How to clean a pyrolytic oven?

Progressive appliances are user-programmed and fully automated. ASKO pyrolytic cleaning is where the oven takes over completely while you relax. Pyrolytic oven cleaning is an occasional or scheduled maintenance program that ensures your appliance always looks and functions its best.

Electric ovens facilitate automated programming for cleaning without the chef having to lift a finger. The clean cycle is complete in 1.5-2 hours, and when the oven has safely cooled a soft cloth can be used to brush away any residual ash. As with all ASKO appliances, the exterior is also easily cleaned and maintained for complete kitchen style. 

What are the features of a Pyrolytic Oven?

Pyrolytic ovens incinerate hard-to-remove food scraps and spills on the oven walls. Using temperatures close to 500ºC, the pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle lasts for 1.5-2 hours, while the oven door remains securely locked and incredibly cool.

· Pyrolytic Electric Ovens incinerate grime and fat stuck on the oven cavity. Built-in or wall mounted, ASKO pyrolytic electric ovens are among the best available, boasting an attractive, minimalist exterior that conceals tremendous cooking and cleaning power.

· Clean cycle temperatures of 500ºC means an ASKO Pyrolytic Oven virtually cleans itself. Cleaning includes advanced design oven trays purpose-manufactured for pyrolytic cleaning. Simply wipe away any residue and the job is done. An ASKO pyrolytic oven is always a showpiece.

· Single/Double door choices are pyrolytic oven essentials, with ASKOs ‘quadruple glazed door’, including a reflective coating between each layer of glass, keeping the oven, the kitchen and the chef cool even during intense cooking. The oven door automatically locks for the duration of pyrolytic cleaning, in safety-first ASKO style.

· Multifunction makes sense when appliance manufacturers and developers utilise the full capacity of electric oven features. Electricity equals heat that is used by industry-leading ASKO pyrolytic ovens for multifunctional convenience. Benefits include zero scrubbing, scouring or harsh chemicals.
