Getting ready to pop a turkey or other holiday feast into your oven and figure this is also a great time to clean the oven first? You might want to think twice, especially if it’s right before the holiday.
The process of self-cleaning the oven totally stresses out the appliance. A self-clean cycle can heat the over to well over 500 degrees, and if it’s going to break – it will very likely break THEN. Yep, and right before the holiday when repairmen can’t be found or are happy to charge you double!
Instead, give your oven a good wipe down to clean it, but to be safe, save the big clean for after the guests are gone.
