Stove burners and stove burner pans are some of the most vexing things to clean in any kitchen. They are prone to both food spills AND high heats, which results in baked-on messes that are seemingly impossible to remove.

How To Clean Your Stove Burners

You’ll need:

  • Stove burner parts
  • Gallon-sized ziplock bags
  • Ammonia
  • Directions:
  • Pour a splash of ammonia into a ziplock bag. Then place one of your stove parts into the bag and seal it, and repeat until all the parts you want to clean are sealed up in bags. (You can put between a few parts in the same bag if there’s enough space.)

Leave the bags on your countertop overnight.

In the morning, pull the parts out of the bag and use a soapy sponge to wipe away the grease and grime.

If there are a few extra stubborn spots of grime, tackle them with a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and a little elbow grease. The baking soda/peroxide paste can also help polish the shinier parts and leave them looking sparkling clean
