How To Clean Burnt Food In An Oven

Now that the cooler weather is here, we’ll be using our ovens more and more. And you know what that means? The appliance will get dirtier from food falling causing stains and odors. Luckily, our friends over at Real Simple found an easy way to clean up burnt food in an oven.

After the oven cools, remove large pieces of food with a plastic spatula. Then, scatter baking soda over the remaining particles and spray with water. Allow this to sit overnight and scrub with a cloth.

We like this advice because it requires very little elbow grease and will definitely come in handy this time of year.
