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.

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.

WOW!!! What can I say, this has to be the easiest oven cleaner I have ever used, extremely efficient and quick, will use again and tell all my friends about it, makes cleaning the oven enjoyable (almost), worth at least 10 stars

Does what it says!”
Just ordered another one as the first one exceeded expectations. We have a pyrolytic oven but it doesn't clean the grill pan and the shelves so they need to be cleaned separately. Literally apply and wipe off and rinse. My kind of cleaning!

amazing oven cleaner”
I was sceptical on three fronts- the claim it wouldn't smell, that it needed no scrubbing, and that it would work.Well, no smell, just a little effort using foil to scrub off stuff that it a bit stuck (I only waited three hours on long term burnt on gunge) and it really removed stuff I had tried hard to remove several times before. Well worth having.

Does the job but very messy!”
Our oven hasn’t ever been cleaned, so there was 'quite' a build up of cack. I used this overnight & left for 12ish hours in total. The gel was a little tricky to paint with the quite small brush provided, however it doesn’t help that our oven has black enamel! The tiny toothbrush end was pretty pointless. When removing the gel & its remains, I have to say I did need to do a lot of scrubbing & washing & used an insane amount of kitchen roll. However, though still not completely crust free, the oven does now have a shine to it & is much improved from before!

Works great on oven doors”
Used this product on my oven and it does work, but it really excelled on my oven door which was fairly dreadful- completely lifted all the burnt on grease.

Magical Oven Cleaner”
by Lynda Gaskin
I have tried many oven cleaning products over the years, I have even paid for a professional to clean my oven much to my husbands dismay! so I challenged him to do a better job and found him this oven mate cleaning gel to try. Result.......he said he dosen't know why I made such a fuss about cleaning the oven, the gel made a tedious job so easy.....so I am doubaly pleased to have found a very efficient product and a husband willing to do the job!!!!!

This is undoubtedly the best oven cleaner and their excellent new advice - to remove the solution and dissolved gunge from the oven with dry kitchen paper - makes it even better. I have just one problem with Oven Mate : I now have a large collection of nice blue brushes that seem too good to throw away. Does anyone know of a use for them?

Best Oven Cleaner Ever”
by Mrs Hope
Visited Shrewsbury store and purchased this item today. Laughed when the assistant said we would need sun glasses. She was not wrong. We were going to but a new cooker but this was not a cheap option. I have no need to get a new cooker as my old one looks like new. I have had this for over 5 years and it has never looked so clean. I have used every single product on the market but this outshines them all. It does not smell and requires no scrubbing. I have two ovens and still have loads left. It also rinses away easily and does not run every where. Brilliant

This is a wonderful product, really does the job and no nasty odours

Ashamedly, I have to confess that I have not cleaned my oven for about five years. I have had some Oven Mate under the sink for around four years and thought I would give it a go before calling in the professionals, however, Oven Mate to the rescue. I have painted it on this afternoon, left it for two hours and was completely gobsmacked to find it has practically cleaned the oven back to new. I need to redo a couple of bits which I missed plus the bits I couldn't quite reach first time around. No professional required and seriously, my burnt on bits had burnt on bits. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This review is for an older version of this product
excellent product that does the job!”
Left this on overnight to get rid of some tricky stains, I think I used too much as then removing it was a very messy job! Got 90% of the stains off my oven on the first attempt. With another less heavy handed application, it should be like brand new again! Well pleased, there's NO smell which is much needed as my oven is so small. This has made oven cleaning a pleasure, which I never thought I would ever say!!
