Can you use The Pink Stuff on an oven door?
Luckily, Mrs Hinch fans were on hand to share their top oven door glass cleaning tips. The majority of cleaning fans suggested using Pink Stuff paste to remove all signs of grime. The paste is extremely versatile and can be used to remove grease, grime, stains and dirt from several surfaces and appliances.
Materials expand and contract when exposed to contrasting heats. Placing a cold dish on a hot oven door may cause the glass to contract and expand rapidly, leading to weakness or damage.
Don't forget to thoroughly rinse any areas cleaned with The Pink Stuff. WARNING: Using an abrasive cleaner on oven glass can cause tiny scratches, and may weaken the glass. Some users have had their oven glass shatter after using The Pink Stuff.
Abrasive cleaners can damage certain surfaces. The Pink Stuff could scratch the shiny finishes of stainless steel kitchen appliances, plated metals, enamel, and finished flooring. “Avoid using it on anything that is delicate or anything that can be easily scored or scratched,” Dickerson says.
Our cleaning expert used a scoop of the paste on a cloth or sponge to clean each of the dirty surfaces in our tests, leaving it to work for about 10 minutes on the dirtier surfaces like the oven door and inside of the oven.

Do I need to let The Pink Stuff sit?
“You want a cleaner to really stick on the surface so the soap can do its thing,” Pleshek said. “There's no cleaner I've ever found that you can spray on a surface and simply wipe the dirt away. That's not realistic. You've got to give it time to let it do its thing to loosen the dirt and grime.”
Make sure to rinse well as it does leave a powdery residue behind. Our testers were really impressed by how well it brought life back into dull, stained tiles and grout in the kitchen and got white trainers looking white again!
The continual heating and cooling of the stress fracture can cause it to become larger and larger until it eventually weakens the glass. It can take years before the glass shatters, usually long after any appliance warranty will cover the breakage.
Most often, shattering will occur as a result of fluctuations in temperature. For example, if it's cold outside and a heat vent is located very close to the glass door pane itself, the sudden heating of the glass could cause the pane to expand quickly, resulting in a crack that leads to shattering.
However, high heat (>300°F) and excessive thermal variations can cause glass to shatter or break. Glass is a poor thermal conductor and rapid changes in temperature (roughly 60°F and greater) may create stress fractures in the glass that may eventually crack.
If the glass on the outside of your oven is cracked, this means heat can escape. However, it is possible to replace the glass, rather than replace the whole door. For this repair, you will not only need a replacement glass panel for your oven door, but double stick tape to apply it.
Oven Door Repair Cost
Repairing an oven door costs between $100 to $250. Hinges and locks are the most inexpensive repairs, while replacing a broken latch will fall on the higher end. These repairs are essential, as a door that doesn't properly close can significantly impact your oven's efficiency.
The best cleaner for glass oven doors is a mixture of items you already have in your pantry: baking soda and vinegar. "It's a great non-toxic alternative to harsh chemical cleaners," Burkey says. If there is built-up grease and grime on the glass, sprinkle some baking soda on the affected areas.
Sadler recommends mixing a paste of baking soda and water, then smearing it on in a thick layer and leaving it for 20 minutes to work on softening the deposits. Scrape off the softened crud with a plastic scraper, and wipe the glass down with white vinegar to neutralize any remaining baking soda.
