People also ask, can you cook in a new oven right away?
Most manufacturers will tell you to heat your new oven to a high temp (think: about 400°F) for 30 minutes to help remove any residue from the surfaces inside the oven. You might have to repeat this process several times until you no longer smell the chemicals while the oven is on.
Additionally, are fumes from new oven dangerous? There is an interior enamel used on many ovens which itself can off-gas. If you have a self-cleaning oven, the chemicals released during this cycle are toxic enough to kill birds and have made many a person sick as well. Some ovens have an oil coating that is used during the manufacturing.
