Only those who don’t work don’t commit errors and the only stove burners that don’t get dirty are those that are not used intensively for cooking. Mine are usually a mess and the idea of scrubbing them was so appalling that I kept postponing the inevitable until it was painful to even look at them. There are of course plenty of chemicals and expensive cleaning products out there for those like me who allow things to grow out of proportion but they come with a hefty price tag.
What I propose is a smart solution of cleaning the stove burners with virtually no effort and without spending more than a few dollars for a consistent supply. The answer to questions is rarely “ammonia” but in this particular case it is and the more you think of this homemade solution for shiny stove burners, the more you’ll like it. Besides ammonia you will only need a plastic bag that is large enough to accommodate the stove burners and can be sealed hermetically.
A quarter of a cup of ammonia is enough for cleaning even the dirtiest burners and you won’t have to interact too much with the substance. Just place them all inside the plastic bag and wait patiently for the ammonia to work its magic, because there is nothing more for you to do. It is as easy as that and in 12 hours you will be surprised how clean the burners are without scrubbing or buying cleaning products.
Take about 1/4 cup of ammonia and seal it up with one of the burners in a large ziploc bag. You only need a little ammonia in the bag. You are not trying to soak the burner… you just want to seal it up with the ammonia fumes.
The overnight soak is enough to make cleanup as easy as wiping off the surface with a sponge.
