How often do you clean your oven?

Ok, I am currently sitting in the house with the self-cleaning oven going.
I HATE the smell cuz it stinks, but I can't leave the house cuz I need to be here in case something goes wrong...don't want the house to burn down!

I know I am lucky that the oven is self-cleaning, but I hate to do it.
Shamefully, I only clean it once a year or so.

Is your oven sef-cleaning?
Whether self-cleaning or not, how often do you clean it?

 Same here, about once a year. I hate how high the temp gets, the burning smell, and I am terrified of burning the house down too. I always make sure dh is here too!

I never have.....

I never spill anything, and keep tin foil down.

Hmmm, I've lived here four years and have not once cleaned it. It was new when we moved in. In all fairness, it gets used maybe once a month...maybe.

Ugh I screwed up and didn't buy a self cleaning. I probably clean it every 3/4 months. I don't know how often I'm supposed to..

Ours is self cleaning.  We don't seem to have any trouble with it, we run it late at night.  Probably once every 4 months.

Every 3 months or so, I don't have a sepf cleaning oven, so I have to do it the old fashioned way.

Even with the self cleaning, I clean it by hand afterwards.

I probably clean it 4 times a year unless something spills.

Once every 3 months. I don't have a self cleaning oven and it sucks.

I don't use the self clean option, can't take the smell. I clean mine myself, once a week.
