It's a fairly nasty substance - lye in a gel form. Most folks are afraid of using it and I suppose they should be. I think it's neat stuff myself.

These days it's probably easier and cheaper to use the self-cleaning cycle on your oven. This would cost about a buck of electricity in the US and around $2.80 in Hawaii.

The first time I used the self-cleaning cycle on my Samsung range, it fried the temperature sensor in the oven. That cost me around 17 bucks to replace.

No loss either way, imo. I don't have a self-cleaning oven than
mySELF has to clean it occasionally. I've had dishwashers forever
and I still prefer to hand wash. Worthless appliance imo unless
you have a very large family or large family get-together.

I'd choose extra cabinet space over a dishwasher. Ferrets get
trapped underneath them too.

Self cleaning ovens use a tremendous amount of ENERGY to self clean! But you can use one to warm a small house!

Always think from an energy standpoint/perspective! Imagine having to generate that energy on a bicycle pedal generator! ;-)


You're an imbecile. I run the self-clean cycle in the winter, and the
furnace does not call for heat while it is doing so. In the summer, I don't
use the oven, so there's no need to clean it.

We run the dishwasher every day, and usually twice on Saturdays
and Sundays.

No pets. I won't have anything that doesn't shit in the toilet.

I ran mine the week before Christmas. Fortunately, the outside
temperature was abnormally high, so I could open the window and leave
the exhaust fan on. I usually leave that task for cool autumn or spring
days. I do use my oven occasionally in the summer for baking. It is
hard to bake a fruit pie without some of the sticky juice dripping over
the edge. I have learned to put fruit pies on pans to catch that stuff.

When there are peach and cherry orchards less than a mile from home it
is impossible not to bake fresh fruit pies, no matter how hot it is outside.

When our old dishwasher died I did not want to replace it. I find it
faster and easier to do dishes by hand when there is just the two of us.
My wife disagreed and it was replaced. I still prefer to do it by hand.

When we first moved here, for a week we had only a few dishes and
utensils so I washed them after every meal. What a PITA. Once we had
our stuff, the machine took over. Now it runs about every other day.

No dishpan hands here!

Same here. I've never wanted to work as an unpaid scullery

Early last year, I had a bad fall hurting my back, and was off my feet for a
couple of months. D. bought a dishwasher! I had never wanted one and when
the one I'd had died years ago, decided not to bother to renew it. I was
quite happy to wash the dishes etc myself, so I wasn't too pleased.

I use it now!!! And I am glad to have it)

For two people I find the dishwasher more trouble than hand washing.

I've been hand washing all my life, dishes for two take me under ten
minutes to wash, dry, and put away.

No dishpan hands here!


Rubber gloves!

If I didn't have a self-cleaning oven I would never bake anything
messy. let alone any thing roasted that spattered. If I didn't have a
dishwasher, I probablay wouldn't cook at all. I detest cleanup. We
have a very good dishwasher and I'm OCDC about loading it. It even
removes anything that may have burned on



I have a Bosch self clean oven but I don't use that feature any more.
The oven was badly designed and I don't think the cooling fan for the
electronics can handle the very high temperature. I'd like to replace it
but that would require a certain amount of re-modelling and I'm not sure
it's worth it. When I sell my house to downsize, it will either be
demolished or, more likely, jacked up and carted off to some rural
property before the new owner builds a mansion.
