A sparkling oven!

I absolutely hate cleaning my oven normally I try to wipe it after every use to prevent a build up of gunk and burnt on food. I normally used Mr Muscle or something along those lines however over time no mater how clean you try to keep your oven it always seems to get dirty. This was recommended to me by my mum who said it was a lot easier to use than a normal cleaner. The first time I tried it was back last December when we moved into our new home and the intigrated oven wasn't particularly clean.
A box of oven pride costs around £4-5 in most supermarkets, I try to pick this up when it is on offer and sometimes you can get it for around £3.
When you open the box inside you get a pair of gloves, a bottle of cleaning solution and a plastic bag.
Oven pride is designed to be used inside the oven and on the racks. The product is designed to minimise the effort required to clean your oven and it is also fume free.
You need to wear gloves to protect your hands while using the solution.
To use the oven cleaner you simply pour some of the solution into the centre of the oven then using a sponge or cloth spreading the cleaner to the areas needing to be clean. You then need to allow the solution to soak for 4 hours or for best results overnight. After that time has elapsed you then need to remove any residue using a clean sponge/cloth and plenty of hot soapy water. To clean the racks you need to place them in the plastic bag which measures 540mm x 740mm and will accomodate 2 racks from most average ovens, you then need to pour 1/2 to 3/4 of the bottle of solution to the bag, the bag then needs to be sealed you need to dispell as much air as possible and ensure the bag is completely sealed before tilting the bag to coat the racks with solution. The racks then need to soak for 2 hours and then the bag tilted again to recoat the racks in solution and then left for a further 2 hours. After this process is complete you then need to remove the racks and rinse with warm soapy water.
A word of warning this is not for use on the glass of the oven as it can cause it to crack.
The first time I used this I followed the directions and started by applying the liquid to the centre of the oven. I found I only needed to use just under half of the bottle and this was sufficient to coat the whole oven with the solution. As promised on the bottle there is no smell. I then placed my two racks in the bag and poured in the remaining solution. I left my oven overnight as it was horrendous.
The next morning I woke up eager to see the results and set to work immediately removing the gunk, I was pleased to see that a lot of black baked on yukky stuff came away from the walls of the oven. I would recommend placing newspaper on the floor in front of the oven to prevent any damage to your floor. It didn't take much effort to remove the rubbish from in the oven, I then simply wiped it over with a damp clean cloth and I have to say it was sparkling. My racks were also equally as impressive, I have spent hours in the past using a scourer to remove the black stuff that coats the rack and it never comes off, however as soon as I removed the racks from the bag I could see that there was a huge difference even without rinsing. In the bottom of the bag was a pool of brown water with all the black bits floating around in it. I rinsed the racks under warm water and wiped them with a sponge and the black was gone!
I now use this once every few months, with a wipe in between it keeps your oven looking clean. It is easy to use and saves a lot of time and effort. I would give this 5 out of 5.
Summary: Clean your oven with the minimal effort
