Start the Spring Cleaning with Ovenclean | AD

*This is a paid post is in collaboration with Ovenclean

One thing that I know I don’t do often enough is clean our oven – and I can fully understand why it’s Britain’s most hated chore. But cleaning the oven is something that makes such a difference in the kitchen – especially if it’s done properly. To kick start our spring cleaning regime Ovenclean organised for our double oven to be cleaned – and I was blown away by the results.

Ovenclean work in franchises across the UK giving great nationwide coverage. When booking an Ovenclean appointment your local franchise will contact you to organise a convenient time and date. We were booked in for the following week and Ovenclean let me know that everything should be done within about two hours.

Our oven was embarrassingly dirty before the clean. You could hardly see through the glass in the oven doors, the shelves were caked in grease and the bottom of the oven looked like it had seen better days with so many remnants left from meals gone by. I was looking forward to our first professional oven clean but, honestly, I wasn’t sure they’d be able to clean it all and I was just expecting a bit of an improvement.

On the day of our Ovenclean visit I didn’t need to do anything to prepare. The Ovenclean technician arrived on time and brought everything he needed inside with him – which wasn’t actually a lot. He had two buckets and a few things in each of them and he set straight to work.

The technician protected the floor and started the clean by taking everything out of the oven – including the racks attached to the sides. Everything removable was taken out and he went and put it into his van where he explained he had a bath ready to help clean everything.

Whilst everything was soaking he cleaned the whole inside of the oven. The products used are caustic-soda free meaning there are no fumes during the process and I was happily in the same room working whilst the oven was being cleaned. The lack of fumes also makes it fine for children and pets to be around which is always something I worry about with any kind of work going on at home.

Once the inside of the oven was cleaned the technician went to his van to finish off the process, spending about twenty minutes cleaning the shelves and racks from inside the oven. He then came back, put everything back in place and the job was done.

The whole Ovenclean process was done in just over and hour and a half which I commented on as it felt really speedy compared to when I’ve tried to clean the oven myself in the past. The technician explained that because the grime in our oven was quite fresh, and not caked on for years, it was easier to clean. This made me realise how important it is to have your oven cleaned regularly.

Having a clean oven helps food taste better and also increases the efficiency of the oven. Our oven is 18 months old but looks as good as new now that it’s been cleaned. Having Ovenclean come and clean our oven at regular intervals will only help the oven work for as long as possible – and as well as possible too. Getting our oven cleaned professionally is now going to be part of our spring clean every year.

    Because I’m lazy and hardly ever do it and it would love not have to do it! Your oven looks amazing, brand new in fact!

    Oven cleaning is a job I hate doing, so it would be great to get someone else to do it for me.

    I hate cleaning the Oven, so would love to win this prize.

    I find this one of the worst jobs in the kitchen. I try and avoid it and put it off until tomorrow. Hence it very rarely gets done.

    Because I hate doing it myself. I’d love to get it done by a professional.

    Wow that’s an amazing job they have done your oven looks sparkling clean! I was always dubious about professional oven cleaning but your review was great, thanks for sharing. My oven definitely needs some help I do try to keep it clean but despite my best efforts (not that many to be honest!😂) the grease doesn’t go!

    I have used Ovenclean for about 6 or 7 years now and cannot recommend them enough. I am not entering in to the competition because I’ve just had my oven cleaned last week and it would be wonderful for someone who hasn’t experienced this amazing company to win. Remember, if you don’t win just book an appointment anyway. You will not be disappointed with the results.

  10. February 7, 2019 / 2:58 pm

    You only need to look ay my oven to know why I need it cleaned! There’s nothing like a professional clean to brighten up the oven and once it’s clean the whole kitchen looks brighter. Ours gets very dirty as we are both keen cooks so it’s very heavily used.

    Ah I need this in my life. My partner is in charge of cleaning the kitchen and he always forgets the oven.

    we live in military accommodation, so we get charged if the oven isn’t gleaming lol x

    My oven is desperate to be cleaned but I just cant face it!

  15. February 8, 2019 / 5:05 pm

    I’ve never had my own professionally cleaned before. It’s a relatively new oven and one that I have tried (but failed) to clean properly. I’ve tried a number of products but just haven’t been able to get it back to that ‘brand new’ look. I’d love to increase the longevity of it, so a professional OvenClean would be awesome!

  16. Emma Salter

    I can never get just like new. The after cleaning pictures look amazing.

    I’d love to win as my oven is only a couple of years old, and well used, as I cook a lot of meat, the fat splatters have burned on. I have tried it’s self cleaning function and the branded oven cleaning products, and whilst they clean the shelved, the oven itself does not clean as well, neither does the glass door. I’d love to win this to get my oven looking like new again. Thanks for the chance.

    It is a hard job and when I do it I never manage to get it completely spotless. I also find it hard to do with 2 young children in the house. I would love to win this prize!

    My oven is a bit of a state it only gets done once a year which is just before Christmas, and it gets used every day.

    Every time I clean my oven I look at it all shiny and think I must keep on top of that and clean up any spills as soon as they happen – the next time I look it’s an absolute disgrace. We’re in the absolute disgrace mode at the moment. Would love to win.

  50. Emma Howard

    Because cleaning the oven is my least favourite job!

  51. Kate Phillips
    March 1, 2019 / 1:35 pm

    It’s a fiddly, filthy job and crumbs get in to awkward spaces. Also I don’t like using many of the cleaners which are smelly and possibly not that good to inhale. So I’d be very grateful to anyone who’d clean it for me.

  52. Sheri Darby
    March 1, 2019 / 3:03 pm

    Because I never do it, there are always more important things to do

  53. Rebecca Whatmore

    I must say they’ve done a tremendous job, looks amazing. It never crossed my mind that this could be done, and it makes so much sense to do like you say and have it form part of your annual Spring Clean. Will do doubt prolong the life of your oven, like giving it a well deserved service, and after all, my oven is on, most days, roasting and baking, so yes, it deserves to be well looked after. Thank you for sharing this, you learn something new everyday!
