Not really a cooking question, but hoping someone here can help.

What is the best thing to get cooked-on grease off of a glass oven door?  We have a nice toaster oven that we use to broil chicken pretty frequently.  I've tried everything and can't get the grease marks off the glass oven door.  Bleh. 

Anyone have any tips?  Thanks in advance.

I don't know if you have tried this, but we have the same thing with our ronco rotisserie(Sp?).  I just use oven cleaner.

I used one of those magic erasers, the Mr. Clean one. But the best thing was our putty knife, it scraped all the brown off. This was on the full size oven, mind you.

And if you do use the Mr. Clean eraser, be SURE to rinse a lot!

Make a thick paste with baking soda.  Leave it on to dry.  It will flake off, lifting the grease with it.  Safe near your food.  Great at getting off burnt cheese.  I will even leave it on the bottom of the oven when cooking.

  I have two suggestions.  either a straight edged razor blade you can scrape off the baked on bits. or try Bar Keepers Friend, it is wonderful stuff!
