How Does Frigidaire Steam Cleaning Oven Work?
The steam clean feature in a Frigidaire oven uses steam to loosen up the dirt in an oven. Water is poured on the oven floor then the oven is set to run the steam clean cycle. The oven heat up the water till it starts to boil. While it boils, the steam from the water loosens up the dirt in the oven.
Frigidaire Oven Steam Clean vs Self Clean
Below, we talk about the pros and cons of the steam clean feature and the self clean feature.
The self clean feature is very effective for a heavily soiled oven and requires very little work. However, during the self clean cycle, the oven heats up to very high temperatures. The oven gets so hot that any one who touches it will get burned. This is not safe if you have kids around.
The oven also produces fumes during the cycle which are not safe to inhale. When you go back to using your oven after the self clean cycle, you may notice that it won’t turn on. This is because the very high temperature could cause the thermal fuse to burn out. So, even though the self clean cycle is the easiest way to clean an oven, it is also one of the most dangerous ways.
The steam clean feature is a lot more friendly than the self clean feature but not anywhere as effective. Even though the steam clean feature is Eco friendly, it won’t get rid of any heavy spillovers. If your oven is very dirty and hasn’t been cleaned in a while, the steam clean feature won’t actually do anything to it. But if your oven is very lightly soiled, the steam clean feature will make it easy for you to wipe off the food bits.
