How to Clean Gas Range Grates in 5 Easy Steps

Share this expert tip!

It’s so satisfying to finally get the dishes put away and the kitchen cleaned after the whirlwind mess of cooking and eating dinner. Until you reach the stove. Oh, the dread of how to clean gas range grates. Nobody seems to like this job, so let’s make it as painless as possible.

Knowing how to clean a gas range will keep your stove functioning as it should. Food particles and debris have a nasty habit of falling into spaces they shouldn’t be.

Simple Steps to Clean Gas Range Grates

Materials Needed:

  • baking soda
  • dish soap
  • non-abrasive scrubbing sponge
  • gloves
  • water
  • vinegar (optional)

This concoction of baking soda, dish soap, water, and vinegar also makes a great natural oven cleaner.

Step #1 Clean with Dish Soap

When you are preparing to clean gas range grates, the first thing to do is remove them from the range top. Use your favorite dish soap and a damp scrubbing sponge to rid of any debris and easy-to-remove food particles. This will help you see what stuck on foods and grease build up you’re really dealing with.

Step #2 Make a Paste

Put 1/2 cup baking soda in a bowl and add enough water to make a paste. Use a full cup baking soda for more stubborn build-up. Apply the paste directly to the burners. Let the paste sit for 30 minutes to break down any build up and begin to eat away the grease.

Step #3 Scrub

Gently scrub all the areas with the baking soda. Scrub each grate one at a time, paying close attention to the tiny areas where grease likes to settle.

Step #4 Rinse

Use fresh water to rinse all traces of baking soda off the grates. You will see if there are any areas that have grease or stubborn food particles remaining.

If everything looks great but there is baking soda residue, you can spritz with vinegar to give it that extra shine.

Step #5 Repeat if Necessary

Repeat steps 2 through 4 if necessary if your gas stove grates are extremely dirty.

This process to clean gas range grates is so simple and effective that it’s no wonder so many people have discovered the power of natural cleaning solutions. No toxic fumes to breathe, no harsh chemicals on your skin, and you can even take a break while the baking soda does the heavy lifting for you.
