Cleaning Gas Burner Grates

We recently purchased a home that had been rental property. The gas burner grates are filthy with burned on food. I have tried the combo of Dawn dish soap with white vinegar and baking soda; bought a so-called restaurant product used for difficult cleanup jobs called "Greased Lightening"; Brillo scrub pads, and on and on. I don't recall everything I've tried, but they still look awful.

I am embarrassed for other people to see them so dirty, like it doesn't matter to me. Any helpful suggestion of specific product(s) would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance of your helpful suggestions or information.

Have the same problem here, though not as bad as yours. And like you, I tried many products, techniques, & so forth.

So I've gotten them as clean as possible, with still visible burn markings, dry black lines, & more. But I clean them once a week, usually with a combo of baking soda/ peroxide/vinegar-water mix. Also soak the center caps along with the dials every so often.

Like you, I don't care for the look of older gas grates & porcelain surrounds. (BTW, my parents had a flat white porcelain electric burner, & despite all their efforts to clean & even soak them under paper towels overnight, like the gas burners it still looked very used, if that's any consolation.)

Ultimately what I did was chose an unused cabinet door roughly the size of the entire top - still hinged - & cover it the entire thing up. And I have the benefit of another countertop space to use as I want. Cutting any board to same length & width would have worked instead.

I know that's not the answer you want, but you might just have to live with them. Good luck with them regardless,

If they are old with too much stubborn stains, just buy spares which are available easily, to make the stove look reasonably in good condition and start maintaining the cleanliness as you need.
