Cleaning your oven regularly is the best way to make sure it's clean and in tip-top condition whenever you fancy making a nice meal.
Unfortunately, busy lifestyles and more pressing concerns often mean giving your cooker a good scrub from time to time is rarely a priority.
But with it being one of the most-used appliances in the kitchen, it's only a matter of time before oil, grease and other cooking build-ups leave you with an unsightly brown stain on your glass oven door.

Regular cleaning will also make an oven more efficient, but it's one of those onerous tasks that keeps getting put off to another day, writes The Express.
If your once-gleaming oven now looks like a rubbish tip cast-off, however, you need not feel defeated.
There is way to remove the marks without the necessity of a trip to the household cleaning product aisle of your local supermarket
Fortunately, cleaning your filthy oven door is easier than you may think - and can be done using a mixture of everyday household products.
White vinegar and bicarbonate of soda are the crucial ingredients to knock up a cheap but highly effective over cleaner.
After wiping off what surface grime you can from the glass door, it's time to get down to talking the baked on grease.
The cleaning solution first requires making a thick paste using about 60g of bicarbonate of soda and a small amount of water.
You then need to spread it over the surface of the door and leave it for about 20 minutes to do its magic.
Then you can use a damp sponge to wipe away the bicarbonate of soda - but don't scrub too hard as the tiny crystals should do the work for you, and you don't want to damage the glass.
Once the baking soda is removed, apply the contents of a spray bottle containing some mixed with a small amount of water to the surface.
After wiping off the solution, the result should be a shiny clean oven door.
A few repetitions of this process will remove the most stubborn stains if your oven is a particular disaster zone.
To clean the outside of the oven door, use a regular glass cleaner and cloth.
