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.
I take my rings outside to clean them. It seems the cleaner dries before it has a chance to do all it could do. I never thought about using cling wrap to keep it from drying. I'll give it a try.
Oh I wish mine looked as good as yours....I am off to the store!
If you're proud of your nice clean stove, show it the way it really looks.
(I'm going to get you people hooked on Gimp, yet).
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.
How do I clean baked grease on the back of a gas stove?

I learned this from my aunt. She uses oven cleaner for cleaning the top of her gas stove and it looks brand new.
I clean mine with GooGone and a Magic Eraser.
I figured out that baking soda and vinegar work the best with a little elbow work.
