Posted on September 27, 2023

Whether it’s melted cheese from your secret lasagna recipe or bubbling blueberry sweetness from your grandmother’s pie, spillovers leave a real mess. Let’s be honest, there are few chores that are as challenging as cleaning an oven with baked-on grease and food spills on the surface.

When these spills are overlooked, and they’re very easily overlooked, the simple spillover quickly becomes one tough mamma jamma to remove. There are plenty of mistakes that can be made when removing charred foods, such as scraping the oven lining with abrasive materials or using harsh chemicals that can equally damage the oven lining. Fortunately, GE Appliances offers a Steam Clean cycle to easily remove baked-on foods. Keep reading and get ready to bid farewell to stubborn grease and grime as we explore GE’s Steam Clean technology.


The Power of Steam Cleaning

When it comes to oven cleaning, traditional methods often involve harsh chemicals and elbow grease. However, GE Appliances' Steam Clean Technology revolutionizes the process by harnessing the power of steam. This ingenious method not only saves you time but also promotes eco-friendliness.


Steam Clean Technology Explained

In order to effortlessly clean your oven with steam cleaning technology, let’s first understand how this cutting-edge technology works. By heating water to produce steam, your oven becomes a steamy sauna for grime and grease, loosening its hold on oven surfaces.


How To Use Steam Cleaning

Here are the necessary steps to use GE’s steam cleaning technology:

• First, wipe away any excess grease and soil from the cool oven.

• Pour 1 cup of water on the oven floor, close the door, and select Steam Clean.

• In about 30 minutes, Steam Clean will loosen and soften all of the grime in your oven.

• When the cycle is complete, use a sponge or soft cloth to remove any remaining moisture or food particles from the oven interior and the racks.

Tips to Make Clean-Up Easier

As they say, prevention is the best medicine. Here are a few simple tips to help reduce the mess in your oven when baking:

• Avoid spillovers by baking your meals on appropriately sized cookware or bakeware.

• If you suspect your dish might bubble or melt over, lay a cooking sheet on the rack below or use silicone oven liners.

• Never put aluminum foil on the bottom of your oven as this can reflect extra heat and cause damage to the element.


Steam Clean vs Self-Clean Technology

You may be wondering what the difference is between steam cleaning and self-cleaning technology when it comes to ovens. Well, self-clean modes require the oven chamber to reach exceptionally high levels of heat to completely burn off baked-on foods, up to 1000°. This method can take anywhere from 1.5 hours to 3 hours.

Most chefs will recommend you not use the self-clean option with conventional ovens because of the potential damage that can happen at these excruciatingly high temperatures. However, keep in mind that most newer models are designed to handle high heat. Instead of turning your oven into the inside of a volcano (a bit of an exaggeration) or attempting to scour the mess yourself, steam cleaning quickly cleans minor food spills at much lower temperatures while saving you time. Since steam cleaning doesn’t involve chemicals or high heat, you can leave the racks inside!
