Whether it's too many frozen pizzas or bacon grease that seems to get everywhere, the aftermath of a meal cooked in the oven is never a pleasant surprise.
Although a quick and easy meal is almost always a good idea, the thought of having to clean all of the muck it leaves behind might be enough to make you shut the oven door and save it for another day.
If your oven is in need of a major cleaning, we found a product that will do most of the work for you. And at just $5 (depending on the retailer), it might be one of the most affordable.
To use the Easy-Off Professional Oven Cleaner, you simply spray the affected areas and let the foaming formula soak as it breaks down grease and scum. After the product soaks in (for spot cleaning, this step can take as little as 30 seconds), you can take a sponge and simply wipe away the mess. Then you'll be left with a sparkling clean oven, without all of the nauseating fumes.
If you're struggling to remember the last time you cleaned your oven and have some years-long stains to take care of, one reviewer stated that's not a problem with this product — they hadn't cleaned their oven for nearly six years before trying Easy-Off.
"I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been ~six years since my last oven cleaning ... After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word," they wrote.
The product boasts over 17,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, so other customers are clearly loving their results as well.
"This product performs MIRACLES!" another shopper wrote. "My oven was in need of some major TLC when I moved in. I sprayed it in my oven generously at night and the next day after work, all of the grease wiped off super easily. No excuses for a dirty oven anymore!"
Shop TODAY photo editor Becca Delman also tried the cleaner and was super impressed with how easily it removed the dirt from her appliance. "As a busy mom, I don't have hours to spare to scrub down my oven, so I appreciated how easy this product made the cleaning process. I was able to spray my oven down and come back when I was ready to wipe it clean. And the formula worked faster than I expected."
It's sometimes daunting just to prepare a meal, but cleaning doesn't always have to be such a chore. The Easy-Off cleaner takes away the need to endlessly scrub at oven grime, so that you can clean your appliance in minutes, without the tiresome elbow grease.
