So seriously, how does the back wall of an oven get so dirty? I, for one, never really look at it. I mean, I don’t stick my head in my oven too often. Never, in fact, unless I’m considering cleaning it.
You’ll note I said considering. Because while I did get the crusty mess off the bottom of the oven (see before/after photos below), I decided against attacking the back. My wrist was sore enough getting the bottom clean with a half-dozen SOS pads (yes, I decided I didn’t have 2 or 3 hours to use the self-clean cycle and I didn’t want to push my luck that it would actually work).
And besides, who’s going to stick their head far enough in the oven tomorrow to actually see the back is dirty? That’s right. No one. And I won’t tell if you don’t.
After. Looks much nicer, doesn’t it? (And you can’t really tell the back wall is dirty, right?)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
