Clean Your Natural Gas Range in 10 Minutes or Less

Have a boil-over the last time you made pasta? Get a little too excited flipping that omelet? Either way, you’re probably here because your stove top needs a little elbow grease to get rid of the other kind.

Having a clean range is not just about a clean kitchen, it’s a home safety issue. Caked-on food can increase the risk of fire. It’s also about energy efficiency. Blocked burners keep your range from operating efficiently, which costs you money, so you energy savers have yet another reason to keep that stove clean.

Cleaning gas appliances is important, and the good news is, it’s easy. Check out this video to learn how to clean your stove top quickly and safely.

Not so hard, right? Here’s a recap:

  1. Let’s start with basic gas safety. Make sure that the range is turned off and cool to the touch.
  2. Remove the grates and place them in a sink full of hot, soapy water.
  3. Brush any crumbs off the range with a dry paper towel.
    • Lift the cooktop and vacuum any remaining crumbs. (Not all cooktops lift off, but if they do, use a vacuum hose to suck up any other crumbs that may be hiding underneath.)
  4. Remove the burner heads and use a pin to clean out any debris.
  5. Spray the stovetop with a 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar; let sit for one minute.
  6. Wipe the stovetop down with a clean paper towel.
  7. Reassemble the clean burner heads, caps and grates.
