Burn out the oven - remove odors


Especially new ovens initially smell very unpleasant. The smell often does not go away even with the thorough cleaning with vinegar and gets worse when the stove is heated. Then it is recommended to burn out the oven. But that does not mean a real fire. We will show you exactly how to burn out the oven.

Burn out an oven step by step

  • vinegar
  • water
  • microfiber cloth

1. Clean

The first remedy for household odors is always vinegar. Therefore, first clean each new oven with vinegar. A microfibre cloth prevents you from introducing too much moisture into the oven, which could later cause condensation due to condensation. After cleaning the vinegar, rinse the cloth with clean water and wipe the oven thoroughly again.

Do not use normal household cleaners for this pre-cleaning, as the residues could be burnt in with.

2. Heating up

To burn, the oven is set to at least 200 degrees. This temperature should be kept for about 30 to 60 minutes. If the oven has circulating air, it should first be switched off.

3. Cool slowly

If the stove has been heated for a long time, you can switch on the convection air and heat off. Then they open the door of the oven only a crack. You can put a wooden spoon or the like in the top of the door so that it stays that way. If possible, let the circulating air run for a while.

4. Clean up

After complete cooling, the oven is again wiped with a dilute vinegar solution. Leave the door of the oven open for a few more days to remove the remaining odors. If the oven still smells, you can repeat the process again.

Tips & Tricks

There are many special cleaners that promise to remove the annoying odors from an oven. But often put these cleaners or baking oven endos with their chemical smell on the food. These can then taste like soap or lavender, for example. You should keep your fingers off all chemical substances if you already have problems with the smell in the oven. Better is the gentle cleansing with vinegar.
