Britain's Bonkers about Baking

With the next series of 'The Great British Bake Off' starting tonight, it is time to grab your apron and pull on your oven gloves!

It is widely thought that the baking revival of last year was due in part to the previous series of the show, along with other programmes such as Lorainne Pascal's 'Baking Made Easy'. Last year it was reported that companies such as John Lewis and Lakeland have seen demand for many of their baking products soar. Over the past 2 and a half years, bakeware sales have more than doubled, with John Lewis reporting a staggering 300%+ increase in people buying cupcake cases and a 40% rise in mixing bowl sales!

If you are one of the many people inspired to try some technical bakes, make show-stopping deserts and of course showcase your own specialities, bear in mind that experts advise you have a clean oven to ensure the best results.

Ovenclean, the UK's original oven cleaning specialists confirm that burnt on food deposits in ovens not only create hygiene problems but can also detract from the quality of cooking. Food particles stuck to the grill become charred, and research shows that charred food may contain cancer-causing agents. Bacteria can also grow on those food particles; therefore it is imperative that ovens are properly cleaned.

"The system that Ovenclean uses is 100 per cent caustic free and ensures a safe, hygienic and fume-free environment meaning appliances are safe to use as soon as the cleaning job is complete.

"Ovenclean can remove grease, fat and burnt on carbon deposits in around two hours from ovens, hobs, microwaves, BBQs and Agas."
