Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

BBought new oven by mistake company sent different oven....debating keeping the new one as it has some features my originally purchased oven does not have. However what is making me rethink keeping this oven is no self clean instead something called "easy clean"...which means that you spray it with water, no chemicals are used, then then press the easy clean button, 20 minutes later after it steams it you have to wipe the oven as the steam will have loosened all the spills, etc.

Self cleaning seems much easier to me...thoughts on this, anybody have an oven like this.

Will it cost you money to swap out?

No, as it was their mistake. I am still torn should I just keep it and not worry about the self cleaning option, THe easy clean is good but you still have to get in their and wipe up after.

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

I've always had to wipe out the oven after the self cleaning cycle anyway. So, if the oven is otherwise an upgrade, and it won't cost you anything to do so, then I'd keep it.

Yeah, after I use the self clean, I still have to vacuum out the crap and wipe it down. That said, I'm not sure I believe that the steam will get it all out.

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

I thought both features were built-in, one used for daily light messes, one for larger twice a year type messes?

What oven model do you have?

Why am I interested?

I do all the cooking at home.

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

I am a professional baker... never use either feature. For me, since I have very heavy oven use, I prefer disposable oven liners. They catch everything and clean up is a breeze!

This gets my vote, too. I'm not a professional baker, but as someone who enjoys cooking and baking, in my decades of oven ownership I have never used the oven cleaning option. I clean up by hand ANYTHING that gets by me. I think if you otherwise like the oven, keep it!

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

Have never used "self cleaning" feature either. Which is bullsh!t anyway. I believe all it does is crank the temp as high as possible for a set amount of time. Its supposed to burn off any mess inside. Better than chemicals, but Ive only ever heard bad things about using self cleaning features.

Self Cleaning ovens are great. You should also look into the self cleaning laundry basket and coffee table.

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

It is an LG model.

But oven liners they just protect the bottom of the oven, and can you use them when the bake element is hidden?

The liners I use are trimmable so you can be sure not to obscure the vents to the elements.

Shoot, this is easy then. Tell them to come replace he oven at their expense. Now, if they are willing to give you a discount on your purchase price ($200 or more) to convince you to keep it and spare them the expense, then do it.

You paid good money. You expect to get what you paid for.

Don't fall for the bait and switch. You would not accept it in a partner/spouse. Same applies here.

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

Self cleaning is great. I love having an oven that gets hot enough to melt Lead. It sits there glowing read and after a few hours there is just ash left inside.

Of course I'd prefer a hydrogen furnace, but certain narrow minded spouses object to the risk of blowing the house to smithereens.

Seriously though, self-cleaning seems to work well for me. Just leave the windows open to keep from stinking up the place. I've also heard it can produce fumes that are dangerous for pet birds.

Re: Self cleaning oven vs easy clean...

I would be leery of the easy clean feature getting off baked on grease. Have used self cleaning ovens since 1975 with no problems. Sure don't miss Easy Off.
