Being neurotic about oven grates?

15 years ago

Am I being too neurotic about keeping my oven grates looking like new? I have a self-cleaning Dacor 36" oven. The oven directions say to remove the grates before running the self-clean cycle because the grates will warp under the high heat of the cleaning cycle. Two of the grates are normal and one is a telescoping one. I remove them and spray them down with Dawn Power Dissolver. It takes hours to get into the difficult to reach areas--especially in the telescoping mechanism, but I always want the grates to look perfect. Am I being nuts? Is there a better way?
