You know those burner pan thingies that go underneath the element on your stove. They're a total pain to clean, and the chrome trim rings are even more difficult. Not any more!
First, you take everything apart...
Hm. Kinda grungy huh?
The trim rings don't look that bad, but there's actually a lot of crud there.
You need a jug of pure ammonia. Something like $3.00 at Walmart.
And you need some zip loc bags.
And you put about 1/4 cup or slightly less of ammonia in each bag, toss in the parts that need cleaning, and just let them sit overnight or even a little longer for really bad ones. In the morning, rinse them off and a quick wipe (I did use an SOS pad on a couple of stubborn spots, but only lightly) ...and presto! Nice and clean!
Ruth also used a large garbage bag with a twist tie for the oven racks, roaster pan and broiler pan. She just added more ammonia, maybe about a 1/2 cup or so and let it sit outside for the night. She said it was so much easier and less messy this way than spraying everything with oven cleaner.
This was one of those things Ruth had read about on facebook and decided to check and see if it worked. And it does!
Ready to be installed.
