Self Cleaning

Postby rebapuck » Tue Jan 28, 2020 11:52 am

It's time to set the timer for my self cleaning oven. Can I stick the cast iron grate for my Weber Q in to be cleaned? I leave my oven grates in.

It might generate allot of smoke. It may also discolor the remaining chrome on the grate.

I have actually heard of people cleaning fouled spark plugs in a self cleaning oven so a grill should be easy, except for the smoke.

I'm going to stalk this post like Jack the Ripper. :frightened: We too have a Q.

These grills are enamel coated? I have seen some descriptions of cleaning enamel coated dutch ovens in a self-cleaning oven. It seems to work.

That said I have some enameled cooking grates on my gas fired kitchen oven that I cleaned with ammonia. It is an easy procedure. Just put the item to be cleaned in a plastic bag and poor in some ammonia. Let it soak overnight or longer. The burned on stuff gets very soft and can be scrubbed off.
It is a bit smelly but it works on most of the dirt. I used it on my bbq grill too.

Self Cleaning

I seem to remember instructions came with my weber that the grates could be cleaned in a self cleaning oven. I don’t recall whether that was the enameled ones or stainless bars.

Heck, my weber runs out above 700, which itself does a pretty fine job of cleaning the grates in the first place. I don’t expect a home oven would get much hotter on self clean.

Aaaand a quick google says self cleaning ovens run at 900+/-. So....
