SWMBO cleaned the stove top today while I was gone - it took her "two hours" (or so she said). I would have cleaned it better but it took too long - brewing beer is tiring, don'tcha know?

Although she says that I'm through brewing in the kitchen I think I can get away with it (at least for extracts) if I can figure out how to get this stuff off the stove - quickly and easily. So how do the experts here do it? There must be a magic formula - Oxyclean? I'm afraid to use the SS scrub pad; something tells me it would remove porcelain as fast as the burnt on wort.

Oxyclean should work fine. Just be sure to rinse well.

Maybe some mild abrasive like bar keepers friend.

For tough spots, you'd be amazed at what a Mr Clean Magic Eraser can do.

Any soap and warm water has always worked for me... I have a glass top, electric stove. Extract takes a few passes, but it usually works... Clorox anywhere cuts through some good grime... I use it when I take a huge chunk of meat and cut it down to steaks

The key is to let it stay wet for as long as possible to soften it up. I usually keep some barkeepers friend or comet around for cleaning the stove and if you loosen it up with letting it soak in water a bit and then use a slightly abrasive cleaning agent like that it comes up pretty easy.

A damp cloth to wipe up the mess right after it happens works the best !

I understand your situation, I was there once myself.

I waited for a turkey fryer to pop up on amazon ($30 shipped)

Clean as you go!
I have a glass top and if it gets too hard I use a metal turner and chisel it off, then soak.

+1 on the Magic Eraser. It's amazing the crusty gunk they can take off without doing any damage to the surface.

They also work great when the SWMBO of the day/week/month melts her shoe on the Harley exhaust.

you could ask her to buy you a turkey fryer so you could brew outside I am pretty sure if you just explain it because it will make the inside of your place cleaner, she will understand
