Prepping your Appliances for the Holidays

Ovens St. Louis

The Holidays are here! With all the holiday excitement and cheer, also comes all the holiday meals. If you’re cooking or baking this holiday season, then read these 3 tips to prepare your oven for cooking.

  1. Regularly clean your oven. To make sure your oven clean and working efficiently, give it a wipe down with a damp cloth once a month and immediately clean up any major spillages. If you bake and use your oven frequently, clean it weekly. Don’t rely on the self-clean cycle as your only method of oven cleaning! You should only use the self-clean once every 3-4 months.
  1. Run the self-clean cycle an entire month before your holiday cooking or wait until the holidays are over. It’s very common for ovens to fail because of the self-cleaning cycle! This way you won’t have to worry about your oven breaking the day before Thanksgiving.
  1. When you do use the self-clean cycle, don’t run it for more than hour. Running the cycle for a fraction of the time can reduce your risk of oven failure and still is enough time to burn off any food bits inside your oven.

We highly advise against running your oven’s self-clean cycle the night before a big cooking day. The cycle brings your oven’s temperature to over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hot enough to incinerate anything in your oven. This may make it easier to clean up, but it also causes failure of important electric components, elements and fuses.
