Hey, I didn’t read all the posts but looked at a couple of the other replies and I just wanted to mention – with my stove, it’s ceramic so I had put some tin foil down there to protect (Because I’m lazy and didnt want to clean it!) and the fix it man (we had serious issues with our oven when brand new) said that with cermaic ovens that will fuse to the base and ruin your oven.
Also, I saw a fb or something post a little while back mix some baking soda with water to make a pretty thick paste then add some vinegar. put it on your burned spots, I did this then let it sit for like half hour. I Then poured more vinegar on it and i turned the oven on to 350, just til it hit temp and then turned it off ( I would maybe only make it 300 next time, smoked a little) then it was super simple to wipe clean. Spray with water, wipe, repeat. Just to make sure its all out. Worked amazingly, so easy to wipe off. And no poison!
Edited to say: Let it cool completely or at least almost completely before you stick your arm in there, never know

It’s been a couple of years since I last cleaned the oven, but my SO may have done so while I wasn’t looking. I’ve found the baking soda vinegar mixture to be pretty effective. Regarding those who are putting a sheet of foil at the bottom of the oven, how do you keep the top and sides clean? If you’re baking a turkey, chicken, fish, or anything that contains oil uncovered, the rest of the oven also gets splattered.

Mine is self cleaning, and I do it every week or 2. I like it spotless in there, lol.
