How to Clean a Bertazzoni Oven:

1. Activate Pyrolytic Cleaning:

Take advantage of the pyrolytic self-cleaning function to burn grime, turning it into ash. This makes the rest of the clean-up a breeze. This function is only available on some Bertazzoni models - so do check if your Bertazzoni model has this capability.

2. Damp Cloth Cleaning

After pyrolytic cleaning, use a damp cloth with neutral cleaning products to wipe the interior. Avoid abrasive scrubbers to prevent scratches.

3. Warm Cleaning

For easier cleaning, tackle the oven while it's still warm (not hot) after use, preventing hardened dirt that complicates the cleaning process.

4. Grill Cleaning:

Soak oven grills in hot, soapy water to loosen ash and grime. Use a dish sponge to scrub them effectively, leaving you with shiny grills.

5. Baking Soda:

Use a mixture of baking soda and water to tackle stubborn gunk on your oven walls. Leave the mixture on for 20-30 minutes then remove (without scrubbing too hard).
