Cleaning spills as they happen is the best technique for keeping the kitchen hob clean, but life gets in the way and it is rarely that straightforward.
Unfortunately, kitchen hobs may become extremely dirty in a short period of time. Whether your chicken curry sauce spilled all over the stove or your ABC Soup boiled over, food dirt quickly accumulates on the stove and can be tough to remove.

What you will need to use:
1. To clean the removable pieces of the hob, fill a sink or bucket with hot soapy water.
2. To clean the hob, use a multi-surface cleaner, a hob cleaning product, or a natural cleaner.
3. Nothing that will scratch the hob's surface, such as a soft microfibre or a cleaning cloth.
4. To clean in the nooks where the cloth can't reach, use an unused toothbrush.
5. To clean the grate, burners, and rings of the gas stove, use a gentle scrubbing brush.
6. After cleaning the hob, polish the surface using a soft cloth.
1. Spray a hob cleaner of your choice on the electric hob and let it soak for a few minutes.
2. Soak a big towel in boiling water and set it over the stove for 3 minutes. Any burnt-on spots and grease will be lifted by the heat from the cloth.
3. Remove the towel and wipe away any loose dirt or food, repeating the process until no more dirt is visible on the cloth.
4. Work the hob cleaning product into the crevices of the heating elements with an old unused toothbrush to remove difficult grease spots.
5. Wipe the electric plates clean with a clean moist towel to ensure they are free of any cleaning product. Your electric plate hob should now look like this.
