How to keep your stovetop clean and shiny. 9/11/17

On Monday we flew to Las Vegas, rented a car, and drove to St. George, Utah. We stopped at the grocery store on the way to the house and picked up a rotisserie chicken and a bag of salad.

In lieu of having something interesting to post I will share a bit of kitchen magic – how I keep my stovetop clean and shiny.

Here’s my stainless steel cooktop. It is 6 1/2 years old. Looks pretty good, right?

My stainless steel cooktop

I can tell you that it is a real bugger to clean. After fighting with it for a few years I got one of these.

Yes, my solution to a messy stove is to use it as little as possible and never for something that spatters. The countertop is a lot easier to clean up than the stovetop. This induction burner cost about $50 and has saved me (actually mostly John) a lot of clean-up time. Plus it doesn’t heat up the kitchen. The only thing to remember is that it does not work with aluminum pots and pans. You have to use cast iron or stainless steel bottomed cookware.
