Self Cleaning ranges
use high heat to burn off spills and splatters in the oven cavity so you don't have to break out the cleaner and sponge yourself. Depending how much you cook, you only need to run the cycle once or twice a year. Some ranges
have features that show a countdown display of the time left in the self-clean cycle, while others have an automatic safety lock that prevents the door from being opened until the oven has cooled.
