Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven
takes longer and results in more
smoke than usual.

How it works
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the oven
gets much hotter than it does for baking
This heat breaks up grease and soil and
burns it off.
This graph shows approximate
temperatures and times during a Self-
Cleaning cycle for three hours.

Notice that the heating stops when the 3-hour setting is up, but that it takes longer for the
oven to cool down enough to unlock.
