Though you may scrub every inch of your kitchen, there are plenty of trouble areas that are nearly impossible to get clean. Believe it or not, but we all someway hate cleaning our oven. We all know the efforts it takes to remove and scrub the burners and racks after a few serious weeks of eating at home.
As far as burners and grates go, you are in luck, because there’s a simple solution to returning even the grossest ones back to their original shine.
Keys to Clean Oven Burners and Grill Racks:
Porcelain grates and grill racks require different care from cast iron and stainless-steel grates. You can use these methods to keep your oven burners and grill racks clean.
1. Use Ammonia
To get rid of oven burners and grill racks, you can use ammonia. Ammonia is a colorless gas that when dissolved in water creates a powerful alkaline cleaning solution that is mostly used to clean glass and stainless steel, and the reason is its streak-free shine. It also great at removing burned on gunk from stove burners and grill grates that have accumulated over the months, may be even years.
2. Use A Nylon Scrubber Brush
Avoid a brass brush, which can scrape the coating off the grate. Use a curved brush that can get in between the grating. Gently scrape in a diagonal motion to get better results.
3. Clean the Underside of The Grill
In order to clean the grill, flip the grill after it has cooled. Scrape away excess food and gunk with the brush using a diagonal motion. The underside will take somewhat longer to clean because of the drippings that accumulated during cooking. Scrub until the grate is completely clean.
4. Keep the Grill Hot
When you are cleaning the oven grill, keep it hot. This will soften any leftover grease and make it easier to clean up. Turn the grill to its high setting if it’s not at that setting already. Let it heat up for 10 to 15 minutes, then, turn off the burners.
5. Scrub the Door
Scrub using a back and forth motion, continue until the bar is free of grease and food particles. You can repeat the process if you needed. You can also apply vegetable oil to the grate. Don’t apply more than a teaspoon of oil.

You just need a store-bought cleaning solution that features a light percentage of ammonia in its ingredients or a specific purpose cleaning wipe.
