Modern ovens are a marvel. Equipped with a large glass window and a light bulb (which must be left on at all times), passing visitors have the opportunity to be shamed by your oven’s spotless interior vis a vis their own.


But, sadly, this appliance also has a dark side, for that same light can taunt you like a shiny schoolyard bully, harshly exposing even the tiniest bits of crusty, blackened food that were not effectively removed.



Don’t kid yourself; a self-cleaning oven isn’t. Heating up that disgusting food residue doesn’t eliminate it. Instead, use a handy spray oven cleaner, whose noxious fumes melt the grime off like nuclear waste. Then simply wipe away!




Keep a crash cart handy in case of loss of consciousness.
