Some of the ovens in our built-in range are self-cleaning, coming with our pyrolytic function. This helpful technology helps you spend less time scrubbing your oven clean. At the touch of a button, the pyrolytic self-cleaning function heats the oven up to a super-hot 480°C, turning dirt to dust, so that all that’s left to do is wipe the dirt away with a cloth. From time to time, you will need to clean your pyrolytic oven, so we’ve put together this handy how-to guide to show you how to clean it.
