How do I use pyrolytic cleaning?

The pyrolytic self-cleaning function makes scrubbing the oven a thing of the past. With the touch of a button, you can reduce the food deposits and grease inside your oven to ash that can be simply wiped away with a damp cloth. While you relax, or plan your next recipe, your Bosch oven does the hard work, setting the temperature to a blistering 485°C. It is important to note that this function is not intended for regular use, but rather a deep clean carried out every 6 to 12 months.

Step by step guide

  • Remove everything inside the oven, close the oven door and select the pyrolytic cleaning function.
  • During pyrolytic cleaning, the internal temperature of the oven will reach 485°C.
  • The glass door of the oven might be hot to touch. Do not touch it during pyrolytic cleaning.
  • Once the pyrolytic cleaning is completed, you can wipe away any remaining residue inside the oven with a damp cloth.

My oven turn on but is not heating up

If your oven is turning on but won’t heat up, the issue could be with one of your heating elements. We advise that you do not carry out a repair yourself and book a repair with one of our qualified technicians.

Why is steam coming out when I open the oven door?

This is perfectly normal and primarily related to the temperature used, the length of time used, and the moisture content of the food being cooked.

Ideally, when you need to move food or at the end of cooking, open the door for a few centimetres for a few seconds, let the steam come out, and then open the door completely.
