The way we were
Last reviewed: May 2011
Dirty, undignified, and hard on the back. That's how we described oven cleaning in 1980. Brush-on pastes were miserable to
use and were not very effective. Aerosols did the job but could burn skin and eyes. Today's self-cleaning ovens deliver excellent
results with the push of a button and zero elbow grease, your dignity intact.
