What can I put in my oven to prevent spills?
A simple sheet of aluminum foil can stop any spill from reaching the heating element of your oven and burning. There are two approaches to using foil. Line the bottom rack with a sheet of foil to catch anything dripping from above. This allows the air to flow unobstructed around the food being cooked above.

There are plenty of pins on Pinterest that suggest covering the floor or the racks of your oven with aluminum foil to keep them clean. Foil on the racks of gas or electric ovens can block heat and air flow, leading to improperly cooked food. With any type of oven, putting foil at the bottom can be risky.
“To avoid possible heat damage to your oven, we do not recommend using aluminum foil to line the bottom of your oven. Rather, we recommend that you place a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil on the oven rack beneath the pie or casserole you are baking. The foil will catch any drips before they reach the oven bottom.”

Why does my oven smoke every time I use it?
The most likely cause of a smoking oven is spills and debris from past use. These drops of grease and food bits heat up and burn, resulting in smoke and odors. They could be anywhere inside the oven, including the racks, so if this is the cause of your smoke issues, it’s time for a good cleaning.
What do I do if I dropped something in my oven?
As soon as you notice the spill in your oven, turn the oven off and place a handful of salt over the future stain. The oven should be off but still warm, so be careful. Let the salt sit on the stain for a few minutes and then use a spatula to scrape the spill off the bottom of the oven, just like that!
Why is my oven steaming up?
Your Oven Is Making Condensation Inside The Door. When you cook food in your oven, it’s normal for steam to be produced and a little moisture to build up on the surfaces of the door. If the amount of condensation inside the oven is excessive, this means there is humid air trapped in the interior.
Where do you place an oven liner?
PROPER PLACEMENT FOR GAS OVENS: Place oven liner on the bottom wire rack – NOT on the floor of the oven. * DO NOT cover or block any holes inside the oven. You may place baking dishes and pans directly on the oven liner’s surface.
Rather than using the middle racks, place your baking sheet directly on the floor of the oven. This will “provide the hottest, most even and direct heat possible.”
Lining the bottom of your gas oven can create interference with the flames. This will lead to improperly cooked food as hot and cold spots are created. Additionally, these issues may eventually cause damage to your stove. Using foil on your oven racks or floor can also create airflow problems.
