"some people like to line the bottom of their oven with foil when they'reooking a big meal, but it's not a gooddea because it t flects the heat. itt can alter your coooong time and it could also cover up important vents that could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or even a fire." "suu, it prevents drips and what-have-you and makes cleaning easier, but it causes some problems as far as uneven heat, reflection because oven cavities are made to disperse the heat properly so we have even baking. so foil - not a good idea." like the experts said, don't line the bottom of your oven with foil. also, don't use the self- cleaning feature if you're about to cook a big meal. it heats your oven up to about 850 degrees and raises the potential of burning out the heating element. remember to not cover the vents.
