      Janet, the pictures shown in these "dirty" ovens are clean compared to mine. Don't laugh, but I was cooking a prime rib to feed 12 people for Christmas and burned the heck out of it following directions, had the house so smoked up with alarms going off and you know the rest. Thinking of buying a new oven.

    I have always used Easy Off and elbow grease. Best cleaner I've ever used on an oven.

    If your oven has an automatic cleaner cycle, read up on how to use it (you have the user manual, right? If you don't, take the model number and Google stove, the number, and manual.)

    If it is a very hot temperature, you might be cleaning ash off. Now ash and water make a strong caustic, sodium hydroxide or slaked lime, so it is imperative you wear long gloves for this.

    Baking soda and lemon juice. spread it all around and let it sit for a while. Come back and add a little elbow grease and it should come clean!

    Use a Steamer, Steamers are a great way to clean everything in your kitchen and there is no chemicals. I love mine !

    Commercial oven cleaner - like easy off. It is made for a job like that.
