A more specific question

So in my new meme post, I asked a general question about issues people had with their kitchen appliance, some people saido this may have been too vague a question, so I wanted to ask a more specific one.

A new thing which some manufacturers are trying to introduce is easy clean ovens, what's people's general thoughts on this?

Thanks again

TCM

Not sure what you mean by easy clean. I've had a self-cleaning oven for 40-50 years (not the same one).

Andy, my new one has an easy clean feature. Basically you spray the interior with water and allow it to steam clean. Only works on small messes. Something I had figured out already, I did not buy this stove for the easy clean feature.

Is there a punch line coming there? ?

Would you say it's a good feature though, something worth having?

It's not a feature...it's something added on that tries to make people think they need it. Basically, they gave me a spray bottle to fill with water and spray on myself, then clean as I normally would. No separate buttons or other controls for it.

No punch line. I didn't know what easy clean was so I was asking. Is the interior of the oven coated or a different surface from the normal porcelain?

Is the interior coated with teflon or something ?? I'm assuming "easy cleaning" is different from the traditional "self-cleaning".

I'm also wondering what the difference is between Easy Clean and Self Cleaning?

Nothing self cleans as you need to finish the job but it makes it easier in the long run.

How much easier does this new "trend/marketing ploy." make life easier?

Do I just toss the whole oven in the washer or hook it up to the vacuum cleaner?

I'll need to know how it works before I can decide if it's worth spending my money on it over what I already know how and why it works.


But this thread has made me think that my self cleaning oven needs to be cleaned and the temps are going down to 20 degrees tonight so I might as well go for it to help in the heating costs a tiny bit.

I just meant the bit about having a self clean 1 for 40 - 50 years, I didn't know they had been out that long, is it a feature worth having?

Yes, the easy clean is just a coating which makes it easier to clean, it's a nano coating
