was trying to help with the dishes/cleanup and stashed a baking pan and plastic utensils in the oven. Fortunately, she did not have to replace her oven, but the smell!!

She found luck in using those mini pebbles (?) available in HomeDepot. They are sold in small bags, the size of ziploc, and have mesh netting to keep the stones together. I believe they are designed to help with "basement odor" and moisture. BUT, they helped her.

Another option is to cook something to mask the current smell. I know she does not have an oven, but maybe once it arrives, the first item to cook is an apple pie?

What a shame for your friend. Fun getting a new oven, but never fun when you weren't expecting the expense!
