Customer Question
I have a 48"...

I have a 48" DCS range/over - 12" proof oven on one side and 27" self-cleaning oven on the other side. I baked in the 12" oven and have build-up that needs to be cleaned. The self-clean side cleans beautifully. What can I use on the proof oven?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is 23 years old, make is DCS not sure of model number Have manual for cleaning, but doesn't say how to clean burnt on mess in proof oven

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes I was

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Scrape everything out you can with a razor blade scraper...then Baking Soda in a paste form will work just do not get it in the cracks or on the gasket. Let it sit and wipe it down. You can also use COMET in a paste to clean it the same way. It works really good.
