Bought this yesterday and I now have an oven which looks brand new! Painted it onto the cold oven as instructed, wiped gel off after a few hours and NO marks left. This product is simply amazing!

Works a treat”
Simply the best oven cleaner I have come across. No nasty smells, no fuss. The brush that comes with to product is more than up to the task and all you do is paint the stuff on, wait a while, mop up the goo with some kitchen paper and then wipe with a damp cloth. Do wear the gloves that are supplied, at all times. I managed to get some on my arm without realising and it caused some irritation. Cleans everything up nicely...if you want to do your racks, just put them on some newspaper on the kitchen counter and paint away. There is enough in the bottle for about three cleans of a double oven.

why did i wait so long?”
I bought the oven mate cleaning gel a while ago but as cleaning the oven is one of my least favourite jobs it remained in the cupboard. When I decided to try it out how surprisingly easy it was. My oven was very dirty which meant it didn't all come off in one go. But the ease at which the majority of the dirt came off means I won't leave it as long before I clean it again. Also I might leave the gel on for longer too. It's good that the pack includes a pair of gloves. I would recommend you have extra gloves at hand to change into especially if you leave the gel on for a while. Great product!

Wish I bought this earlier!”
by Mrs Said
It would have saved me hours of scrubbing! This removed burnt/ baked on apple pie juice residue (we used the oven SEVERAL times without cleaning the spill first.) I tried a cleaner recommended by the manufacturer and it took 3 hours of spraying and scrubbing and an awful smell and all it shifted was the top layer. I brushed this on and in an hour EVERYTHING was gone. I took photos to share with family and friends because I was sure no one would believe me! It has no acrid smell, wipes off like a dream and is so easy to apply. I also needed much less than the bottle said I did so it will last!

Purchased this a whole back now in store, as it was recommended to me by a friend. Well I can not express how utterly amazing it is!!!! I have a large combination microwave oven. I use it to cook very thing from roast chicken to heating up soup, so it gets very messy! I just paint it with this solution, leave it a while then wipe and all the grease just comes away!!!! Also great for baking trays etc. Just be very careful you don't splash it in your eye as it is soo painful!

I use this exclusively to clean my gas hob and oven. It's great, works just as it says and without smells or sprays which I always feel concerned I will be breathing in.

I'm not surprised there are so many 5* ratings with this product. It's easy to use although a little time consuming without any effort. My oven is just like new... really. I opened all the windows for ventilation but I needn't have done because there was no smell at all. You need to use lots of kitchen roll to wipe off the jell & melted grease once it's activated but what a difference. It's a bit expensive but well worth it, don't let the price put you off. Thank you Lakeland.

Very good indeed, but job is unfinished....”
Impressed with the good reviews for this product, I purchased one and tried it out yesterday. It was great, and the lack of acrid fumes is a big bonus. I also appreciated the gloves and paintbrush. Thanks for a splendid product.

A Lakeland assistant suggested this cleaner as nothing I had tried would clean my glass oven doors. I left this on overnight, and was astonished at how sparkling clean they were after a wipe down. I highly recommend this product, just amazing!

This really does work,after years of scrubbing & rubbing I have found a product that is excellent. My oven & grill are now really clean, I also like this product as there is no acrid smell. Yes I would recommend this product.

This is easy to apply, sticks to the oven roof and wipes away the muck very easily. As stated by others, plenty of kitchen roll helps with lifting the product. Oven cleaning becomes a pleasure and occurs more frequently with Oven Mate as there is no smell and no scrubbing. Well done Lakeland for this fantastic product.

Thank you Lakeland!”
I was sceptical about trying this product, not really believing its claims. But wow! It has made a mundane, difficult chore simple. No more scrubbing with a wire brush, this product gives excellent results every time. Make sure you wear gloves though....it does irritate the skin!

What A Wonder”
by Mrs Isherwood
I have never found anything as good as this it does the hard work for you. It is so easy to use and there is absolutely no smell. Thank you Lakeland for being so helpful my oven has never looked as good as this except when it was new.

A Maz Ing******”
Dear Lakelands, I had to write a review, as I am so amazed at Oven Mate, I have just moved into a new house and the oven, well, lets say, had been neglected. I was thinking that after all the expense of moving in I was going to have to buy a new one it was that bad. A friend of mine recommended I try Oven Mate, I was a bit sceptical, but after reading all of the glowing reviews I thought I would give it a try. Well, I am just amazed, the oven looks like brand new, I am so impressed, its saved me hundreds of pounds and no need for a new oven. Love , love , love it..

Other oven cleaners work better. I shall not be in a hurry to buy this again. Surely no one wants to have a second application. There is no need for a bag, no gloves, we all have such things, what we want is a good cleaner

A nasty job completed”
by Joan Rusling
Just used this for the first time this morning - excellent. Applied it to a particularly horrible oven and just wiped off, 2 hours later. Just reapplied to one or two baked on areas for an ultra clean today as had not been cleaned since we moved into our house last August. Will be using again and would recommend.

Does a perfect job while I go shopping!”
by Miss Copsey
I HATE my oven and it hates me - especially when it comes to cleaning. It's a job a put off until I 'really' have to do it. I just have to paint this amazing gel on - go out shopping for a few hours (that helps ease the thought of what's going on inside the oven) and when I return, just wipe the gel off! Magic! Love this product!

This is an excellent product. I have tried many oven cleaners, but this far exceeds anything I have tried previously. I like the fact that it is quick, easy to use and odourless. Thoroughly recommended.

Oven cleaning Gel”
This product is simply the most efficient and easy to use oven cleaner on the market. I was sceptical when i read how good it was but i have had to eat my words. It is all it says on the box and some. Brilliant!

Not as effective as previous uses”
by Mrs Suzanne Raynel
I have purchased Oven Mate a number of times throughout the years, but this time it seemed a lot less effective. My oven is only 8 months old, and wasn't particularly dirty - I was just giving it a quick refresh, but even after 6 hours the grills did not become clean. I have now purchased a competitors brand (slightly more acrid but I can live with that) we'll see how that goes. Didn't appreciate double the expense!
