We know that strictly speaking the UK doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but here at Ovenclean we love any excuse to celebrate with food so we’ve taken a look at all the great food this American tradition has to offer! And if you’re not planning on doing any Thanksgiving meals – perhaps bear them in mind as a Christmas addition.
People say that blackened oven trays are a sign of a good cook, but when your baking trays start to become greasy or sticky, it’s definitely time to do something about it! Maybe you’ve tried conventional elbow grease, the dishwasher and experimenting with household items in various combinations, but nothing’s shifting the baked on grime? Well rather than just buying new trays (we’ve all been there!), consider the Ovenclean-approved ‘soak and scrub’ method with the inclusion of a powerful, but less-than-obvious ingredient to give them a new lease of life. Culinary battle scars, or just eyesores? You decide! Get Your Trays Looking and Feeling Clean Whether it’s thick, burnt on dirt, or a sticky film of grease, a mistake many of us make is assuming that a dishwasher will do all the work for us.
It’s the hub of the home, so it makes sense to ensure your kitchen is comfortable, practical and safe for everyone to enjoy. When you’re kitchen planning, everyone will have different thoughts, ideas and needs.
This Thursday is Guy Fawkes Day, so with all the fireworks and bonfire celebrations going on up and down the country, we thought it'd be the perfect theme for our November 'Recipe of the Month'! We'll be taking a look at some of our favourite 'outdoor' dishes to hopefully give you a few ideas for some fun-filled foodie creations, if you're holding just such a gathering. If you'd prefer not to cook using the bonfire, it may be the perfect time to fire up the BBQ for some alfresco cooking instead.
It’s the time of year where the scary and the ghoulish walk amongst us and so we are following the theme by sharing some of the cooking fails that have terrified us the most! Keeping your oven clean and tidy would certainly be pretty difficult after this lot! We’ve all been there; quickly popped a pizza in the oven and haven’t bothered putting a baking tray in. Obviously this contributes to your oven getting dirty quickly but it also could lead to the above happening… Hard boiled eggs may have been on the agenda here, but we’re not entirely sure what happened! Luckily the vast majority appears to be contained on the tray, but the potential eggy smell could last for days! We love a bit of Christmas baking but this monstrosity looks like it belongs in Star Wars! Once again, the mind boggles as to what this concoction was supposed to be.
