Thanksgiving is just around the corner, meaning family, friends and lots of turkey! Preparation often requires lots of cleaning, but one thing you may want to hold off on is pushing that self-clean option on your oven.
Self-cleaning ovens are able to burn off excess food that may have been left over from previous use of the appliance. It is able to do this by reaching temperatures of just over approximately 930 °F which ultimately burns off said excess food particles. These ovens come with a protective coat that creates a heat resistant enamel and extra insulation to prevent the possibilities of fires.
Typically these ovens are also designed with an automatic lock for when the self-cleaning process begins and also immediately after the process is done. This feature is to prevent any burn injuries you may incur from the extremely hot surfaces
Self-cleaning oven cycles can be super convenient, but it can also take a huge toll on your oven. Even with the heat resistant enamel, there may still be a chance that your oven could burn out its control panel and heating elements.
