As indicated on the label directions, we do not recommend using EASY-OFF® Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner on these types of ovens. Directions must be followed explicitly.
EASY-OFF® Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner is primarily an oven cleaner. We do not recommend using this product on stainless steel cookware since many of the stainless steels today contain a great deal of aluminum..
We do not recommend using this product on aluminum, as it may pit and discolor it. However, it does not penetrate into the metal or remain on the surface after the recommended rinsing instructions have been followed. Utensils and appliances cleaned with EASY-OFF® Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner are completely safe for use in cooking or serving food after they have been thoroughly washed and rinsed in a vinegar and water solution.
We would not recommend it due to the fact that some finishes today are highly polished aluminum which can very easily be mistaken for chrome; therefore, we must put this caution on our label. EASY-OFF® Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner will pit and discolor aluminum.
EASY-OFF® Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner should not be used on stovetops. The recommended product for stovetops is EASY-OFF® Cooktop Cleaner or EASY-OFF® Specialty Kitchen Degreaser
If you are concerned with how well you have rinsed the oven, we recommend wiping it down with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. This will make it look and feel clean; however, when you first use the oven, you may get a little smell as everything left behind evaporates.
Immediately, but you might notice some steam or evaporation. Therefore, we recommend that you heat the oven to 300 degrees for 15 minutes before using. It is best to keep pets (especially birds) out of the room until smoke and fumes dissipate.
This is a caustic product and there is a warning statement on the label which cautions the user to put newspapers on the floor for protection. It is possible that if the problem is treated right away some of the "rust-like" stains will disappear. We recommend a watery paste of Zud® cleanser. Allow the pasty substance to remain on the affected area for 10-15 minutes, then wipe gently with paper towels to remove all residue. If neither product is immediately available, paper towels saturated with water may aid in removing the stain. Also, allow the wet towels to remain on the area for the same amount of time, then rinse continually for several applications.
