Hi if anyone use steam as well as a dip tank what sort do you use please I tried a hand held one on a cold Aga yesterday and it helped to heat up the carbon and grease to remove with paste just wondered what others people use

Hi quite funny you mention steam cleaners i have been out of oven cleaning for some time but looking at reopening on my own. I used to use one from a company called vapourtek was based in devon it had a variable adjuster on the nozzle so only hot steam would come out with minimal water i used to put a scourer on the end and go at it, it definitely made life a lot easier at the time although you couldn't wait to step back outside as you would be sweating ha i never did try it on the glass though that be my next project to try.

Sorry Helen , but i cant see a reason why you would need a steamer? Getting the marks off the inside of an Aga lid can be difficult but the top of an Aga is down to your degreaser and blade.

Not sure if steam clean will work on very dirty and burned ovens and cookers, never tried but I am sceptic will help a lot. maybe on light dirt yes but not on commecial or burnt ones.
