How to Deep Clean Your Stove in 5 Effective Steps

by Elnazhamai

Today, I want to share with you my method for how to deep clean your stove. I will be cleaning my gas stove, which is a bit more work than cleaning a glass cooktop, but it's something I do regularly to keep my kitchen sparkling clean.

You can use this same method with an electric coil stove, just unplug the coils and be sure to dry them thoroughly before plugging them back in.

Tools and Materials

  • GP66 Miracle Cleaner (found on Amazon)
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Scrubbing sponge
  • Razor blade scraper (with a plastic side)
  • Shadazzle cleaning paste (found in Amazon)
  • Electric toothbrush and small crevice brush for tight gaps and crevices
  • Pumice stone
  • Mineral oil

Step 1: Preparing the Stove

I start by removing all the grates from my stove and placing them in the sink. Then, I spray them with the miracle cleaner degreaser. While the degreaser works its magic, I move on to cleaning the stovetop and the hood above the stove.

Step 2: Cleaning the Stovetop

Spray the stovetop with the degreaser.

Let it sit for two minutes to work on the grease and grime.

While the degreaser is working on the stovetop, I spray the hood and wipe away any grease there.

Using a scrubber sponge, I scrub away any grime and grease from the stovetop surface.

Using a damp microfiber cloth, rinsing as needed, I clean the stovetop until all traces of cleaner and grease are gone.

If there are stubborn bits of food stuck on, I gently use the plastic side of a razor blade scraper to remove them.

Step 3: Tackling Stains and Stubborn Spots

For any stains on the burners, I apply a bit of the all-natural cleaning paste and scrub them clean with an electric toothbrush.

I also use a crevice brush to reach into tight gaps and crevices, ensuring no dirt is left behind.

Don't forget to wipe the gap cover, too.

Step 4: Cleaning the Grates

Returning to the sink, I give the grates a good scrub and rinse off all the grease and grime.

For those extra stubborn spots, I use a pumice stone to gently scrub them away.

Step 5: Cleaning Burner Caps and Oiling

Next up are the burner caps. I apply the power paste again and scrub them clean before giving them a thorough rinse.

Once everything is clean and dry, I make sure to apply a light coating of mineral oil to the grates and burner caps to prevent rusting.

I let the mineral oil soak in for about 15 minutes before putting everything back in its place.

And there you have it – a beautifully clean gas stove ready to tackle any cooking adventure!

Taking the time to deep clean your stove may seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and a bit of elbow grease, it can be a breeze. So, why not give it a try and enjoy a sparkling clean kitchen? How often do you clean your stove? Share any cleaning tips you have in the comments below.
