I purchased "Oven Power" a few weeks ago... reading the instructions, 1 bag per rack, I decided to splurge more $$ so I could do ALL the racks at once (including the ones on the side of the oven).

Now, I haven't cleaned the oven.  I soaked the racks in this stuff.  I soaked for about 5/6 hours.  They SPARKLE!!!  They were black, and now they sparkle - All I had to do was wipe tham over with hot soapy water.

Will update once the actual oven is done - but OMG I am in love oven cleaner right now!!

Will have to try this!

ETA: Question - does it clean the actual oven? Or just the racks? 'Cause my oven really needs a good scrubbing.

Not to burst your bubble - but I find that NappySan works just as well.

All you do is take the trays out of the oven put them in the laundry trough with a cap full of napisan and leave to soak overnight... next morning wash in dish washing liquid and give a small scrub and they will sparkle!!!

As for actual oven, I just use Mr Muscle.

My oven's a baked-on nightmare. I'll be off to buy some Oven Power today and see how it works.

I get the same results with Napisan too. I used it to clean a baking dish the other day too - the type that had lots of baked on stuff. Came up so shiny!

Will be cleaning the actual oven today - after we have had out lunch original.gif

I had tried napisan in the past, with not a lot of success.

I just bought Easy Off Over and have been pretty happy with the results and it's got little to no odour as well.

In a lot of rentals with foul ovens, I have used this cheap but effective method:

Take racks out of oven
Add a couple of cups of clothes washing powder and fill laundry sick half full
Soak racks overnight
Clean with steel wool the next day - most of it just comes off and you only have to scrub a little bit.

I too have had great success with oven power.  It worked really well on the racks getting rid of that baked on black stuff but not so well on the oven itself-but then it was pretty neglected.  I will follow it up with a repeat I think.  Highly recommend to others due to its non caustic odour which I really detest with other cleaners.

anyone have a green solution? I find oven cleaners suffocating, so would love to find out if anyone has had luck with baking soda,/vinegar type cleaning!

I just take them out and soak them in ammonia in the laundry sink, works a treat.

The rest of the oven I use my vapour clean setting with regular spray and wipe (love my smeg oven! wub.gif)

My racks won't fit in the laundry sink so the bag cleaning method sounds ideal. I wonder if you could use Napisan or similar in a thick garbage bag?

Bathtub, or get a container they do fit in?

Green solution:
When we left our rental, I cleaned the oven by turning it on low with a dish of water and lemon juice in it.  Waited for the steam from the water to cpmpletely cover the insides of the oven, then left it going for an hour or so, then opened the door, and started wiping it out with paper towels (and an oven mit on).  All the gunk came off with just wiping with a paper towel.

HTH.

I've tried the Oven Power too, but the smell is actually not my type... I prefer the natural cleaners, even if it takes more time and effort. I use baking soda and vinegar solution. I just let it fizz in there for some time, and it's a little easier to clean afterwards. But the biggest trick I got from this professional oven cleaning company in Melbourne. I decided to call them after I couldn't remove all the grease inside the oven, and the cleaner they sent me just put a bowl full of boiling water with some lemon juice inside there for about half an hour. After that she told me the steam helps the stuck particles loosen up, and it's a lot easier to clean afterwards. Best advice anyone has ever given me!

I do the same as Lazoodle except I put the racks in a massive thick garbage bag with 2 cups of cloudy ammonia and leave them to soak overnight. Costs me about $2.00 and all I have to do is wipe them over with a cloth. They sparkle. I'll never go back to buying oven cleaner.

This was a tip from my grandma ... and it is brilliant!  I hate cleaning the oven but nappysan sprinkled over the racks, left to soak for a couple of hours in a bathtub then all you have to do is wipe them over, grime just comes away. I've found oven power to be good on the oven glass though.

Easy Off oven cleaner is great. Ours hadn't been cleaned in FAR too long and sprayed, left for 30 mins, wiped out with a chux and it was perfect!

I find the steaming method good, a bowl of steaming hot water placed in the oven after you've baked a cake is a good alternative. Wipe off the gunk and a scrub with wire wool and plain old laundry soap does the rest. Wiping over with a damp wash cloth every week or so helps to keep the dirt down.
