How to clean and descale the oven using the pot method

When it comes to cleaning, if there’s one truly boring and heavy chore to do, it’s  cleaning the oven  .

Encrusted fats and other food residues  accumulate inside our oven which, over time, harden to such an extent that they become practically impossible to remove without the help of a dedicated product.

The problem is that most of these products are loaded with chemicals and are really harsh. Although they are effective against dirt, they are bad for our health and there is a risk of them ending up in our food.

In this article, we propose a method that is a valid alternative to  oven scrubbing and cleaning products  . Read on to find out what it is.

To put the method into practice we need a  pan suitable for cooking in the oven  . These are pans that can withstand very high temperatures, almost always made of ceramic, soapstone, cast iron or stainless steel.

Fill the saucepan with  water  , then pour in  half a glass of vinegar and the juice of a lemon  . The steam from this solution will help  clear the oven and neutralize bad odors  .

Set the oven to 250 degrees, then place the pan and leave it for 30 minutes.

Immediately afterwards, turn off the oven and let it cool. Before it is completely cold, taking care not to burn yourself, use a cloth or sponge to remove any residue, which will come off easily.
