    in order to keep it clean for longer I place a double layer of kitchen foil/tin foil on the bottom of oven and grill tray

      My oven directions said to never use foil as it distorts the actual baking temp of the oven and can ruin the bottom heating element.

    Mary, check your warranty to see if your stove top is covered, if not see if it can be repaired either thru the store or the appliance company. I am not sure if water will short out your stove, if it's electric be cateful.

    For the really baked on grime that falls to the bottom of the oven, you can use a layer of several paper towels soaked in water (and maybe some vinegar) and let sit. After a while, you should be able to wipe the worst of it, then proceed with the baking

    Best bet. Wife type gets silicone mats made for bottom of over (usually gets them for BD and Christmas). Not too expensive, but beats cleaning heavy spills between doing Oven Clean setting on stove.
