How to Clean Oven Door Glass

November 11, 2019

Have you looked at your oven door interior glass and thought, “I really should clean that,” but then forgot all about it? Now, as Thanksgiving approaches, you realize that the inside of your oven door is so grimy and greasy, you won’t be able to see the turkey or casseroles or pies as they’re cooking. If so, don’t worry – Bar Keepers Friend can help you clean glass oven doors quickly without the use of harsh chemicals. Using harsh chemicals where you roast your Thanksgiving turkey, bake pumpkin pies, and cook your grandmothers famous recipe green bean casserole doesn’t sound like a good idea, does it.  

What to Use for Heavy Grime

Bar Keepers Friend has a full line up of specialty cleaning Products that can be used on glass surfaces. For example, some of our fans prefer Cookware Cleanser  & Polish as shown in this under 2 minute video, How To Clean An Oven Door, Oven Door Glass, Remove Burned Stains, with Bar Keepers Friend. 

However, when it comes to cutting through sticky, greasy burnt on food residue, it’s hard to beat the same product your grandmother used to clean her glass casserole dish after she burned the bottom of it baking her famous green bean casserole. Your grandma used Bar Keepers Friend Powder Cleanser and so can you. 

How to Clean a Heavily-Soiled Oven Door

Before cleaning your oven door, make sure it’s cool to the touch, and place a layer of newspaper on the floor to catch any drips. We also recommend wearing gloves. 

What you’ll need:

  • Bar Keepers Friend Powder Cleanser
  • Sponge
  • Bucket of water
  • Scouring pad
  • Dry soft cloth
  • Small bowl or container


  1. Wet the glass with the sponge one side at a time
  2. Place a small amount of BKF powder in the bowl
  3. Drizzle the BKF in the bowl with water
  4. Stir the BKF and water to create a paste (if you added too much water, add more BKF until it is the consistency of paste)
  5. Spread the paste over the wetted glass
  6. Let it sit for one minute
  7. Wipe the paste off with the sponge
  8. Repeat as needed
  9. For tougher stains, cover a scouring pad with the BKF paste
  10. Complete all sides of the oven
  11. Wipe dry with a soft cloth
  12. Repeat as needed

Keeping Your Oven Door Glass Clean

Once you’ve deep-cleaned your oven door, you can use Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser or BKF Multipurpose Cooktop Cleaner for lighter periodic cleaning. 

Shake the bottle well before opening. Squeeze a small amount onto a damp soft sponge and spread the cleanser across the interior oven door, rubbing lightly in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly within one minute of application and wipe the surface dry. 

Cleaning Between Double-Paned Glass Oven Doors

A note of caution: You can find plenty of how-to videos about cleaning between two panes of oven glass; however, disassembling your oven door could invalidate the warranty on your appliance. Always check your oven owner’s manual for specific recommendations – you may need to call a service technician to disassemble your oven door. 

Versatile Products, Multiple Uses

Unlike harsh oven cleaners, BKF Powder Cleanser, Cooktop Cleaner, and Soft Cleanser have multiple uses throughout the home. You can not only use them to clean your oven door, but also your kitchen sink, bathtub, glass shower doors, and grandma’s antique glass casserole baking dish. We hope you enjoy watching your thanksgiving feast cook through your spotlessly clean oven door.
