My rabbi said that in order to make the oven kosher l'pesach one needs to put it on self clean. I knew that, and I've heard several opinions on that. Like some say you need to self clean twice or something.
The thing that I do not understand is why on earth does one need to cover their oven with aluminum foil if it gets self-cleaned? Any chometz would NOT be eaten by a dog. Its ash. No other word to describe it but grey/black ash.
Why would you foil the oven? I do not understand that. I understand covering the stove, for it doesn't get self-cleaned. It isn't put into like 700 degree heat to burn, but the oven IS.
I don't get it. I really don't get it.
Why do frummies have to make their lives any more difficult than they already are?
