Last night I finally took it upon myself to clean the oven. Of course, I'd already sprayed the sucker down with Easy Off the night before and let it sit for 24 hours. Is there not any other (or easier) way to clean it? I've not found self-clean to be all that and while I usually don't make too many messes to begin with, here lately I've been making pies with a butter base. Any small spill causes the oven to smoke and I couldn't stand it any more. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
