Importance of a Self Cleaning Oven

6 months ago

I am seriously considering ordering a Thermador 36" gas range and just found out it does not have a self-cleaning oven. Is it a mistake to order? That option is available in a higher end model, but at a considerably higher price. My question is, how important is it to have that option? Without it, would this oven be fairly easy to clean on my own? Could I use a protective layer on the bottom of the oven to make spills easier to clean up?
