Question: How does the Pyrolytic function work?

A feature of certain Smeg ovens, Pyrolytic cleaning is an automatic cleaning function which works by heating the inside of the oven to 500°C, at which temperature any grease stuck to the walls is simply burned off. All Pyrolytic ovens use Cool Door technology, which indicates that during the Pyrolytic cleaning cycle the outer door glass will become no hotter than 55ºC, and feature a special safety device which locks the door for the duration of the process. Once the programme has finished and the oven has cooled down, wipe off dirt and burned-on residue with a wet sponge and then dry with the Smeg PAMI-1 microfibre cloth.
