I've never used the Self-Clean in my Capital Precision...
I confess. We bought our Capital Precision four years ago and paid extra for the self-clean model. But I confess that I clean the old fashioned way because I've read horror stories from people who have used the self-cleaning function in their own (not Capital) ovens only to find it damaged their finishes.
My sister says I'm a wuss. Does anybody have any advice or words of encouragement to alleviate my fears? I really need to tackle this project this weekend.
