If it’s time that your stove burners got a good deep cleaning, there’s no need to buy special cleaning products. Apartment Therapy’s Unplggd has some tips for cleaning those caked on spots. Take a look:

  1. After burners have completely cooled, remove them from the stove top. They should slide right out with a gentle tug and lift from the connection point, but refer to your manual if you are unsure about how to remove yours.
  2. Use a cloth dipped in a little bit of mild dish soap and water to wipe residue from the burner coils. Make sure that you don’t get any part of the electrical connection wet!
  3. If there are tough, caked-on spots that won’t come off, try making a paste of baking soda and water. Apply this to tough spots, let sit for about 20 minutes, and then scrub and rinse the burner.
  4. Let burners dry completely before replacing them.
