I remember reading a hint re cleaning oven racks – place in tub of hot water with some Nappysan or such like and leave to soak for as long as possible. I used steel wool soap pads – depending on how much elbow grease is required, keep the box at hand!!
I did mine yesterday and am so pleased I remembered how to make them look like new again!
last night dinner was cooked in my oven – the casserole dish sat nicely on the newly cleaned racks; unfortunately due to my right shoulder injury, the actual oven hasn’t had its ‘autumn clean’ – a chore that i will get to some weeks away yet 🙁
pleasure jay – I still can’t do mine as my right arm is misbehaving badly – hopefully before 2018 I will be free of the pain and discomfort so I can get the oven itself cleaned – the racks are still looking good 🙂
I actually stopped using the big oven years ago. I find the microwave and small plug in oven plenty for just me. When I did use the oven it did not seem to get messy (except the door) and I wonder if that was because it was gas not electric.
Salina, I’ve read your post but I quickly reacted to you using a stainless steel cleaner – I’m assuming you mean a s/s liquid cleaner?
I worked for a family that had a stainless cooktop and oven and one day when the cleaning lady cleaned the cooktop all of the markings disappeared, i.e. black dots indicating which burner. Oh, I thought how awful she must have felt so I have mentioned this incident to whoever I feel would appreciate it. 🙂
