Outdoor Oven 101

Cleaning the cooking chamber

Attention: Do not allow the oven to build up with stains and grease. It is much harder to clean an oven that has been neglected for a long period of time, and much easier to perform maintenance on a regular basis.

  • Before cleaning the cooking chamber, remove the baking stone and the fire bricks.
  • The cooking chamber should be cleaned periodically with products that are suitable to stainless steel and glass. DO NOT use abrasive products or chemical cleaners, as these could scratch all surfaces and remove the surface protection.
  • Always clean off residue from cleaners and follow by drying the walls entirely with a soft, microfiber cloth.
  • To eliminate the more persistent stains, it is advised to run the oven at its maximum temperature in order to burn off any residue.
  • When the oven has cooled completely it will be necessary to remove the residual dust with a damp sponge.
