How to Clean a Glass Door on a Toaster Oven

While a toaster oven provides a convenient method of warming or cooking small amounts of food as well as toasting breads and pastries, it can become soiled and unsightly with regular use. When the glass door has baked food and residues covering it, not only does your toaster look untidy on your counter, you also cannot easily look through the door to view your cooking or toasting food. Clean a glass door on a toaster oven regularly to ensure your toaster looks clean and works well.

Clean a glass door on a toaster oven carefully.
  1. Unplug the toaster oven before you clean it.

  2. Open the toaster oven door and spray the inside of the glass door thoroughly with the degreaser spray. Allow the degreaser spray to sit on the surface of the glass door for up to five minutes to penetrate into the stains.

  3. Wipe the inside of the glass door with paper towels to work the degreaser spray into the stains and loosen the food. Remove as much food as possible with the paper towels.

  4. Wipe the glass door again with a clean and dry paper towel to remove any remaining cleaning spray and food residues.

  5. Squirt a small amount of liquid cleaner onto the inside surface of the glass door if stains remain.

  6. Moisten a paper towel slightly with water and use it to work the liquid cleaner into the stains on the glass door. Continue rubbing until you remove the remaining stains.

  7. Rinse the liquid cleaner from the inside of the glass door with another moist paper towel. Dry the glass door with a dry paper towel. Close the glass door.

  8. Spray the outer surface of the glass door lightly with the glass cleaner. Wipe the outer surface of the door with the paper towel to clean and shine it.


  • Do not use abrasive cleaners or cleaning tools to clean the glass door because you may scratch the glass surface.
