket or home improvement store, these types of cleaners can actually do more harm than good.

So, what’s another, safer alternative? We suggest using steam! All you need to do is place an oven-safe bowl or pot on the rack inside the oven, set it to 450° and allow it to run for approximately 30-60 minutes.

While the oven fills with steam, dirt and grease will begin to loosen up. When the oven cools down and you wipe the inside with a paper towel or kitchen towel, the condensation, grease and dirt will wipe away with ease.

For those stubborn spots that just won’t seem to come clean, you may need some reinforcements. Simply make a paste with baking soda, lemon and vinegar and use a bit more elbow grease when scrubbing.

Voila! That’s all there is to it! You’ve now got a sparkling clean oven that’s ready to make your next delicious meal.
