I have my first self cleaning oven. I had one before (that came with house but the self cleaning cycle never worked).
Tonight I went to grill my steak only to discover that the propane tank ran out of gas before I even started cooking.
So I went to plan B, which was to cook it in the oven. When it finished, I wiped off the inside door right away, but it was hot and the rest was too hot to wipe down.
So I waited. But I waited too long and now I can't wipe up the baked on grease. I've tried scrubbing with a cloth and hot water. And a little soap. And even a non-stick pad a little bit (not too much . . . since I wasn't sure about that). Well some came up but not all. Still sections of spattered grease that looks baked on.
I want to get it off before I use the oven again. I am leary about doing something like the self cleaning cycle and just baking it on super good. I am leary of trying other concoctions that might damage the surface so that I couldn't use the self cleaning cycle.
Mom suggested I buy a degreaser at the store and use that.
What should I do? I know you all probably have had self cleaning ovens much longer and know how to keep the interior clean without damaging it.
