Do I need to preheat the oven when cooking in the iven When using as a grill the grill smokes all the time
hi, what you need to do is turn the grill on and leave it on what is happening is all the steam and fat and grease form the cooking you have done in the oven has risen and stuck on the heating element the grill uses, so open your windows and turn the grill onto its highest setting and just leave it after a while the smoke will stop.
You need to do this so that any food you cook using the grill doesnt smell of the smoke thats burning on the grill element.
Dont worry you wont do any harm to it this is a very common problem with combo ovens and grills and the same goes for microwaves with the grill feature so dont worry to much its what happens over time if you dont use the grill much.
So just switch the grill on and leave it it can take upto 20 to 30min to stop smoking but after its burned off all the grease and fat etc it will stop smoking and stop smelling so dont worry everybody who has one goes through this same problem.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.
Its best you do this once a week or so to ensure that it dont build up to much as it can really stink the whole place out and if you cook food without burning it all off your food will taste like the smell witch believe me isnt nice, so just leave it all to burn off leave your windows and doors open and after about 20 min you should find the smoke will stop and the smell will go away.
You may find it only takes 5 to 10 min but dont worry no matter how long it takes your not doing any harm your just cleaning the element.
Dont try cleaning it with cleaning products as this can cause harm to the element and could taint any food with the cleaning product you use.
The only real help you can give is that before you turn it on to burn off the grease use a stiff hand brush and brush the element to remove all the dried on loose bits this will then make it quicker to stop smoking.
But other than that just leave it and it will sort itself out.
