How to Clean burnt on grease off gas Stove top without scrathing it?
When that happens on our enameled cooking surface, I use fume free oven cleaner. I spray it on fairly heavy then cover with a paper towel so it does not dry out so fast. Sometimes on really heavy deposits I will spray the towel as well just to be sure it stays wet longer. After a few hours later I then come back pick up the towels and wipe clean with a wet sponge. So far this has worked well for us. The biggest issue being is once the surface is scratched it become more and more difficult to keep clean.
If it's REALLLLLY bad, spray a little bit of oven cleaner on it & let it sit for while. That should at least soften it. Try using a plastic scraper on it or even a spoon gently. I too use Barkeepers Friend and it's wonderful. Used it to get the hard water debris off my shower tiles. Nothing else worked on it. I think Lowe's carries it & many grocery stores in the aisle where you find cleaners....I found it on the bottom shelf at my store....
thanks i'll have to get it, my stove top does have a ring around the burner, i've even tried Glass Cook Top heavy duty cleaner and polish, but still has a large ring on it...
I buy Bar Keepers Friend at my local Walmart, the liquid type works wonders for cleaning the soap scum from your tub also... Any where there is grease buildup, I have a bottle in each bathroom and the kitchen. Love it.
I use non-flamable engine degreaser, dilute as instructed, let it soak and take a soft scrubbing pad to it. It really smells good too. I have also used grate cleaner that you would use on your grill on my stove top, but the degreaser did a better job.
Brasso metal polish and a little elbow grease with a Scotch-Brite sponge. You'll be amazed at how well it works.
