Cleaning Tip: Deep Cleaning Your Stove

by StephBuckwalter on July 16, 2012

Did you know that the top of your stove can be lifted for cleaning? (One exception is those smooth topped stoves.) You lift the whole top piece just like you would the hood of a car. You will should find a metal rod that you can pull up and fit into the top to secure it.


If you’ve never cleaned under there before, you may have quite project waiting for you. Here is what I use to clean up the mess:

  • Use a spatula to scrape up anything chunky.
  • Wipe off the surfaces using Dawn dish washing detergent. It cuts the grease fairly well.
  • Use an SOS pad to remove baked on grease.

If you don’t get it all the first time, don’t worry. Clean out what you can and try again next time.
