Cooking is a messy activity that will leave your cook top and iron grates covered with food spatters. If left untreated, the food spatters will burn and harden onto the stove top and burners. This will make removal a bit more difficult but not impossible. After you have thoroughly cleaned both the cook top and iron grates, take the necessary steps to keep the appliance looking its best. You can accomplish this by regularly wiping the stove with a damp sponge.

Fill a clean sink with warm water and add several drops of dish soap. Use your hand to swish the soap and water together. Submerge the iron grates in the water and scrub with a nylon scrubber before rinsing the grates with cool water. Alternatively, run the iron burners through the dishwasher.


Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.


Pour a small amount of cooking oil in a bowl. Saturate the bristles of a pastry brush in the oil. Apply a light coating of the oil onto the iron grates.


Set the cooking oil-covered iron grates on top of the baking sheets. Bake the iron grates in the oven for 10 minutes.


Let the iron burners cool before placing them back on the cooktop.


Dampen a clean sponge in warm water and sprinkle baking soda over one side.


Wipe the cooktop with the baking soda-covered sponge until the surface is clean. Remove the baking soda residue by wiping with a damp cloth.
