I want to meet the guy/gal who invented the self-cleaning oven. In my humble opinion, it is, by far, up there on the Top 10 Best Inventions of the Century list. Along with good ol' Ben and Tom's development of electricity, of course.

Cleaning an oven, BSC,* is one of the nastiest jobs in the home. A well-cooked in oven gets soooo groddy, First you gotta spread/spray on that questionable chemical stuff that theoretically eats away at the burned on gunk. And if it does all that to the gunk, you know what it does to your skin should you be so careless as to get it on said delicate derma.

Then you have to wait for it to do its thing as the globby crud drips all over the place. And then comes the best part of all... wiping up all that crud. And wiping, and wiping, and wiping. Going through umpteen rags and paper towels and nearly passing out from the acrid fumes.

Nope, not me. I'd rather clean ten toilets than one oven. At least I can keep flushing the nasty away. Besides, my toilet has never looked like my oven.

A big ol' hug to the inventor... don't ever wanna live without one.

*BSC = before self-cleaning

Marianne: a toilet that looks like the inside of an un-cleaned oven is just too disgusting for words. *shudder* thank you for THAT mental image! LOL
