    Cook pizzas! Basically get it real hot and burn it all off.

    Just don't plan on having a gasket afterwards.

    If you want to save your gasket, carry it at 500 for a bit then ball up some aluminum foil and "scrub" the ceramics with it.

    If you're talking about the inside, cook some pizzas. It will clean like a self cleaning oven. If you're talking about the outside, I use Simple Green.

    Zero reason to do a clean burn for inside. Zero. It cooks and taste the same. Save your lump.
    For outside as mentioned soap/water or Simple Green.
