But, my next question is, why do they make oven liners?
Made by oven manufacturers so you think you need them and burn out elements that need to be replaced...

Yeah. Probably.

And then they make the doors to drop down instead of opening like a regular door. That way you feel you have to use an oven liner so you won't have to clean the oven as often. Because you almost have to climb into the dang oven to get it clean. Hopefully self cleaning ovens will be a standard part of the stove just like a burner is. And that will put the oven liner folks out of business.

Some oven doors are removable for cleaning. Didn't realize that for a long time. Sure makes it easier to clean the thing! Self cleaning ovens don't usually have the easy to remove doors.

Just be careful putting that door back on the hinges. If those hinges snap back into place, it can take a good hunk out of your fingers. No need for self cleaning ovens to have removable doors. Just wipe up the little ash on the floor of the oven.

My current range is self cleaning. I had my doubts that it would really do anything, but tried it anyway. IT'S MAGIC! I couldn't believe how clean it was with just a spot of ash in the bottom!

I have a friend that still uses one of those, but it's brown! She desperately wants a new range, but since it's a drop in, it'll take construction to put in a normal range, or lots of $$ for a new drop in range. She doesn't have the money for either. I'm always amazed at the baked goods that she can bake in that wreck of an oven!

Oh yes, the chocolate brown appliances, and the harvest gold as well as the avocado green. All colors of the 70s! They went right along with the shag carpet!
