DisappointedHave used this product for years. It WAS the best product on the market and wouldn't have been without one in the house but they have CHANGED it! Whereas before I would just spray it on and wipe it off it is now quite watery and doesn't do the job, I appears that the company have watered it down, put it in a larger bottle and doubled the price. Show details

No propellant in new canBought a can of this from Coles. Went to use it a month later and nothing would come out. I can even squeeze the can which should be impossible if there's propellant inside. It's still full and weighs 471g. Show details

Hard job made easy!We have been using the barbeque wipes for a while now and only wished we had found them years ago. They cut into the grease on the plate in minutes and they don't cost the earth to buy or replace.

Brings it up like NewWe have a cast iron stove heater, cooktop and oven that we use throughout winter and it can get a little dull and sad looking when summer comes but this Stove Polish restores it to it's former glory.
It's easy to apply as per instructions and does a great job and even better it's Australian Made we couldn't ask for a better product.

WHY IS THIS BUSINESS STILL TRADINGReally unhappy with the reviews on this business after falling for it too, and then seeing here how many people FOR YEARS have said it is a SCAM! How can they still be doing this to people? Same as other people, no reply to emails about the order and never received. Will be lodging with my bank as a fraudulent transaction. NO STARS.

Rubbish - Don"t bother!!I thought I'd try these to clean the creosote stains from the glass door of my woodheater (Tip for me use seasoned wood next time)
They are useless -$11 something for two from Bunnings.
Dont waste your time buying them.
I shall go back to using ash from my woodheater with water and an old rag.
Trust me this DOES work....

What to look for in an oven or cooktop cleaner

A man using gloves, a cleaning spray, and a sponge to clean the inside of an oven

Ingredients

Oven cleaners are available in either caustic or non-caustic formulas. Caustic formulas are probably the most powerful cleaner you can find - they’re highly effective at removing baked-on mess, but they’re also corrosive and emit toxic fumes, so you’ll need to strictly follow the product’s safety instructions.

Non-caustic cleaners aren’t as tough on mess, but can still be effective. They aren’t as hazardous to use, and are less irritating on the skin.

You can also find oven or cooktop cleaners as concentrated formulas, which are generally more pricey than non-concentrated formulas, but last longer and let you adjust the concentration to suit how heavy duty your cleaning needs to be.

Safety

Consider whether you’ll be using the cleaning product when others - particularly kids or pets - are around. Oven cleaner products in particular can emit toxic fumes and some require you to keep the kitchen well-ventilated while using it. If this is the case, see whether you can feasibly keep the little ones away from the kitchen.

Ease of use

Look for an oven cleaner that’s suitable for all parts of the oven, that acts as both a surface cleaner and an oven rack cleaner. Some oven cleaners come as part of an ‘oven kit’ with gloves and a closure bag, letting you do all the cleaning within the bag. This means minimal mess, and for many, is an easy oven cleaning option.

You should also consider how long a cleaner takes to work. Consult the label to see just what needs to be done. Some cleaners require the oven to be warm for you in order to use them, meaning you’ll need to factor in the time it takes to preheat the oven.

It’s also a good idea to look for a cleaner that offers a streak-free finish, so that you don’t have to go in again with a washcloth afterwards.

Environmental friendliness

If you’re shopping with the planet in mind, then look out for natural ingredients or a biodegradable product. You can also find cleaners with non-plastic, recyclable packaging.

Compatibility

Before purchasing an oven or cooktop cleaner, check whether the cleaner is compatible with the type of appliance you’re using it on. For example, cooktop cleaners are usually designed for particular types of cooktops - some are ceramic or glass cleaners that are more suitable to induction or electric cooktops, while others are designed for use on stainless steel that’s usually found in gas cooktops.

Oven-cleaning tips

  • Before buying an oven cleaner, try using baking soda and vinegar - baking soda lifts stains and vinegar is great for tackling grease. You’ll also likely already have these in your cleaning cupboard.
  • Clean the oven roof last, as dirty cleaning residue might drip down onto the rest of the oven and require a second clean.
  • To make cleaning easier, clean your oven regularly (every 1 to 3 months, depending on how often you use it) so that mess doesn’t bake on so much that it’s almost impossible to remove.
  • Follow the instructions of any oven cleaner you buy to a T - if it says to keep the kitchen well-ventilated, or to wear safety glasses, do so.
