Self clean ranges are responsible for eliminating millions of hours of kitchen chores. They have freed us from the despicable and onerous task of cleaning out our ovens by hand.
If you have ever manually scrubbed out your oven after a spill, or just because it needed to be done, you know how difficult and time consuming it can be. Any food in your oven that has spilled is going to be baked on and stuck good. The cleaning process usually involves vigorous scrubbing, scraping (which could damage the finish of your oven) and toxic, smelly chemicals. You will probably want to use gloves. And getting into the oven to clean it is not easy, since you have to reach over your oven door to get to the entire interior. You will most likely be sore later.
Make sure the next range or stove you purchase comes with a self-cleaning oven. All you have to do with a self-cleaning oven is turn the oven on to its self cleaning cycle and walk away. The oven takes care of the mess, incinerating any stuck on foods and reducing them to ash. Don't you have better things to do with your time, anyway?
While having a self clean option in your new oven is great, there are many other modern features that these /appliances.html can have as well. Some models have the convenient and powerful convection ovens that cook faster and more evenly than conventional ovens. Some range units have a double oven, which can come in handy for baking and roasting multiple batches or recipes at the same time, at different temperatures.
