Wolf Oven Racks Cleaning Instructions

Topics:

  • How to clean oven racks or oven rack guides
  • Self-clean oven racks or oven rack guides or place in a dishwasher
  • Oven racks left in oven during self-clean and now tarnished or discolored

Answer:

Oven racks may become discolored with normal use.

  • Some cooking methods result in heavier or more frequent staining, such as broiling meat with high fat content or spilling acidic food like tomato sauce.
  • Wolf does not suggest replating or refinishing oven racks if damage occurs.
  • Oven racks and rack guides should be removed from the oven during self-clean to avoid discoloration, warping, or permanent damage of the racks.
  • Standard oven racks (not full-extension ball-bearing racks) are dishwasher safe. However, a dishwasher may not remove all heavy stain build-up.

The full-extension ball-bearing rack is not dishwasher safe.

  • Clean with hot water and mild detergent or a paste of baking soda and water.
  • Do not submerge in water.
  • Degreasers along with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad may be used sparingly.
  • Oven cleaner may be used on the full-extension ball-bearing rack; however, care should be taken to prevent cleaner from getting into the glides. Damage can result.
  • Rinse and towel dry

If necessary, contact a Factory Certified Service to order replacement grates or oven racks.
