    No. Hell no. Don’t fucking put aluminum foil in your oven. Even better, don’t tell others to do it without first researching why every oven manufacturer warns specifically against doing this.

    OP, I’m sure you mean well with this advice but its bad advice, take out your foil! ☺️

    Since the other person didn’t explain *why* you shouldn’t line your oven with foil, I found [Whirlpool’s website where it explains why you shouldn’t.](https://www.whirlpool.com/blog/kitchen/can-you-put-aluminum-foil-in-the-oven.html)

    >•Using foil on oven racks can disrupt heat distribution in the oven and interfere with optimal cooking results.

    >•Covering up vent openings in the bottom of the oven can lead to insufficient air flow, heat distribution and issues with performance.

    >•Heat reflecting off aluminum foil can overcook foods or damage your oven’s heating elements.

    >•Lining your gas oven with aluminum foil can block heat, air flow, and produce less than optimal cooking results.

    >•Aluminium foil can cause scratching of the oven’s enamel surfaces, and can also melt when contacting hot surfaces or elements, potentially causing cosmetic or permanent functional damage to elements or surfaces.

    What I do is just put whatever I’m cooking into a larger pan that is covered in foil. If whatever I’m cooking boils over, it’s caught on the foil lined pan and takes ten seconds to clean up by just throwing away the foil.
