What is a self-cleaning oven? Basically, the self-clean function works by shooting extreme heat or steam throughout the interior of the oven to get rid of hardened food residues. This special feature starts the cleaning process at the touch of a button.
As soon as the required temperature is reached any grease, stains, and marks are turned to dust.
Following the reduction in temperature after the cleaning has ended, wiping the oven with a damp cloth will remove any excess dust.

Other types of self-cleaning ovens
Modern self-cleaning ovens are typically categorised as pyrolytic or:
A steam clean may be used as an alternative to the high-temperature cleaning process. The interior of these ovens has a special enamel coating that releases remnants attached to the walls when activated by low heat and steam. These systems tend to be quicker than pyrolytic versions but may not be able to remove hard baked-on stains so well.

With this system, the oven interior has walls that are rough with a porous enamel finish. The enamel contains metal oxides that help reduce any stains to ash as part of the cooking process. This is an ideal option for light spatters but bigger spills should be anticipated and added protective layers placed on the base of the oven.
