Oven Racks


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

You know when you go to clean your oven, especially the self clean oven, and you go to put your racks back in, and they are a little laggy and stiff??? Well, if you put a little olive oil on paper towel, and rub each end with the oil, slide them back in the oven. They glide right back in! Voila!!

    You shouldn't leave the racks in the oven during the self clean cycle - it will take the finish off of them and they will be very difficult to slide eventually. Most owners manuals will tell you to clean the racks in soap and water, not during the self clean cycle.

    I didnt know you were supposed to take the racks out when you clean the oven... OOPS!
