How to Clean a Stove Top

March 28, 2019

Even if you clean your stove top after every use, it’s easy to overlook spills that fall through your stove’s metal grates. And not all cleansers are created equal. If you are wiping down your stovetop with a cleanser that isn’t breaking down grease and grime, it can build up over time leaving your stovetop with caked-on splatter and drippings. Stick around and learn how to clean a stove top with Bar Keepers Friend!

The first step in deep-cleaning your stove top is to remove the burner covers and knobs. Scrub these items in the sink with Bar Keepers Friend and then soak them in hot, soapy water.

While our traditional powdered cleanser is a powerhouse in the kitchen, for greasy messes, we recommend our Cookware Cleanser & Polish because it has extra surfactants, which help to break down and remove grease. Apply BKF with a non-scratch sponge or soft cloth, washing it  off after one minute, and reapplying as necessary. Don’t leave BKF on the surface for longer than one minute at a time, especially on stainless steel stovetops.

Once you have cleaned your stovetop, rinse and dry the removable parts and replace them on your stove. Now, step back and appreciate the results of your efforts! To keep your stovetop looking its best, make cleaning it thoroughly after every meal a priority. A few dedicated minutes cleaning with Bar Keepers Friend’s MORE Spray + Foam after dinner can save you a lot of time in the future.
