Core Issue:

  • How to clean residue from a blue porcelain oven
  • What cleaning products are recommended for use on the blue porcelain?

  • Discoloration of the porcelain inside oven
  • What is the best way to clean a spill in an oven?

To clean a blue porcelain oven interior:

  1. Use a razor blade to lift baked-on foods from the oven cavity and window. See Clean Oven Window.
  2. Spray stubborn stains with a mild abrasive cleaner or spray degreaser.
  3. Scrub with a no-scratch Scotch-Brite™ pad (pink or blue).
  4. Wash the entire oven cavity with soap and water to remove all cleaning chemicals.
  5. Enter the self-clean cycle on the Wolf Dual Fuel or Built-In Wall Oven.
  6. Allow the oven to cool completely after the self-clean cycle and wipe out ash with a damp cloth.
    • For tough stains of white or gray ash, use a mild abrasive cleaner and scrub with a no-scratch Scotch-Brite™ pad (pink or blue).
    • Wipe with a damp cloth to remove cleaner.

  • Do not allow food with a high sugar or acid content (i.e. milk, tomatoes, fruit juices) to remain on any porcelain enamel surface. Failure to remove these foods may cause a permanent dull spot.
  • If the cleaning chemicals are not cleaned from the cavity thoroughly with soap and water, etching of the porcelain may occur.
  • Never wipe a warm or hot porcelain surface with a damp cloth or sponge, as this may cause chipping or crazing (hairline cracks).
  • Some porcelain may come off when wiping the oven. This is normal and causes no harm. As the oven expands and contracts, there may some slight flexing of the oven cavity.
  • Wolf does not suggest using a steamer to steam clean the oven interior.
  • Refer to Dual Fuel and Built-in Ovens Interior Cleaning and Care Video.
  • Run self-clean as often as necessary. Typically it is not needed more than a few times per year for heavy cleaning only. Use other tips for light cleaning.
