I have used both Simple Green and EasyOff Oven Cleaner. Just depends if I want to walk to the laundry room or to the kitchen to get the cleaner!

I must say that EasyOff does a better job on that really heavy buildup. I bought a couple of 10” blades at a garage sale once because they were so cheap. Very heavy buildup. After an overnight soak, they looked almost brand new!

Routine cleaning gets the Simple Green. Works very well.

As a hint, go to the dollar store and buy a metal pizza pan, the kind with the lip that’s about a half inch deep. I have one that’s 11 inches in diameter. Ten inch blades fit perfect. That way you can put a couple washers in the pan (I superglued mine in – it keeps anybody from thinking about using the pan to make pizza! ) that will hold the blade off the pan’s bottom. Pour in enough Simple Green or EasyOff to cover the blade and let it soak. (I also spray painted the outside of the pan RED in case they missed the washers!)
