I agree. You have a nice rack.

I'll confess to being lazy. I leave the racks in for the cleaning cycle, and they never look pretty and shiny again, but are clean. I've actually written to a couple of oven manufacturers and asked why they don't make black matte oven racks so that after the cleaning cycle they still look ok. No response so far! If I had to scrub the racks 'til they were chrome-shiny, I'd never use my oven again!!

I have always wondered how the self clean worked since we got a new oven with it. It's just the day for it having read all the post about it, so i'll give it a try. Thanks everybody.

There are too many things more important than keeping my oven racks shiny.

sometimes I take the oven racks and spray with oven cleaner. I put newspaper down and spray the racks and leave overnight and then hose them off it's in the summer and winter I just wash them off in the laundry tub. Not much scrubbing at all.

i do the same thing thump. leaving them overnight with the oven cleaner does the trick. any difficult spots are cleaned with soft scrub or comet.

I have a self-cleaning oven, but I've never used it. My oven finish is the kind that stuff doesn't stick to...I just brush out the burnt bits every once in a while. I also take precautions against things bubbling over by putting foil covered baking sheets underneath likely items.
