All you need is some baking soda to stop the smoke
You know when you’re baking something in the oven – a cake, a pizza, or perhaps a nice casserole – and something spills on the bottom? In itself, this isn’t such a big deal, but the trouble is that it usually starts to smoke up your kitchen, which isn’t fun for anyone…
So, how can you stop this from happening?
When a bit of food spills from the dish into your oven, this can start to smoke terribly. The heat from the oven will burn the tiny bit of food until it resembles charcoal. The best solution to this would of course be to turn off the oven, wait until it’s cooled down and clean up the spilled food. This isn’t always an option, though. If you’re baking a cake, you can’t just turn off the oven, or your cake will be ruined. And what if you’re preparing for a dinner party and have to get the food cooked? You’ll need another solution…
This is where our good friend baking soda comes in! It’s a true miracle product that you can use for so many different things. Put it at the bottom of your trash can, clean stainless steel with it, or use it stop your washing machine from smelling. And now for this new trick…
Here’s how to do it:
If something starts to smoke at the bottom of your oven, take out the food for a minute so you have enough room, and get out the baking soda. Liberally, but carefully (don’t burn your hands!), sprinkle baking soda on top of the spill. Put the food back in the oven and make some adjustments to stop it from spilling again if you need to. Then just keep on baking. You’ll notice the spill will stop burning and smoking. It’s as easy as that!
