Out of the Blue

Yesterday I paid the price for having found this article explaining why it is not a good idea to use the self-cleaning feature on your oven because it can actually break the oven, even when used as intended. This lead to me cleaning the oven by hand, which is a messy job, though not nearly as bad as I imagined. There are also a number of articles on the internet suggesting it may not be healthy to breath around an oven in self-cleaning mode, but since my "manual" cleaning relied on a can of nasty Easy-Off oven cleaner, I doubt that I'm ahead on that part of the deal, but at least the oven is clean.

I was wondering how it could be bad for the oven....but after reading the link, it sounds like they're only referring to electric ovens. I remember getting chemical burns from oven cleaner (my fault) when I was younger, so I try to avoid that stuff like the plague.
