Common problem, very frustrating...Use the self clean feature of your oven if available or you can place all of the grates and pieces into a black trash bag, spray them with oven cleaner and let the closed bag sit in the sun for a while, rinse and spot clean. You can get the tough stuff by "gently" using a steel wool pad - be careful, you could scratch the surface.

    Don't use oven self-clean feature to clean grates if they have tiny rubber feet connected to them - they will MELT!

Cleaning cast iron grates on a gas stove, "not porselen."


Gratings on gas stoves aren't usually very rough and are mostly covered with vitreous enamel to make them easier to clean for the first few years.

An engineer would season a casting by leaving it outside for several months for the sun, wind and rain and a large number of temperature changes to prepare it for service.

A cook seasons a cast iron cookpot by soaking it with oil and effectively burning it off though there are more sophisticated methods an internet search will reveal.

In the old days cast iron ranges were a daily chore for the housewife. Parts that could be polished were sanded with emery cloth and the rest was polished with a preparation called "black lead grate polish".
These days the stuff no longer contains any lead but grate polish is widely available.

How to clean grates on kenmore stove


I'm assuming it's for a gas stove... and we're talking about the grates on top. If so, check to see the texture of the part that touches the stove. If it's rough, like cast iron, Use a product like Gas Grate Cleaner. (sells at most stores. Grey, white, black and red container, looks like Comet.) If it's smooth underneath, put it in the dishwasher! Or soak it in the sink. Or, you can use the gas grate cleaner as well.

Inside racks? That Cleaner works awesome on them too.

glass cleaner WITH ammonia, and a small toothbrush works well. mop up with an old washcloth, rinsing often. for pieces which have gummy residue, and which can be removed to the sink for soap and water finsing afterwards, try GooGone.

We have a maytag ceran cermaic top cooking stove with large black stain that seems to be spreading like cancer over one of the "elements". We have tried a couple different over-the-counter...


try using the regular ceramic cooktop cleaner, apply and clean as you werewaxing a car, in samll circular motions, any stubbourn stains should be able to be removed by re-applying creme and scraping with razor blade( using flat side down not corners of razor)

Top of Gemini range


Hello patricialc,
Welcome,

You said, you have the stainless Gemini range and the top is black. I cannot get the top clean. It looks like the paint or the surface is "bubbled". I have tried EVERYTHING and it always looks like there is grease spatters on the top. I have all Maytag appliances and I am VERY disappointed with this stove. If I could, I would take it back...but I keep trying. I let the Maytag stove I had go. It was made in the late '50's, so I could 'update'. What a mistake!!!

The other option is to order a new glass top and have it replaced.
No abrasives!!

Let me know how you do.
Huuum

Cleaning and care for my GE Profile stovetop


The one thing I don't suggest is using the Ceramabryte product the dealer left with us. It leaves a greasy film. When I get ready to clean my black GE Profile, I pull off the controls to wash separately. Then I lift off the grates, take a single-edge razor blade to scrape anything stuck on (it doesn't scratch), then I use baking soda and scrub and scrub with lots of paper towels. Then I start cleaning off the baking soda with lots and lots more paper towels. There is still a film, but at least it's not greasy. At this point I grab some more dry paper towels, pour on a 3' puddle of rubbing alcohol and wipe it all over the stove top and front. You may have to do this twice. Then, if I don't turn on the hood light's brightest setting, it really doesn't look too bad. I have to do this at least once a week, as I have never had a stove that got so dirty so fast and was such a pain to clean.

FYI, I would never buy another of these stoves. Besides the cleaning issue, there is the fact of having to replace the igniter (glow plug?) twice in the first four years. My old, bottom-of-the line Magic Chef went 25 years with the first replacement not coming until it was about 15 years old. Also, the broiler is unimpressive and steaks, etc., just sort of steam. Can't get a really good crust going. It's a slide-in and the top is very narrow, front to back, because of the slanted control panel on the front, and so you really can't put two large pots or pans on one side. Let's see....oh yes, I ordered the unglazed grates for safety reasons and it came with the procelain glaze. Those were replaced free of charge, though I had to go pick them up. Then the first set of unglazed grates began to rust about six months into use, so had to be replaced (again, no charge at least). Recently I noticed that the inside walls of the oven, where the racks slide, are starting to rust. Finally, the burners are difficult to calibrate, which I really notice when I try to cook rice, which comes out right about 50% of the time.

Now, on top of all this, I have to worry about the glass door exploding?!?! Should I ban my grandchildren from the kitchen? Has anyone from Consumer Reports seen this website?
