A tip I got from the Australian Women's Weekly.
Make and share this Oven Cleaner recipe from Food.com.
- 1 cup cloudy ammonia
- 2 cups boiling water
- Heat the oven to 200.C then turn it off.
- Place a small bowl of ammonia on the centre shelf and the bowl of boiling water on the bottom.
- Close the door and leave overnight, then wipe out with warm soapy water.
This cleaned pretty good, although my oven was fairly clean, just a couple burned on spots. I still had to scrub them a little with a brillo pad. I probably won't use this again - it made my whole house smell of amonia. Thanks anyway.
Before I got my self-cleaning oven, I would use this recipe several times a year. It's not as stinky as EasyOff and it's easier to wipe out than EasyOff. Perhaps the other reviewer didn't notice that the oven temperature is 200 celsius - which is ~400F.
I wonder why the other review didn't go through. Hmmm. Well what I said was I followed the directions exactly. I went to "wipe" out the oven this morning with warm soapy water and after very hard scrubbing then switching to a scouring pad then an SOS pad - I didn't feel the recipe did what it was supposed to. I will still have to go back to my commercial oven cleaner and reclean my oven. Sorry - the recipe didn't work for me. Tried for the November Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
