Frequent cooking on your stovetop can cause accumulation of burnt-on food, grease and food residues, particularly under the electric cooker rings. But cleaning electric cooker hob rings thoroughly with products you may already have at home is easy if you know how!
Then, read on.
For regular cleaning of your stove’s electric hob, use damp lint-free fabric such as an old t-shirt to gently wipe down all surfaces. You could use specialised cleaning products but natural cleaning solutions are becoming increasingly popular.

Cutting grease with household ammonia
Cleaning the stove burners will be easier if you take them off. To do so, make sure the burners are completely cool, grip the edge and lift them above the sides of the drip pans. Rock back and forth for an easier release. Detach by tugging out the connections of any exposed wiring. If you encounter any difficulties, consult your user manual.
Cleaning the coils is a relatively simple procedure if you follow these guidelines. First, remove the heating coils from your stove. Use a washing-up liquid and warm water mix to wipe off the electric heating coil. Scrub stains with a scourer and then dry with a lint-free cloth.
Make a paste with half a cup of baking soda and three tablespoons of water. Apply it carefully to the coils with a soft-bristled brush and let the paste sit for about 20 minutes. Spray with distilled vinegar, then carefully rinse and dry with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Take two rings at a time and place them in a zip-top plastic bag. Fill the bottom of the bag with ammonia and leave it overnight. Carefully remove the rings keeping them away from your face, as the fumes will be very strong. Rub the rings to get rid of excess ammonia. After that, carefully rinse and dry with a lint-free cloth. Safely dispose of the bags.
Steam cleaning an oven with ammonia offers great results too!
Drip pans are designed to catch any spills and drips and are located under the heating unit. They should ideally be cleaned after each use as allowing food remnants and grease to build up can potentially be a fire risk. If they’re rusty, they need to be replaced.
For fresh spills:
For stubborn stains:
As previously mentioned, open a window or two and wear your protective gloves when working with ammonia.
Try turning burners to the highest setting to burn off as much dirt as possible. This may cause a smoky atmosphere, so you’ll need to keep your windows open. As soon as the smoke stops rising, turn the burners off and allow them to cool. Then remove the burners and coils to allow easy access to the stovetop.
