Solving The Servant Problem

A British scientist has prognosticated that within ten years every sub-urban matron will have her own robot servant. One task this domesticated automaton will not have to contend with will be scouring the oven because today the newest ranges can be programmed to reduce their own baked on grime to easily disposed of ashes.
