Ovens that can clean themselves
Even though they are called “self-cleaning ovens” they can’t really perform this task completely. In fact, you still need to be involved, because you have to wipe up the residue when the cleaning cycle is over.
“While they do reduce small food particles to ash, self-cleaning ovens do require their owner’s input afterward,” says Cyrus Bedwyr, a professional kitchen and oven cleaning specialist with Fantastic Services. “If you don’t clean your oven from time to time and rely just on the self-cleaning function, it’s inside will begin to resemble a coal mine in no time.”
In addition, self-cleaning ovens require a lot of energy to complete the cleaning cycle and the fumes that they emit can be harmful to pet birds as well.
