I’d loooove to have a gas stove someday but since I don’t own one now, I did a quick search to find the best way to clean a gas stove. I found a great site that gives step-by-step instructions for cleaning gas stove burners. According to tipnut, you can also use this same method for drip pans. This looks to be the easiest way to clean stove burners ever!
How to Clean Gas Stove Burners
Make sure to click over for specific instructions and pictures, but here are the bullet points for easy reference:
- Remove burners (or drip pans) and place in plastic ziplock or trash bag.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of ammonia in the bag. You don’t need to completely cover the burners since the fumes actually do the work.
- Seal the bag.
- Place outside (so fumes don’t leak into your home) for about 12 hours.
- Remove from bag and wipe clean.
While you’re cleaning the burners, take this opportunity to make your stove look new again! Grab this deep clean brush set to get in all the crevices. Use a scraper to remove debris you’ve ignored. Scrub the places you usually only wipe down.
Keep them clean….
If you’re wondering how often you should clean your gas stove, it’s a good idea to wipe them down after every use. If you cook often, I recommend including “deep clean the stove” once a quarter on your perfect cleaning schedule. Regular maintenance using our kitchen cleaning tips ultimately saves time (and money). That means more time for focus on what’s really important in life!
Deep clean the rest of your kitchen! By working hard to make your stove sparkle again, you just may be motivated to wipe spills immediately and clean it after every use!
