Convection ovens are becoming increasingly popular in home kitchens, but can you use oven cleaner in a convection microwave? The answer is yes, but there are a few things to keep in mind.
First, make sure to read the label on your oven cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. Some oven cleaners may require you to apply the cleaner to a cool oven. If your convection microwave has a self-clean cycle, you may need to use a different setting or cycle time.
Second, be sure to ventilate the area well when using oven cleaner in a convection microwave. Convection microwaves typically have fans that circulate air during cooking, which can spread fumes from the oven cleaner. If you have an exhaust fan, make sure to turn it on while cleaning.
Third, always wipe up any spills immediately and thoroughly. Oven cleaner can damage some surfaces, so it’s important to avoid contact with countertops, floors, or other areas of your kitchen.
With a little care, you can safely use oven cleaner in a convection microwave. Just be sure to follow the instructions on the label and take precautions to ventilate the area and avoid contact with other surfaces.
