How Can I Make My Oven Racks Slide Smoothly?

Good Questions

Q: My oven racks are sticking in the oven and very difficult to slide in and out. I singed my fingers last night trying to pull the rack out and turn the items on the broiler tray.

Do you have any suggestions to make the rack slide easier out of the oven when I broil? — Sent by Iona

Editor: We don't have any good suggestions on fixing this problem, but we can recommend an oven rack push pull, which can also be useful in reducing oven burns.

Readers? Have you ever dealt with sticky oven racks?
