Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner
Advantages: Very effective, Good value for money
Disadvantages: Just be careful!
I absolutely hate the dreaded job of cleaning the oven. It's definitely one of the worst chores I have to do and I welcome anything that makes it easier. I'm not quite sure how he does it, but every time my partner cooks he manages to drop and splatter food all over the inside of the oven and doesn't bother to clean it up afterwards (although he will deny this). The day I decided I needed to invest in some proper oven cleaner was the same day that my oven started smoking due to the amount of grime that had built up inside it!
The first oven cleaner that caught my eye was Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner. Mr Muscle are usually quite reliable and the product claims sounded good. Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner claims to provide 'powerful cleaning action' and 'removes burnt on grease, food and spills effectively. Leaves a sparkling clean oven. No scraping required'. The oven cleaner comes in the form of a 300ml tall aerosol can with a picture of sparkling gleaming oven on - heavenly! It has a safety lid on the top, which is a weight off my mind as I have a young child in the house. I brought my first and only can of Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner a LONG time ago, have used it many times and still have quite a lot left - it's very good value for money. I brought it from Tesco for £3.00, although it's available from most supermarkets etc.
This is serious stuff so there is a long list of safety instructions on the back. You are advised to wear rubber gloves whilst spraying and cleaning (which I always do), avoid skin and eye contact (rinse with cold water and possibly seek medical attention), only use in well ventilated areas, do not breathe spray, keep away from source of ignition, use only on oven interiors, remove oven racks for ease of application, switch off electricity and pilot lights, protect floors around the oven doors and surrounding external surfaces (I don't but I do have a cloth on standby to wipe up splashes).
To use you must shake the can, keep it upright and spray 9-12 inches away from oven walls, floor and glass door (but not door seal, oven trim, pilot light or heating elements). It's easy to use and only takes a few seconds to smother the oven in a generous amount of Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner. The cleaner is foamy white stuff that smells really strong and chemically, make sure you have all of your windows open and try not to breathe it in too much. You are required to shut the oven door and leave it for more than 30 minutes but less than 2 hours (it must not be left overnight) before cleaning - I usually give it about an hour. You are then required to use a damp cloth or sponge to clean the oven. I usually sit in front of the oven with a bowl of water to rinse the cloth/sponge as there is a lot of nasty stuff that comes out of the oven! The oven cleaner works remarkably well - the white foam turns brown/black as it lifts up all of the grease and I don't even have to scrape or scrub the oven, I just need to give it a wipe over to get rid of the formally burnt on food, grease and oven cleaner. The glass door scrubs up nicely too - no more smokey door! I feel like I'm exaggerating but my oven really does look sparkling clean after I've used this product.
Overall this is an excellent, effective, powerful oven cleaner that makes the job of cleaning the oven much more bearable.
Summary: A powerful oven cleaner.
