How to Clean Bosch Built-in Oven Doors

Updated February 21, 2017

Built-in ovens add a streamlined, professional look to any kitchen. The Bosch company offers several models of built-in ovens such as single, double and combination ovens. Fingerprints, residue and food splatters can ruin the appearance of your Bosch built-in oven. If you don't want to run the lengthy self-cleaning cycle, you can clean the oven door by hand. Bosch recommends using nonabrasive, mild products to prevent damage to the finish.

Dampen a nonabrasive scrub sponge with warm water and add two or three drops of dish detergent. Wipe the inside of the oven door, including the glass. Do not clean the gasket.

Fill a spray bottle with full-strength ammonia, and spray the glass thoroughly. Allow it to soak for five minutes.

Wipe the glass clean with a wet sponge. Rinse the sponge as needed until no residue remains.

Dry the oven door and window with paper towels.

Dampen a sponge with warm water and two or three drops of dish soap. Wipe any spills, stains or fingerprints from the oven door. If your oven has a stainless steel finish, wipe in the direction of the grain.

Rinse the sponge with water and wipe away any soap residue.

Dry the oven door with paper towels.

Spray the oven window with glass cleaner and wipe it clean with paper towels.


Do not scrub the oven interior with steel wool or use any oven cleaners. Run a self-cleaning cycle if you can't remove the stains by hand.
