Injects bursts of steam during cooking.
True self-cleaning ovens are pyrolytic. Set on the cleaning mode, the oven locks itself and heats up to around 500°C, converting food residues into ash, which you wipe away when it cools.
Often referred to as 'self-cleaning' surfaces, catalytic liners work by absorbing fat splatters. You need to regularly heat the oven to 250°C for an hour to burn off the splatters and wipe them with a damp cloth when cool.
Models that have bottom plus fan mode, bottom plus fan-forced mode, or a specific pizza mode.
Our home economist cooks a range of meals to test the oven's ability to perform over a range of temperatures, times and functions. The performance score accounts for 60% of the overall score.

Scones are baked over two shelves to test evenness at a high temperature over a short time.
A fresh pizza is cooked at very high temperature for a short period to assess the oven's ability to crisp and brown the base and evenly cook the toppings.
We roast a chicken to assess baking a non-uniform food at moderate to high temperature over a long period while retaining moisture and crisping the skin.
The internal baking volume is calculated from measurements of the lowest shelf of the oven or baking tray (if supplied with one) to the grill element, side-wall to side-wall, and the rear-wall to the door.
