This has got to be the easiest way I know of to clean deeply soiled, stained, cooked on gunk from your drip pans whether electric or gas. This also works great for oven racks.
Fill your sink with the absolute hottest water you have. Put in 4-5 dryer sheets, put in drip pans if you'd like split the difference with the dryer sheets some on bottom and some on top; leave overnight. If you're doing the oven racks use the bathtub. Fill both of the sink and the tub full enough so you have a couple inches of water covering your items. The next day or when you see fit use the wet dryer sheets like rags to wipe article down. No scrubbing needed, the grease, food, boil overs, and splatters wipe clean. Rinse very well and dry. I just used some old rags I had.
Then replace the racks or drip pans. It is simple and almost no work. It took me maybe 10 minutes from draining the water to replacing the drip pans and/or the racks. Use the cheapest dryer sheets you can find it doesn't matter. Happy cleaning the worst job you have to do, to keep your stove/oven clean.
