How to clean an oven with a blue interior?
Keeping your oven clean is essential for ensuring your meals turn out as flavorful as possible. Keep in mind cleaning the oven manually after everyday messes will help keep your oven functioning better and reduce the need for deep cleaning cycles.
Please note the cleaning options will vary based on the manufacturer, make, and model. Check your owners' manual to learn about the features your oven has and how those work.
How to use the Aqualift feature on a KitchenAid oven?
KitchenAid developed the innovative Aqualift, which uses steam and low temperatures to lose and remove debris and stains from everyday messes and reduce the number of deep cleans required. Moreover, the Aqualift feature requires less than an hour and uses heat temperatures at 200 f to steam clean the interior without using any cleaning products.
How to use the self-cleaning setting on a KitchenAid oven?
The self-cleaning feature is mainly for deep cleans, which are recommended seasonally or as needed.
- Remove the racks from the oven.
- Ensure the oven is empty.
- Pour two cups of distilled or filtered water into the bottom of the oven.
- Press the Aqualift self-clean button and the start button located on the control panel.
- The oven will beep when the cycle is finished.
- Remove the debris and water at the bottom of the oven with a kitchen towel or a large sponge.
- Wipe the interior with a dry towel to dry the inside of the oven.
Why is the inside of my LG oven blue?
Most traditional ovens have a black interior, and you may well wonder why some, like the LG, are blue. The LG company uses blue for the interior of the oven to reflect light to showcase the foods, rather than black interiors that darkened the inside of the oven making it difficult to see the foods.
Safety considerations and precautions for cleaning ovens
Always keep the following in mind for a happy and healthy kitchen.
- Always have the range fan running while cleaning the oven.
- Remove the oven racks before cleaning the oven.
- Do not allow children or pets in the kitchen when the self-cleaning cycles run.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals in your oven.
- Double-check your owners' manual for model-specific instructions.
- Do not get water on the gasket.
