Please help. They delivered my new gas range today and will be hooking it up. I’ve been informed to do a burn off before allowing my Parrotlet Kai out of the sealed off room he has been living in for several weeks now. What exactly is burn off time and please tell me for how long? Someone mentioned it was the oven and they ran it on 400 for two hours while another person said it was the time it took the gas to run through all the burners. Are they both right? I’m very confused and need to get this right the first time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Worried.

Miss Mary, I found an article on cnet, after googling your question, and tried to post the link, here, but it was felt that this content was inappropriate for Talk Parrots.



So, here is a break-down of information you were looking for, condensed.


Appliance maker Belling, explains that the smell and light smoke you may see on the first use is from a protective coating of oil that is used during the manufacturing process.


The best way to get rid of the manufacturers' new-oven smell is to run a proper burn-in cycle. It's recommended that you not cook any food prior to a burn-in, as the smell (and potentially the taste) can stick with your food.


How to break in your new oven

No matter what type of oven you have, the first thing you should do is remove any zip or twist ties. Then use warm, soapy water and a washcloth to wipe down any racks and the insides of the oven.
Once you have wiped down all the surfaces inside the oven, it's time to start the burn-in. While instructions may vary from one manufacturer to the next, the premise of every "burn-in" process is the same:
  • Turn on the fan in the ventilation hood and, if possible, open a few nearby windows.
  • Set the oven to high heat, between 400 to 550 degrees Fahrenheit (204 to 288 degrees Celsius).
  • Let the oven run at this temperature for between 30 minutes and an hour.
If the smell persists after the cycle, repeat the process once or twice more. Once you no longer smell oil or a burning odor, allow the oven to fully cool and use a warm, soapy wash cloth to wipe down the inside of the oven a final time.

Of course, it is very important to keep Parrotlet Kai in his sealed, safe room while this process is occurring, as the fumes can seriously harm him.


I hope this response has helped answer your question, Miss Mary. ❤️️ Glad to be of assistance. ~Sweet Parakeet

Thank you so much for your reply and for taking the time to look this up for me. I will definitely follow these instructions. I will also make sure that Kai remains sealed in until I am positive there are no more fumes. Even after the plastic comes down I will probably keep the door closed to the room for several days before opening it and then wait a week before returning him to his normal place in the dinning room. I am really afraid for him. We’ve only gotten through half the work. Tomorrow they are installing the countertop and the following day the backsplash. I am so nervous. Thank you again. You were a great help.

With the exception of the installation of one door and painting of two door frames and one window frame the kitchen is finished. They completed the countertop and the rest of the cabinets on Friday 3/20 so I didn’t do the burn in till late yesterday afternoon. My husband didn’t want to run the oven a half hour at a time (cooling it down and heating it up again) so here is what I did. I took the racks out and washed the inside of then oven then ran the oven at 425 for 21/2 hours with the vent running on high and windows opened. After cooling I washed the oven out again and left windows open for three more hours. I did however shut the vent off. I need to vacuum and wash down the entire kitchen as there is fine dust all over before using. We will probably use the stove tomorrow (Monday) and I will run the oven. The kitchen will remain sealed off for a few more days (maybe even till the end of the week) and Kai will remain in the sealed off back room for the same amount of time or maybe longer. I am very nervous and since he’s been safe and okay this long I don’t want to risk anything going wrong now. Thank you so much for asking and showing concern.

Sunday (added on)
I actually ran the oven again today (Sunday) at 425 for one hour with vent fan running and window open. While I didn’t wash the inside of the oven first because I wash it after running it yesterday I did wash it after I was done running it. So the oven ran a total of 31/2 hours at 425 between today and yesterday
