  • I can't stand the smell in the house. I have to leave. Mine is on an automatic shuts itself off. I come back at the time it should be done to check that it turned off okay. Then I open windows and leave again

  • I can't stand the smell either but I wasn't willing to leave - the oven gets well over 500 degrees for a LONG time. My oven is never hot to the touch when I'm using it but when it was cleaning - OH BOY! Was the surface hot!

    I just went outside to avoid the smell.
