This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Nest.

In this Badge Bit, you will run a self cleaning oven.  (Note that this BB is part of an 8-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Jeeves List. You must complete eight Badge Bits in the Jeeves List.)

  - Quick Tips on Self Cleaning Ovens

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - run a self cleaning oven
      - make sure to remove racks before starting
      - when done, wipe out ash and replace racks

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a before picture of the self cleaning oven
   - an action shot of the self cleaning oven running
   - an after picture of the self cleaning oven after you wiped it
   - a description of any additional cleaning procedures you did
   - OR a 2-minute video of you doing this

Note to self:  Leave the house while the oven self-cleans, it smells.   Self cleaning the oven is not a set and forget, once the cycle is complete the ash residue needs to be wiped up, the glass on the inside had to be cleaned with a baking  soda and razor blade and the racks needed to be cleaned. I need to clean the oven more often. I am ready for Thanksgiving pies. I did forget to take the picture of the oven running the self clean.

Staff note (Mike Haasl):

I'm trying to channel Paul on this one... While you're missing the photo of it in operation, I'll give you some leeway since you're the first to attempt this BB. I hereby certify it.

This guy is skipping without a rope. At least, that's what this tiny ad said:
