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!

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry you found your new bottle of the gel to be less effective. We've checked with our supplier and there has been no change to the get at all. We'll be in touch shortly to help.
Such an easy way to clean the oven-a nice thick gel that rinses off easily, and no horrible fumes. Its not non-toxic, but it doesn't get into my lungs the way other oven cleaners do.

This oven gel is amazing, I've used it for a long time and it's never failed me, however, I ran out recently and brought another make, it was very thin and the things you couldn't use it on was longer than the list of what you could !, I'll stick with the best.

Really great for the oven and the hob - I just wish it was easier to do the oven shelves

Simply the best”
Like a lot of others, I was probably a bit sceptical with yet 'another' oven cleaner that promises to do wonders... so I thought I'd give it a try, I was amazed, the best I've ever had. You can actually see the fat and grease melt. I admit that I will probably have to give my oven another go, but it certainly looks a lot cleaner, and I won't leave it so long next time. It's a job you put off because it's such hard work and they never look any better. But I shall keep up with the oven cleaning in future. A must have.

oven mate cleaning gel”
by Mr lindsay
fantastic product,but you have to leave it on for three hours to do it's work. Only one small niggle it takes an age to spread on the wire shelves. but apart from that it brings your oven back to brand new look

Ovens needing cleaning are easily helped with the Oven mate. Used it on the oven used by tenants as well as home-lent it to a friend, now that's a good recommendation!

I recently purchased this from your New Store in Lakeside. I was very sceptical about this as other brands never do what they say on the tin. Well... This proved me wrong and it is amazing it gets rid of some real stubborn burnt on grease/food with very little effort. Fabulous product and I have been recommending it :o)

It is very good”
I bought this after trying various products from the supermarket, which work quickly very well. I just wished i'd started with this as it is very good. I've had to use several applications on my oven since there's lots of dirt but think the bottle would ordinarily last a long time. The only downsides are that it's clear so it's difficult to keep track of where it, it's applied by brush and whilst it says it's odour free there is something in the air after use. overall it's very effective and my oven has nearly come up as new.

Excellent! Can not recommend it enough!”
This product is pure genius. I have used it on two different ovens - one left in a state by previous occupant - and has left both sparkling. I leave it on as long as I can and easily wipe it away with all the grime. Does take a bit of rinsing to get the gel off the cloth but for ease of removing grease, can't complain! Managed to stretch mine to a few oven cleans as well as the racks. And no nasty smell to deal with. Just one question: bottle says about disposal and taking care to get rid of correctly. Does that mean used bottle can't go in the bin?

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. Oven mate can be disposed of with normal every day waste as long as it is in its original bottle designed to withstand the corrosive effects. The best way of disposing of any residue after cleaning would be to remove the majority of the gel with dry kitchen towel and put directly into the bin. Then repeat with dampened kitchen towel - again the towel should be binned. Finally wipe round with damp sponge or cloth - this can be rinsed down drain.
We hadn't properly cleaned our oven for well over a year and it was very mucky. I stripped out the wire shelves and side racks and used a device for cleaning paint off window to remove some of the thick grease on the oven base. I spread the Oven Mate Gel on the base and sides and left it for about five hours. I coated the wire shelves in the gel and laid them in a large Lakeland oven cleaning tray. It took two goes to get the wire racks sparkling and a tough steady job to get through the burnt on stuff in the oven, BUT IT WORKS! The oven is now clean and shiny. I must clean it more often!

I am very pleased with this oven cleaner. The last time my oven was this clean was after I'd paid a professional company £45 to come and do the job for me! This was much better value. You do need plenty of kitchen roll though to cope with all of the gunk you will remove from the oven. And I've still got half a bottle left!! Very Impressive product

First Time I Have Ever Been Pleased With The Results”
While I always keep the oven cleaned, I could never be entirely happy with the results from all the effort it takes. Especially the end of the oven racks that seem determined to shred the tips of the rubber gloves and still cling onto the grime, so frustrating. So today I tried the Oven Mate and it works! The ends of the shelves are sparkling and the sides of the oven are brown-spot free. My rubber gloves are still in one piece too!

My oven was filthy, but this product turned all that built-up, burnt on, greasy and crusty stuff to absolute mush within 2.5 hours! I couldn't believe it! The liquid is quite thick so you don't need very much, just apply it then leave for recommended time. Later, wipe off with kitchen roll and wipe clean with a sponge or damp cloth. Even my oven racks - I had resigned myself to believing that they were supposed to be brown - came up as good as new! Fab product and good value for money as you get 3+ applications if used as directed. Buy it!

Didn't work for me”
I was disappointed with this product. It just didn't work. I spent ages cleaning the product off and still when I ran the oven afterwards - residue could still be seen on the oven

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the oven mate hasn't worked for you as expected. We'll be in touch shortly to help. It is recommended to leave the gel on longer than the suggested time if the staining is more stubborn.
