Best Stovetop Cleaners 2020

Best Stovetop Cleaners 2020: All you have to do is fry a little bacon or simmer a pan of tomato sauce and just like that, a clean, shiny stove is covered in greasy splashes and burnt pieces. And the longer this damage lasts, the more it cooks and the more difficult it is to remove. If you have an electric or induction hob, any build-up, even the residue from using the wrong cleaner, can affect the heating and cooking performance of the appliance. So, because you’re probably using and cleaning your cooktop more than, say, your oven, a good stove cleaner should be an essential part of your kitchen cleaning arsenal.

When we test range cleaners in the Good Housekeeping Institute’s cleaning lab, we dirty our gas, electric and induction hobs just like you would at home. We fry bacon and burgers to make splashes of fat, spill and cook over the pasta sauce, and boil the jars. We also have the advantage of testing cleaning products in the kitchen and testing laboratories of the GH Institute, where recipes are developed and household appliances evaluated daily. We assess the cleanliness of the products, their cleanliness or dirtiness, their ease of rinsing and the amount of residue they leave. Finally, we examine the labeling to find out how complete the instructions are and for any safety precautions that may be necessary depending on the ingredients they contain.
