Pyrolytic Oven Fumes

pyrolytic self-cleaning oven
 

Pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens have a special high temperature cleaning cycle to burn off accumulations of grease and other cooking residues. During this cycle the oven temperature is increased to 450- 500°C (840-930°F) for a period of several hours, and the fumes emitted can be quite offensive. For this reason, many high-end pyrolytic ovens have a catalytic converter built in to ensure that the air in the kitchen is kept clean and not acrid.
