Those ovens having pyrolytic cleaning or catalytic cleaning means that these ovens have self-cleaning feature. The user does not have to physically clean the oven themselves. In pyrolytic cleaning the oven heats up to above 500°C and burns off all the stains in the oven cavity to ash. This means that the user only need to wipe out the ash after the oven have cooled down. In a catalytic oven, you will have 2 panels which you need to install on to the sides of the oven cavity. During catalytic cleaning, which the oven will be heated to the maximum temperature on the control knob and the stains on the 2 panels (right & left) sides of the oven cavity will be burnt to ash but the stains that are on the top and bottom of the oven have to be clean by hand. Hence, a superior cleaning result can be achieved via pyrolytic cleaning Vs catalytic cleaning oven.
