If you have ever thought what to give someone as a quirky 'moving in' present. This will be your best bet, they will love and remember you for ever. I often get a call from our children, when they are just about to move out or have just moved into a new flat,"Coffee Mum, Oh and could you...." It really is superb. I have cleaned, with one or two applications so of the most horrible ovens I have ever seen. Instead of it being an absolute nightmare, it really has been effortless and more importantly, fume free! My own onven is as clean as the day it was purchased, and I am a baker.

Best oven cleaner ever!”
by Nicole Rogers
This product is AMAZING. The dirt literally wipes off and there really is no smell. I can't praise this product enough. Brilliant.

...with anything else? I have just painted my crusty convection oven dish with this, gone out and walked the dog, sat down with a cuppa and then ambled back into the kitchen and washed it off. Why can't all house work be this easy? No smell, no hard graft. There is NOTHING on the market that even comes close. Thank you Lakeland

I am by nature a skeptic, I purchased this on the back of the great reviews it had. I doubted it would live up to expectation. How wrong I was, this is brilliant, after leaving it on for a couple of hours, there was a proper WOW moment when I wiped off 6 months of cooking dirt with a piece of kitchen roll. There was one area at the bottom of the oven that had a burnt on stain dating back 2 years. I had attacked it with another oven cleaner, scrapers, wire wool etc etc in the past, but had given up on it. This product removed it with no more effort than wiping! Brilliant!

Does exactly what it says”
by Mrs Ann Kurian
Brilliant product. I wish I had heard about this earlier so that I could saved a whole lot of time scrubbing my oven. Excellent product. The small brush that comes along is very handy to use too. Would recommend to everyone I know. Very happy!

DOES THE JOB”
It works really well, you do need a little bit of elbow grease and may have to reapply on stubborn black marks. I left it for 6 hours. I will get my oven professionally cleaned again keep on top of it with this.

I bought this oven cleaner years ago, and have recommended it to everyone who 'moans' about the chore of cleaning the oven! put it on in the evening, and simply wipe out the next day .... I clean my oven more often now using the, 'in the mean time' cleaner, however, its so good and sooo simply, I clean it in the evening and wash out in the morning, how long --- half hour tops, two hours tops for a really bad oven! happy clean oven :0

I'm always rather sceptical about the claims of oven cleaners - and until now have never found one that actually delivers what it promises. This one does. I left it on overnight as it was a VERY dirty oven (!!) and I now have an oven that looks almost new! Thank you Lakeland - this really is a miracle cure!!

This review is for an older version of this product
the only real oven cleaner”
It's the only product from many I have tried that really does what it promises, oven cleaning without elbow grease! To the Lakeland team: please find a way to ship it within Europe - I definitely need a new bottle and it seems that liquids can't be shipped to Cyprus?

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're unable to air freight the Oven Mate Gel and certain other products owing to EU carrier restrictions.
Does exactly what it promises to do!”
This gel is fantastic. I'm not much of a review writer, but would happily endorse this brilliant product. Leave it on a really mucky surface for a good long time, say two hours, and the burned on, greasy, gooey grot just wipes off. 100% excellent!

This is a fantastic product, easy to use and cleans the oven like new. I tried other products which were messy and smelled awful. This product not only cleans brilliantly but there is no after smell. I had something burn on the bottom of my oven which I couldn't budge, nor could other products but this product totally removed it and oven looks brand new. Also used it on the shelves, they came out sparkling. Recommend it to anyone.

i just cannot belive how great this product is, I have been reading reviews for a long time and finally got around to giving the oven a go with Oven Mate , and have to say that is just superb !!! i realised that my oven was pretty bad and so was likely to need more than one application , so was very patient and can say that it was worth the effort as it now looks just like it did when we bought it. Guess it wins its awards for a reason !!

A clean oven”
by Mrs ELSDON
I recently bought this as I had to clean my oven prior ro moving. It had not been cleaned for sometime so I followed the instructions, and left it overnight. I was thrilled with the results - even the glass door came up pristine. The oven looked like new and there was no smell and no mess!! Thankyou Lakeland.

Not as good as it claims”
by Mrs Mencher
The gel does not lift off burnt-on food. It did not work in my new oven after one burnt-on episode.

Wow.... this really works !!!!”
by Mrs Jackson
Having used other oven cleaners in the past, with mixed results, I thought Id give Oven Mate Cleaning Gel a try .... and was amazed by how quick and efficiently it cleaned ( & with no smell ) - After just a few hours, my oven, grill and racks simply wiped clean and now sparkle like new !!!! Well worth the money Lakeland

I bought this after moving into a new house and discovering the oven was in the most horrific state. This stuff is amazing, it may take a few more bottles before the oven is actually clean but nothing else has even touched it!!

Our oven was in a rather embarrassing state. I'd tried a couple of other products which claimed to be able to remove all the grease and grime but was horribly disappointed. We tried Oven Mate for the first time yesterday and the oven is looking fantastic! It hasn't removed everything (there are a few areas where the dirt was really stubborn) but I'll try cleaning those again over the next week or so. Perhaps repeated application will do the job. Brilliant product, only loses a star because it promises to remove "even the most stubborn baked-on fat and oil" and we still have some.

Not bad but not as good as expected”
Had rather expected miracles based on what I'd read. Is good gunk but takes time to cut through serious muck. Gloves provided are too flimsy so used proper style washing-up gloves. Would be easier to tip gunk into dish/paint can and use a one inch paint brush to coat surface. Roof of oven still not properly clean - compounded by being a dark surface. Maybe the in between works well but will have to live in the shed.

I have bought this item .I am on my second bottle and one spare. I cannot image cleaning my oven with anthing else. No smell,no choking and perfectly clean and in such a short time.Using cold oven.
Published 22 Feb 2013
I am clearly doing something wrong- having read all the marvellous reviews I bought some of this to clean my not-very-dirty-at-all oven. I have always used the best selling brand and am a bit obssessive about keeping my oven clean so this was a routine clean and degrease after the heavy use over Christmas. However, I found I had to REALLY SCRUB to get the burn on marks off the racks and the gel was tricky to get into the grill supports. Thought cleaner to use than my usual, and undoutedly less chemical in smell, the end result wasn't nearly as good. Sorry Lakeland.
