There are many cleaning chores, but only a few of them come close to the bother that is oven cleaning. The greasy mess that you often need to deal with inside and the fact that it usually involves dangerous ingredients can make you frown.
Wouldn’t it be lovely having to clean less? It would be something you are thrilled about. It is a good thing then that it is possible to minimise the need to clean the oven, as it only takes learning from your mistakes and avoiding them. Here are a few things you are guilty of, which contribute to the need to clean your oven more often:
- You do many cooking experiments – cooking is all fun until another attempt of yours ends up badly. Maybe there were too many ingredients, or perhaps you didn’t quite get the cooking times right. Regardless of what contributed to the failure, it is your oven that has to pay the price. To reduce the bad cooking outcomes, maybe you should do a little research first and prepare well. If you are not sure about a given recipe, make a small scale attempt first, instead of going all-in on it. Your oven will undoubtedly get less messy that way.
- You don’t deal with spills quickly – even if you are careful and do everything by the book, spills and stains are inevitable. It is not a question of if, but rather when the interior of the oven will acquire a stain. The best way to address the situation is to clean it as soon as possible, which means when the oven has had time to cool off. Leaving the stain to linger will only harden it and make it that much more difficult to clean and expand upon further re-heating of the appliance.
- You don’t protect the oven during cooking – one more thing many people are guilty is making absolutely no effort to minimise the risk of a mess during cooking. It is effortless to reduce the hassle by placing a baking sheet on the bottom of the oven to catch spills. You can also protect the appliance with the help of a baking tray.
- You don’t protect the food during cooking – the main reason why the oven interior gets messy is that of the grease vapour. One way to stop that is to use cooking bags, which keep it contained. There is no doubt that the outcome will be a well-cooked meal and a less messy oven.
- You don’t resort to professional cleaning services – getting your oven deep cleaned every now and then has a significant impact on its cleanliness. The pros utilise steam cleaning gear that removes the accumulated grease and leaves the interior shining like new. You should make sure your oven receives this treatment every few months at the very least.
Now that you know what to avoid when it comes to oven cleanliness, you can better keep this appliance in top shape.
