Prolytic ovens are sometimes called self cleaning ovens. They use a very high temperature to incinerate residual food inside the oven leaving a fine ash when finished. The ash is simply wiped away with a damp cloth without the need for chemical oven cleaners and harsh scrubbing. They are very well insulated which makes them more efficient and the kitchen cooler!
Pyrolytic cleaning is a self-cleaning method that heats the oven to extremely high temperatures typically around 500°C, turning food residues into ash that can be easily wiped away. It is highly effective at removing stubborn stains and grease but consumes more energy and can produce strong odors during the cleaning cycle.
Steam-assisted cleaning, on the other hand, uses water and steam to soften and loosen stains and grease, making them easier to wipe away. This method is gentler on the oven and consumes less energy compared to pyrolytic cleaning. It also doesn't produce strong odors during the cleaning process.
Both cleaning methods have their advantages and disadvantages, and the choice between them depends on individual preferences regarding cleaning effectiveness, energy consumption, and convenience.
