Reasons to Keep Your Oven Clean
The oven is one of the most overlooked kitchen appliances when it comes to cleaning. Whilst most homeowners know that it’s important to clean the oven, it can be difficult to schedule a time for oven cleaning. One of the reasons being the oven must be cold before cleaning. So you may notice the oven needs cleaning while using it, but the job can be easily forgotten about afterward.
However, neglecting the cooker can be dangerous, so it’s wise to understand the importance of a clean oven and schedule a time for this task or, even easier, book a professional oven cleaning appointment.
There are many vital reasons to keep your oven clean, so we have listed them below:
One of the most important reasons to keep your oven clean is because is it much safer to cook in a clean oven, compared to a dirty oven. A dirty oven filled with grease, grime and food debris is at a higher risk of fire compared to a clean oven. Accidental spills on the inside of the oven can begin to burn. Generating fumes and smoke, so it’s best to clean up spills as soon as the oven is cold or use an oven liner to catch food.
Regularly cleaning your oven will help it operate at full capacity for longer. Clean ovens are more energy efficient because the heat is distributed efficiently with less energy needed. This is especially good news for those who like to bake, as an efficient oven will produce more even baking.
Plus, if your oven door is covered in grime you will not be able to see the food inside. This will result in the oven door being opened to check on cooking. Every time the oven door is opened, heat escapes and lowers the temperature inside the oven, so the oven will not perform as efficiently.

When you use a dirty oven, you risk contaminating the food you are cooking with food grime from previous meals. This will be most noticeable if you are baking something sweet like a cake after cooking a roast dinner or a curry. Regularly cleaning the oven will eliminate fat and grease build up between meals cooked and reduce the risk of contamination.
Regularly cleaning your oven or using a professional oven cleaning service is important for the longevity of your cooker. Cleaning your oven often will help your oven work for as long as possible. A dirty oven covered in grease and carbon deposits must work much harder to heat and maintain the cooking temperature. Therefore, the oven may wear out much quicker than a regularly cleaned cooker.
So not only will keeping your oven clean help avoid health and safety hazards, but it will also keep your oven efficient and performing better for longer.
