  • Usually a grease-cutting dish soap does the trick. You may need to use a plastic scrubber to remove any tougher spots.

  • Use Krud Kutter spray. You can get it at Lowes

    Hello. I like the results using this easy off degreasing spray.

    I can vouch for the easy off. If you can remove the grates and pans that are over the burners I would soak them in your sink with dish soap and hot water and then put them through your dishwasher.

    Dish soap and a Scrub Daddy sponge. Rinse and DRY. Most people don't dry things and get smears. Use a microfiber towel to dry.

    Method 1: Using warm water and a drop of dish washing liquid, lather up a sponge or soft brush. Apply it to the greasy stove top, rubbing in a circular motion, and concentrating on the greasy areas. Let the soapy water sit for a few minutes on the surface. As you start to see the grease loosen, follow with a damp cloth. For a really messy stove top, work in small areas, wiping as you go.

    Method 2: If simple soap and water didn't do the trick, try this. Sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda on the stove top. Slice a lemon in half and rub the cut side on the stove top in a circular motion. The mildly abrasive baking soda and the naturally degreasing lemon juice will form a scrubbing paste. Continue scrubbing until you can wipe away the grease with a damp sponge or cloth.

    Method 3: Combine baking soda with a few drops of dish washing liquid and a few drops of water directly on the stove top. Let the solution sit for 10 minutes, before wiping with a damp cloth.

    Method 4: If the natural cleaning methods above didn't work, it may be time to try a store-bought degreasing spray (such as Method Kitchen Degreaser, $4, target.com). Follow the product instructions for a grease-free stove top.

    Mix a few drops of dishwashing liquid — preferably a brand known for cutting grease — with your hot water. Dampen a fresh microfiber cloth with your hot soapy water, and wipe down the stovetop. Again, you'll repeat as necessary. If your microfiber cloth starts looking dingy, replace it with a fresh cloth.

    I use the Easy Off method too, but I purchase mine at the dollar store. I use the gas grill outdoors kind. It does not harm my stove. I carefully spray it on avoiding the ignitor, let it sit for a minute, then use a non scratch scrubby or brillo. Do not use a magic eraser it will scratch the surface. Ask me how I know that. Then rinse with a little Dawn and water. Clean with a damp microfiber cloth and your stove will shine. Try to keep it clean between cooking. I do mine about once a week. By the way the racks and caps can be put in a sealed plastic bag sprayed and if left overnight, the gunk just washes right off.

    Hi Karen: What I use is Spic N Span liquid and warm water. You can make a spray and let it sit for about 10 seconds and then wipe clean. You may have to do it a couple of times if it's really greasy. Or, you can check this site:

    Good old hot water, soap and elbow grease. You can try sos if surface is porous. You could also spray with oven cleaner and let it sit for a bit too.. Good Luck

    Good old "Comet". I use it to clean my stove top all the time. Get stove top wet. Sprinkle Comet over stove top. I use one of those green skrubbies cut in half. I scrub the whole top. Concentrate on heavier areas, like burnt on area. Make sure that when you are done there is a coating of comet covering the top, not too wet. I let sit for a while. I might do something else in the kitchen. Take your green scrub and go over one more time and make sure you got all the bad spots. Get your sponge or dish rag clean and wipe off top. Your glass top should be shinny and clean. I do this every two days. Once you get used to it, it will only take a few seconds to do and your top will look great all the time. Good luck! Buy the regular dry comet in the green paper can, you shake it from the top.
