How to Properly Clean Gas Stove and Oven

how to clean gas stove

Is your kitchen powered by propane? If not, well it should be! Cooking indoors with propane gas is not only energy efficient and easy on the ol’ wallet, but offers a high quality cooking experience preferred by homeowners and chefs all over the world. It’s important to keep your gas powered stove and oven in mint condition to get the most out of your days in the kitchen. Here are some simple tips to keep your gas oven looking oh so fresh and so clean.

When you’re not cooking with a propane stove or oven….

  • Safety first! Always make sure your gas oven or stove is turned off before cleaning.
  • If you have sealed stovetop burners, there is no need to remove them to clean. Only a professional should do this! Sealed burners protect the burner box from encountering spills and food bits.
  • Clean spills as soon as possible (once the surface has cooled) to avoid a more difficult, hardened mess later on. Use warm, soapy water and a plastic scouring pad to clean effectively. Remove burner grates and clean them off in the sink.
  • Take care when cleaning around the gas ports on the burners. Remove debris using a small, straight object such as a toothpick.
  • Got a pilot-less stove? When cleaning, don’t forget to clear the port and area below the igniter wire, because if left in place can keep the gas burner from lighting.

Safety Tips

Tip 5: Don't run out of gas!

Serious safety hazards, such as fire or explosion can result. If your storage tank gets empty or depleted, air and moisture can enter. This can cause a build-up of rust inside the tank. Rust can decrease the concentration of the odor of propane, making it harder to smell. If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly.
