Oven Pride Review – Cleaning my Barbeque for Summer

Due to our oven breaking and subsequently being replaced by a new one, we decided to use the Oven Pride Oven Cleaner we were given to review, on our poor, neglected barbeque.

The inside of our barbeque was very dirty and in need of a good clean before our summer barbeques could start.

How to Use Oven Pride’s Oven Cleaner on the Barbeque: Cleaning the Metal Grills

I read the instructions on the bottle very carefully, due to the liquid being corrosive.  I made sure that I wore the blue gloves from the Oven Pride box all the time.  After placing  the metal grills inside the large plastic bags, I put about half of the solution from the bottle in the bag too.  I sealed the bag carefully, whilst trying to squeeze out most of the air inside.  The bag with the metal grill and solution in was turned over every two hours or so.

As it was a lovely day, I did all of this outside to avoid the fumes from the solution.  I left it out there as long as I could.

Cleaning the  Barbeque

I poured the other half of the solution into the base of the barbeque, leaving it for about four hours before wiping it off with a sponge scourer and some soapy water.

It did not take much effort to wipe away the grease and dirt from inside the barbeque.  I also removed the grills from the bag, very carefully, disposing of the bag immediately.  They were given a wipe with the scourer too.  I was surprised how easy it was to use.

The Results and Overall Verdict

I was very pleased with the end result.  My barbeque was very shiny  as well as being extremely clean.  Even though I did not use the product as it was intended (for ovens), I was still very happy with how clean our barbeque was after using Oven Pride.

We were so happy with it that we decided to have a barbeque and invite some of my family round.  We enjoyed Barbeque Beef Brisket, Garlic Chicken Kebabs and our Salt and Pepper Beef Burgers for our first barbeque this summer.
