When you’ve taken the time to prepare and cook dinner for family or friends, the last thing you want is for it to be sabotaged by your oven. Old grease and grime inside your oven will heat up and can smoke, leaving everything with an unpleasant taste. It can also interfere with the natural travel of hot air around the interior, meaning It can mess with the temperature. This can deflate sponges and not cook food thoroughly causing a health hazard with food such as chicken.
Oven cleaning can be a tough job, but taking preventative measures can help to reduce the frequency that your oven needs cleaning:
- Place a baking tray at the bottom of your oven when cooking food which may drip.
- Line your oven trays with baking paper to catch any spills.
- Once your oven has cooled, wipe up any spills every time you use it.
Doing this, along with having it professionally cleaned every now and again should avoid any dinner party disasters.
