cleaning splatters on gas cooktop

nancedNovember 8, 2008

Help!! I have just started using my first-ever gas stove. I cooked sausages and then spent 1/2 hour cleaning!The heavy cast iron grates had to be removed and the whole stovetop had to be degreased. Is there such a thing as a splatter protector for the rest of the stovetop when I'm cooking something messy? I'm hoping I haven't made a mistake going to gas from electric. This clean-up issue is huge to me. Any suggestons?

They do sell lids to catch the splatter. They are universal lids (to fit all sizes) and are made of a mesh that will let the steam escape but catch the splatters.

They also sell little pie pan type lids to fit over the other burners you are not using.

Buy a degreaser like Greased Lightning to clean up grease splatters.

Also if I am making a big messy production ofs omething like fried food for the masses or a big batch ofsjelly, I will cover some of the cooktop with foil.
If you clean up your grease spatters righta way they wont' become hardened....and any of the degreaser sprays works very well.

thanks for that. I'm sort of wondering how to keep the other 3 burners and the cast iron grates from getting totally grease covered if I don't get the splatter screen on in time. (the family isn't always as careful)My old electric stove was much easier to keep clean on a daily basis. Maybe this is just one of those cases where I need to take time to get used to something new
