Default Cleaning Stove After Brewing

So I have time nasty baked on gunk on the stove. It's a gas stove with pilot light. Baked enamel finish.

What is a good cleaner to use?

I have the same set-up, Easy-off does the trick for me

If your talking about the stove top... Easy- off and any caustic based cleaner will corrode any aluminum components ; beware.

Straight blade and green scrubby with soapy water.

I have a gas stove with 4 burners. My 9 gallon pot can straddle 2 (not perfectly) and I get a much faster boil that way. Recently, to make things easier for me and to make my wife happier, I started removing the grills and using aluminum foil to protect the plates below the burners. I just cut a hole for each of the burners then replace the grills and go to work.
When done, the great majority of mess is easy to clean and I've found that it actually helps the heat more and even keeps my mash at a steady temperature longer. Simple and cheap (that's me!)

Yes, put foil down in the future

Thanks all. The woman was over last night cleaning my stove and I figured there had to be a less time consuming way to clean it so I told her I would ask you folks here.

Yup. That's me. Mr Thoughtful.

I wet the area and sprinkle some PBW on it, then scrub with a green scrubby.

I've started moving my pot to the other burner and cleaning up immediately if I spill anything. Yes, not the safest route but if it doesn't get baked on you don't have to kill yourself trying to get it off.

But from now on I think I might go the foil route as well. How come I never thought of that....
