hey guys, hate to ask a question thats been asked, but couldnt find anything with search.....whats the best way to clean a SS stove top after a boil over has dried (the next day)? Obviously it would have been much easier before it dried but what are ya gonna do? I tried soaking in vinegar with out much help. Is it just alot of elbow grease or is there a secret? thanks

Barkeeper's Friend. Rub with the grain.

You can find at supermarkets next to the comet cleaner

green scrubbies will scratch some stainless (DAMHIKT).

Oven cleaner (easy off) works really well on the hard to get off stuff. Just don't get it on paint, or plastic.

If it is wort or another suger solution, put a rag on it, pour a little boiling water on the rag, and let it sit for a few minutes, it will wipe right off.

Oven cleaner is the only thing I've had work. Haven't tried barkeeper's friend yet, but I've been meaning to get some to clean up a stainless counter.

oven cleaner and elbow grease seem to be slowly doing the trick, thanks for the answers I will have to try barkeepers friend some time though. On another note, whats up with the search on this site? I tried to search and came up with nothing but then after I post the message in similar threads at the bottom I get a few threads that answer my question

I just use this..



Put water on it and let it soak for a bit. Seems to work fine and is under a dollar a can.

You could try something called Cerma Brite. It is designed for cermic top stoves. I've used it on my bbq and it cleans it really well. It has a mild abrasive in it though so scrub with the grain. I have seen a spray for cleaning stainless bbqs that takes anything off. Could try those.
