Preparation and Safety

Before cleaning your gas stove top, it is important to take the necessary safety precautions and gather all the supplies and materials you will need.

Here are the steps you should take to prepare for cleaning your gas stove top:

Step 1: Gather Your Cleaning Supplies

You need all the necessary materials available, here are the list of items needed.

  • Dish soap
  • Warm water
  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Reusable scrub sponge
  • Soft-bristled brush
  • Microfiber cloth

Make sure you have all these supplies on hand before you begin cleaning your gas stove top. 

I would use any cleaner such as a CIF Cream cleaner, or Comet Powder, or Bar Keeper’s Friend. It doesn’t matter the cleaner you use, because all of those products will remove the grease and stains with a good scrub sponge.

What’s important is scrubbing effectively and paying attention to the small crevices and corners around the burners and knobs.

Step 2: Turn Off the Gas

Before cleaning your gas stove top, it is important to turn off the gas supply to your stove. This will prevent any gas leaks or accidents while you are cleaning.

To turn off the gas, locate the gas valve behind your stove and turn it off. If you are not sure how to do this, consult your stove’s user manual or call a professional.

Step 3: Remove Stove Grates and Burner Caps

To clean your gas stove top thoroughly, you will need to remove the stove grates and burner caps.

These can be soaked in warm soapy water while you clean the rest of the stove top. To remove them, simply lift them off the stove top and place them in your sink.

Make sure they are cool to the touch before handling them, unless you want to get your hand burnt.

By following these steps, you can ensure that you are properly prepared and safe before cleaning your gas stove top.

Step 4: Clean the Stove Surface

Start by removing any loose debris or crumbs from the surface of the stove. Then, use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the surface with warm and soapy water.

An oven cleaner i would recommend is Easy off fume, It’s so good and does all the basics exceptionally well.

For tough stains or grease buildup, use a mixture of baking soda and water to create a paste.

Apply the paste to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it away with a damp cloth.

Step 5: Tackle the Burners

Remove the burners from the stove and soak them in warm, soapy water for at least 30 minutes. Use a soft-bristled brush to scrub away any remaining debris or stains.

If you’re dealing with tough stains like the one in the picture below, try using a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda.

Then rinse the burners thoroughly and let them dry completely before reassembling.

Step 6: Wipe Down Control Knobs

Use the scrub sponge to wipe down the control knobs with soapy water. If there are tough stains or grease buildup, use a mixture of white vinegar and water to create a cleaning solution.

Apply the solution to the knobs and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it away with a damp cloth.

Step 7: Reassemble and Final Touches

Once all the components are clean and dry, reassemble the burners and control knobs. Wipe down the surface of the stove with a clean microfiber cloth to remove any remaining residue.

For added shine, use a stainless steel cleaner or polish. And that’s it! Your gas stove top should now be clean and ready to use.

Just like i promised, here are my personal tips which i think would really be of help in your cleaning journey.

1. Use a mesh splatter screen when pan frying to limit the need to clean your gas stove top. It works a lot of time though.

2. After scrubbing, rinse the stove surface thoroughly with hot water to remove any leftover cleaner residue. Because if you don’t do this, it may leave behind a chemical film which can be unsightly and may affect the appearance of your stove.

3. Spray it with automotive degreaser then scrub it with steel wool.
