I soaked mine in very hot almost boiling water and a good degreaser I purchased at the hardware store. Just let them soak for about a half hour. Then scrub with good scrub brush. Make sure you wear rubber gloves as the water may still be hot! jeangnome46 (11/04/2004)
If you are cleaning the stovetop burners, I just pop mine in the dishwasher. It works great even when we bought our house and they were really, really dirty.
Bar Keeper's Friend. Check out their website: barkeepersfriend.com It's cleans everything. I've found this product at Bed,Bath & Beyond. Some grocery stores and Walmart occasionally. Try it you'll be so satisfied. (07/25/2005)
Try baking soda and just a little bit of elbow grease. It is abrasive enough to get the grime up but not abrasive enough to scratch up your finish. Baking soda also works great for removing stains on your counter tops, with a little elbow grease. And, I really do mean just a little. You don't have to scrub hard at all and I just use a regular wash cloth for both of these things
I don't like to use products with a strong smell like ammonia. I just put all non-aluminum pieces into the dish washer machine. The hot water cleans all them very well and makes them shine.
I do have problems to clean the top: it's stainless steel and I can't rub anything to avoid scratches. (08/30/2007)
I used "fume-free Max" Easy Off Oven Cleaner on my stainless cook top around where the flames come out (all that cooked on mess). I just sprayed two coats of it at night, and in the morning I used the scrubby side of my sponge, and it came off beautifully and easily! I wish I would have figured this out a long time ago!
