How to stop your oven smoking when you use the grill

If you're seeing lots of smoke when you're using your grill, or your food's cooking too fast, it could be because you're not leaving the door open when the grill's on.

When you use the grill, the top heating elements in your oven turn on, heating and cooking your food.

If the door's closed, the heat won't be able to escape – and the oven may start to get too hot. This means your food might cook too fast, causing it to burn and smoke, and can also damage the rubber seals around the oven door. For that reason, we’d always recommend leaving the oven door open a couple of inches when using the grill.

Some ovens have a built-in cooling fan. This fan will turn on automatically when the oven gets too hot, meaning you can leave the door closed. We’d recommend checking the oven manufacturer's manual for details.
