I have a stovetop Cuisinart convection oven, which I am pleased with. I have an ancient kitchen oven, so I use it for practically everything, including greasy stuff that splatters, like broiling chickens. My bad, I didn't clean the ceiling of the oven for a while...and now it has a layer of thick baked on grease/gunk. I'm embarrassed to admit this in public, but it's true.
I tried cleaning it with a sponge but it really doesn't work. I tried a paste of baking soda and water, but that doesn't work either, although perhaps I should try that again with a bit more elbow grease. In any case, does anyone know of a good cleaning solution, or item, for something like this, which will cut the layer of grease/gunk? I think it's a combination of protein and fat that makes it hard to remove. Thanks.
