For some years, there are ovens that have this pyrolytic function. It is an automatic program thanks to which it is possible to break down the remains of oven dirt, fat and food. At high temperatures, about 500ºC, organic matter decomposes into CO2 and water and evaporates, while inorganic matter turns to ash.
