(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

Ovenclean Ltd. You heard right. An Oven-Cleaning franchise! Cmon.

Folks that live in the UK will actually pay a "technician" to come over and clean their fish and chip encrusted ovens? No offense to my friends overseas, but I though Americans were considered the lazy ones…

First off, what's a hob?

Now, I'm all for keeping things clean. I'm certainly ok with cleaning franchises. I've helped more than a few folks get into them as businesses. But, an oven-cleaning franchise?

Am I missing something?

Isn't there a pretty good spray-on foamy type of product that one just well..sprays on?

(You spray the stuff inside your oven, wait like an hour, and wipe off the scummy grease with a damp sponge. Right?)

Now granted it's not a pretty job, nor is it an exciting cleaning project, but paying someone just to come over and clean your dirty oven?

I'll ask again. Am I missing something here?

There's even a franchise owner who's so happy, he bought a bouquet of flowers for one of his original customers! Look

I know that it sounds like I'm making fun of Ovenclean, but I'm actually not. I am just curious.

What is it that residents of the UK cook in their ovens that requires a paid oven cleaning service?
