I have used these for ages (I buy replacements every 4 or even 5 years). Since using I have not suffered from burn marks and highly recommend. Yes, they eventually start to show signs off age, but I bet your oven does too!

In agreement with other reviewers, namely they do the job well but are impossible to clean. Obvious (and easiest) solution is to make them in black or dark brown (who thought light grey was practical?). Mine aren't yet falling apart, but it won't be long before they do. Yes, they are extremely expensive for 2 strips of silicone, which will put many customers off replacing them (including me). So come on Lakeland, resolve this issue by offering a decent loyalty discount on a replacement set of oven shelf guards for customers going into a store with their old, dirty or falling apart set!
Thanks for the feedback and taking the time to speak to me on the phone. I'm happy to pass your comments on to our buying team.

These do the job they are meant to do, can't fault them for that but they just won't come clean no matter what I try and now look so disgusting I have dispensed with them.
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry you're having difficulties cleaning the guards. We'll be in touch shortly to help.

A great idea for preventing burns. I've never tried cleaning them as I'm not bothered by marks on them. But I am disappointed that they've started to split. I only use the oven a couple of times a month, and I thought silicone lasted for ever!
Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry to hear of your disappointment and we'll be in touch shortly.

I can't do without these, I was forever burning my arm on oven shelves but no more! I did buy a cheap version of these but don't be fooled, cheap ones are rubbish and a waste of money.

I have noticed that the same comments about this product have been made since March 2008. I agree that the guards do their job well, and also that they look unsightly after quite a short time. I am about to buy my fourth set, last ones have, as all the others, started to disintegrate as well as being badly marked. The idea of them is excellent, but the price doesn't reflect the need to replace them at regular intervals. (Depending on oven usage!) Maybe time to go back to the drawing board? Difficult to rate-- hence 3 stars.
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that the guards become dirty over time and will be in touch shortly to help.

I'm just about to replace mine after 4 years. I use my oven every day and have not burnt myself once since getting these. An excellent product I recommend to everyone. Yes they do get a little burnt looking but rather them than me ! Who cares what the inside of the oven looks like, it is a small price to be free of the pain of oven burns. Would highly recommend for anyone frail and for parents teaching children to cook safely.

I can certainly say that these items work and help stop nasty burns. However I am really disappointed in the fact that I simply cannot get them clean. They are covered in black splashes (presumably fat) and despite soaking in household soda, using a stiff brush, trying the dishwasher and many varied attempts, I simply cannot get them clean. The fact that they are ridged doesn't help, but Lakeland why oh why did you not ask for them to be made in BLACK rather than grey??!!
Thanks for your feedback on the oven shelf guards. We'll certainly pass your suggestion about making them in black to our buying team.

I think these are great and the fact that they are difficult to clean is the trade off for not burning your arms! Mine have started to spit now though, after a couple of years occasional use, which is disappointing.
Thanks for placing your review and for taking the time to chat on the phone. I'm glad we were able to help

I am another disappointed with these guards. They do the job well enough but the ridged design together with the nature of the material does make them impossible to clean. I have reluctantly had to discard them long before the end of their practical life as they look disgusting.
I'm sorry that you'd been disappointed with the oven shelf guards. I've passed your comments to the buying team and will be in touch shortly.

These are wonderful. Since I fitted them in the oven I have had no more stripy burns up my arms, so nobody asks "what happened" and I can wear sleeveless clothes without feeling I'm displaying war-wounds.

I wish I had read the reviews before I allowed(!!) my wife to purchase these guards. As a former engineer I would have realised that to put an item with so many open surfaces (and ridged) in an environment that generates grease, would present serious cleaning problems. Compound this with the use of a non-smooth silicone material and you have a product not fit for purpose. I never thought I would have such strong adverse views about a Lakeland product, as our kitchen bears witness to the not inconsiderable visits to your shops and website so this review is posted with an element of regret.
The design allows them to be easily removed for cleaning in either a dishwasher or hot soapy water. I'm sorry that you'd been disappointed with them, I'll be in touch shortly.

I am replacing a set of these after five plus years (I can't remember how long) as they are beginning to split - so I must be happy with them! They are impossible to clean and do look dirty, but that is a small price to pay for preventing all the accidental burns to hands and wrists I used to suffer when using the oven.

Agree these are impossible to clean so that they look new, BUT they do stop you burning yourself on the oven shelf. I replace when they get beyond saving.

I bought these shelf guards ages ago and really should have written a review before now to advise of my experiences. I agree with many of the other reviewers.......nightmare to clean. I have recently had them soaking in the OvenMate oven gel for TWO days and have now just decided to throw them away. Not worth the effort or the money is they make a clean oven look dirty.
Thankyou for your feedback. We're sorry that you've had a disappointment with the oven shelf guards. Our customer services team will contact you to help.

When they first arrived I was pleased with them. However, like others here I found them impossible to clean, then in November, when less than 10 months old, I noticed that they were beginning to crack. The cracking got worse and worse. Today, I have just chucked them in the bin as chunks are falling off and if one landed in a baked dish it could cause major problems if accidentally swallowed. I'm giving this a 2* based on overall performance, had they not fallen apart so soon I would give a 5*
We'll contact you about the oven shelf guards, and we're sorry that they deteriorated over time. Thankyou for your feedback.

I have just ordered a new set of these as the ones I previously purchased fell apart and like a previous reviewer I found them impossible to clean.

Great product but impossible to clean. Having just used Oven Mate, the ultimate oven cleaning kit which is fantastic, I am so disappointed with the oven shelf guards. No amount of cleaning will get them clean. I have now removed the shelf guards as they spoil the oven. Christine
I'm sorry you've had such difficulties with the oven shelf guards. We'll be in touch shortly to put things right for you.

These are an excellent idea my only complaint being that now they are about 1 year old many of the "teeth" which grip over the oven shelf have broken off and I have had to remove it from one shelf. I was hoping they would last longer ?
It's always disappointing to hear that one of our products has not been up to our usual standards. I'll be in touch about the oven shelf guards, please accept my apologies.
If you’re not delighted with your purchase or our service, or find the same product elsewhere for less, please tell us so that we can put it right.
