Let’s just face it… Stove burners aren’t really that fun to clean. Now that we have settled that score, we can move on to how to clean stove burners without promising yourself that you will never cook on your stove again so that you may prevent your stove burners from getting messy again.


Here is what I tried… And it worked out well.

I  soaked my stove burner in a mixture of vinegar, water and added some slices of lemon. It turned out that I didn’t have to put much energy into scouring my stove burner to get off burnt food, grease and rust at all. The mixture melted away everything that did not belong on the stove burner.




Here is how to do it…

You will need some white vinegar, a large ziplock bag, a few slices of lemon, water, a large bowl and your dirty stove burner.

Place the ziplock bag in the bowl to prevent any spills.

Fill with one part water and one part vinegar.

Add the slices of lemon. Then add the stove burner.

Close the bag properly and let soak for at least half an hour.


You can opt to let your experiment remain in the bowl for an easy clean up.

Remove burner from the mixture and bag.

Now, use a regular sponge or scotch brite to add any final touches as you see necessary.

Then voila! You have a clean stove burner.


If your are wondering about the Math here, this is how it works…


The vinegar and acid from the lemon slices will break down the grease, food and rust on the stove burner. So you do not have to get a knife and chip away at your stove burner in a desperate attempt to get it clean 🙂 Thanks for reading!
