Cleaning Porcelain Stove Grates

I need help with cleaning the porcelain grates on a Whirlpool gas range. I tried everything from degreasers, to SOS, to copper scrubbers, etc. The owners manual says not to put grates in with self cleaning cycle, but I know lots of people have recommended this. Any suggestions?

Cleaning Porcelain Stove Grates

After supper, put the grates in a large plastic bag, (on the counter or in the sink) carefully place a cereal bowl with a cup of ammonia inside the bag, being careful not to spill it in the bag. Leave it tied up all night. In the morning carefully remove bowl and pour ammonia back into the bottle. Wash the grates with a soft sponge or rag and the grease/grime will effortlessly fall off with just dish soap. (The fumes loosen all the particles on the grates.) This is the same method for cleaning the cold oven overnight. Oven will clean easily the next morning. (09/27/2010)
