Can this electric oven be cleaned?

Posted by andrelaplume2 (My Page) on

I have no idea how this happened or why. Its been like this for a year. After some luck (with advise from this forum) getting my mother-in-law's gas stove clean...I wonder if there is anything I can do to clean this...assuming its even dirty. It looks discolored...like the speckle is wore off...at first glance. Look under a magnifying glass and it appears something has coated over the speckle...which under the magnifying glass can still be seen. Thoughts...

Pictures look like mine. It was cleaned by a professional weekly for a few years before I got it. The spots came of very early with professional care. Perhaps the professional was not too, shall we say, ''professional''?

I would try a razor blade scraper (this is safe for glass top stoves) it does look like burnt on grease. Then get a a cleaning creme for smooth top ranges (I buy mine in the grocery store) use a wet scrubby or paper towel and really scrub. Dry and polish with paper towel. I have a ceramic top stove now and one in a previous home, and if cleaned after cooking while doing kitchen clean up, takes maybe two minutes, no buildup.

the spots did not come off....something is coating them...I used that Dawn Power Dissolver on my motherinlaws gas burner....think it would work here or make matters worse?

The glass doesn't look dirty to me, just wear and age. Take your fingers and run it over the top, do you feel anything? If it is smooth, it'a clean.
I have used bar keepers on top, wipe off and use windex to shine. Works for me!

Naaa, not that old...5 years maybe...interesting, I looked at *new* ovens like mine...they all look like the damaged area of mine....ie the specles almost look like they are undeneath something....I wonder if my oven disign was just a lemon.
