Self cleaning oven racks?

posted by: makmo73 on 11.30.2013 at 09:35 pm in Kitchens Forum

Are there any convection double ovens that allow for the racks to stay in the oven during self cleaning cycle? We just sold our house with Viking Double Convection ovens, which I loved, but cleaning the racks, especially the gliding racks, was a chore I do not wish to face again. We are now shopping for new ovens for the new house and would like to find built in double convection ovens that have self cleaning racks. Does such a beast exist?

Straddling induction hobs...

I'm hesitating which induction cooktop to get. I had originally planned on a 30" induction and a 2-burner gas top with a gap between them, but now I'm thinking a 36" induction alone might be enough. My concern is mainly placement of large pots at this point.

Can you straddle two of the smaller burners with a 12" (bottom measurement) pot?

I'm looking at the Bosch 800 and the Gaggenau with the knob. Can someone here who has one of these (or similar) tell me how straddling works in reality?
I'd use the main large hub for anything that needs real power and the straddled hobs for simmering. Also, can a 12" pan fit on the large hob at the same time as a 12" pot is straddling two small burners?

My other question has to do with interface disks. Do they actually work? I'd love to use my (non-magnetic) scanpan pans for eggs at medium heat. No matter how well I season my Debuyer iron pans, they are never quite as good as scanpan for pancakes and eggs. They are great for high heat searing, though.

We just sold our house with Viking Double Convection ovens. Loved the ovens but cleaning the oven racks, especially the gliding racks, is not something I will miss. Now looking for new ovens for the new house and would like to find a brand that allows for cleaning the racks in the ovens during the self cleaning cycle. Does anyone know if there is such an oven?
