  • Well since you didn't clean it right away when you were suppose to...just kidding

    Yes now it is caked on I would just use some liquid dish soap and water and put it directly on the burnt part and let it sit and soak make a small puddle on it. It just needs time to loosen up. I would recommend "Dawn" that takes out grease pretty good. Then later you can go back with a rag and wipe it clean I am sure it wasn't that much of a mess if so use more and wait. And you won't have to worry about any smell. GL

  • I use the spray on oven cleaner I just spray it on leave it on over night and it wipes right off in the morning. Just rinse it well. Then I run the oven empty to burn off anything thats left, but it usually is not bad at all.
