Oven with pyrolysis, advantages and disadvantages, opinions of those who use it and comparison betweenpyrolytic and catalytic oven. Advice on choosing the new self-cleaning oven.

Let's face it right away: the idea of ​​a self-cleaning oven gives joy and happiness to all women, including me! However, several factors must be considered. As with everything, theoven with pyrolysispresentspros and consand on this page we will analyze them together.

Oven with pyrolysis, disadvantages and advantages

I'll tell you right away, if you are one of those people who avoids making two dishwashers to reduce electricity consumption, thepyrolytic ovennot for you. Amongdisadvantagesmain of thepyrolysisin fact, there are high energy absorption.

Pyrolysis is an excellent cleaning process. It works? It get consumed? A lot. It is not at all ecological even in the most technological variations. The first pyrolytic ovens were more energy-intensive as this process also lasted 2 - 4 hours depending on the model.

The most avant-garde ovens with pyrolysis see aself-cleaningwith a halved duration, between 60 and 120 minutes. The duration itself is not counted among the disadvantages, in fact you can start the pyrolysis in the evening, when you are now certain that you do not have to use the oven.

Then, thedisadvantagesof theoven with pyrolysisthey are essentially two:

  • High electrical consumption
  • Constraint to purchase pyrolysis-resistant oven accessories *

* I understand this concept well. I have personally got to use three pyrolytic ovens, one from Bosch, one from AEG and the other from Siemens (which he currently still uses). All three experiences have been positive in terms of cleanliness achieved but, not all manufacturers deliverbaking trayssuitable for pyrolysis… so, in some cases, with functionself-cleaningI found myself ableclean and degrease the ovenbut don't clean the baking sheet. I had to overcome this problem by buying a pyrolysis-resistant oven pan aside.

Non-pyrolysis-resistant baking accessories need to be hand washed and it's a real hassle. This is not a whim but only practical: if I have a function (pyrolytic self-cleaning) since I activate it (and invest a lot of energy for a complete cycle), then I want to take full advantage of the function also to clean trays and dripping pans. But this is just my personal opinion! Enamelled dripping pans are suitable for pyrolysis while, I learned the hard way, trays not suitable for pyrolysis tend to discolor or even slightly deform.

As for the advantages, it is clear: it is possible to have the oven always clean, always on top (including the glass!) Without having to waste a drop of sweat!

Theopinionsthat, over time, I have made myself godspyrolytic ovensthey are very positive and the only drawbacks are the ones I have listed above.

How much does a pyrolytic oven consume?

Oven with pyrolysis, consumption. Consumption is counted amongdisadvantages of the oven with pyrolysis, but how much are they? Typically, ipyrolytic ovensthey have different self-cleaning modes, or rather, different intensities.

Pyrolytic ovens offer adegree of self-cleaning"Light", "medium" and "intense". In my personal experience I have never had to use the “intense” mode (which is also the one with the longest duration). I have always used "light" pyrolysis and consumption depends on both the intensity and the model purchased.

Wanting to generalize and also reading the consumption of the pyrolytic ovens I used, I can reportconsumptionfor thepyrolysisbetween 2.5 and 4.8 kW.

Better a pyrolytic and catalytic oven?

Always relying onopinionsand personal experiences, I can say that, as far as I'm concerned, much better apyrolytic oven. Again my assessment is purely practical!

Therecatalysislike thepyrolysis, is a technology that is used in ovens for self-cleaning and which, as a price to pay, providesconsumptionvery high. Also in this case we are talking about at least 2.5 - 3 kw of absorption (basically like keeping a 2,800 watt hair dryer on for an hour!).

Acatalytic oven it exploits the ability of some substances to capture organic compounds, transforming them into gaseous products that are eliminated very easily. In the catalytic furnacestherefore, there are internal panels coated with enamels which tend to wear out to perform thecatalysis. These panels must be replaced periodically, based on the number of times the oven is cleaned. On average, manufacturers say panels need to be replaced every 2 years. Pyrolysis, on the other hand, uses high temperatures to clean the oven and does not require any wear or components to replace.

    I apologise, but, in my opinion, you commit an error. I suggest it to discuss. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
