This morning, the weather was cool and I thought it would be a good time to clean the top of the kitchen stove. The large eye gets used a lot and over a period of time the stove top looks awful with baked on grease around the stove eye. To remove it, I use Easy Off Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner.
This is what I do to clean the stove top.
1. Raise the kitchen window and turn on the exhaust fan for plenty of ventilation.
2. Remove the drip pans and stove rings.
3. Lift the stove eyes and spray Easy-Off around the eye surfaces. Cover with Glad Cling Wrap. (I hold my breath while doing this.) Let sit for an hour or so. After 30 minutes, you can tell that the grime has loosened by rubbing it with your finger.
6. Replace drip pans and rings and enjoy your achievement.
Gimp eliminated the shadows from the window light. Thanks. I still have a few black marks around the surface that came from me scratching it before I started using Easy-Off. It's not bad for a 25 year old stove.

I have built up grease on my stovetop that is impossible to remove. Any ideas?
I use oven cleaner to spray the top,inside and the tile wall by the stove and it comes off. I use dollar store spray with windows wide open.
I have got a black, thick grease ring around my stove burners, as if it's charred. Any suggestions for how to remove it?
My stove is white enamel and I used Easy-Off oven cleaner to remove buildup from around the stove eyes. After lifting the eye and removing the pan and ring, I sprayed the enamel with the oven cleaner and put plastic wrap over it and let it sit for a few hours. It worked just like it does when cleaning the oven. I was able to wipe it off leaving the enamel nice and white. You need some good ventilation, like having the windows open, when you do this.
