"How do I remove baked on tin foil from the bottom of myI've hunted on the web and found lots of ideas for removing baked on food from pots and pans and general tips on how to clean the oven without using harsh chemicals. But this question doesn't seem to pop up anywhere although I know it can happen.
electric oven. My son lined the botton of the oven to keep it clean and now the tin foil will not come off the bottom. He wants to buy a new enamel bottom to this new stove. Help!"
My only idea would be to put some water, vinegar, ammonia or baking soda in a pan in the oven on low heat just to steam things up a bit. Then I'd use a plastic scraper GENTLY to try to peel off the foil.
So if anyone out there can help with this dilemma, please share in the comments.
Here's an update for another suggestion to remove stuck on tin foil
I found it here after an extensive Google search came up with relatively few suggestions.
"I called Sears and this is what they said to do:
BE CAREFUL, remove as much of the foil as possible Turn oven on to 200 lay an old wet bath towel on top. Use a plastic spatular to remove the foil.
They said it will take some time to remove the foil, in some cases days, and that you can still use the oven but DO NOT use the self cleaning untill all the foil is removed."
Please email me any of your questions, and if I don't have the answer, I'll certainly try find it for you.
