Please don't be too disappointed in me. When my BIL told my husband what it was like to run the self cleaning feature of our oven, he didn't want me to do it. He said he would clean it, and he did! He cleaned out the loose stuff, then put some hot water on the baked on stuff, and scrubbed it by hand. It turned out beautiful! I think maybe the chicken fat that splattered handn't had time to really bake on hard. It looks brand new. I am going to buy a splatter shield before I cook chicken again!

It's perfectly safe! This technology has been around for decades. Tell your husband not to worry. The worst thing is sometimes there is a smell from all the crud burning off.

I believe that it's safe. He didn't like the idea of having the oven on at 900 degrees for 4 hours. He did the work, and I will be so much more careful not to have spills and spatters, and to wipe up quickly.

First of all, there's no disappointment on my part.

Second, the oven is up to 900 for part of the time. For a good part of the 4 hours, the oven is heating up and cooling down. So it's at top temp for maybe half the time.

Self cleaning ovens are super insulated so the high heat is not a problem.

It's just a problem to my husband.
