Easy Off

A few years ago, my self-cleaning oven stopped self cleaning.  And I had a bit of a melt down.  So much so that my mother, who was visiting, sent me to go soak it out in a long hot shower, while she tackled the grease in my oven.  The relief I felt to have my mommy handling one of my domestic failures superseded my shame at not being able to handle it myself.

Recently, I visited my mother and when I opened her oven it LOOKED BRAND NEW.  I mean seriously, my mom cooks about 20 times more often at home than we do, and it looked like it had never been used.  I realized I had not tackled this job since the last time....3-4 years ago (I know I know) so I went home with my mom's recommendation to use this stuff.


I know - gross right?  The foil wrapping on the burner was an internet tip I found to make sure you don't get the cleaning agent on the burners and cause damage or smokiness.


Who knew....Easy Off actually is Easy Off!
It still needs some spots managed, but I'm getting close. 

Thanks Mom.

Yeah! Dad did this a few times while he was here too. I hate cleaning the oven... or like I really have time.

I have to admit my shock when I realized the house we are renting did not have a self cleaning oven. But I have managed to clean it at least once a year with the Easy Off. Have not heard about the foil thing, though...And the Easy Off works on the BBQ, too!

Well, damn. Now I feel the need to clean my oven.

I have heavily used double ovens, one is too high to clean easily and the other is hard to get at cause its so low, it is definitely a job I put off as long as possible.
