How Often Do You Clean Your Stovetop?

If you do any amount of cooking at your house, you know how dirty your stovetop can get. Do you make an effort to clean it regularly? Or are you more lax about it?

This is one area that needs OCD cleaning!

I keep it clean all the time! I have a cooktop so it's pretty easy to clean after each use. 'Tho I'm pretty anal about keeping the kitchen spotless at all times!

Everyday. I'm in charge of cleaning the kitchen - and the cooks are quite messy!

I clean it whenever I do dishes. But when DH does the dishes, he conveniently forgets to wipe the stovetop. Lol

I at least wipe it down every time I cook.

I have a glass cooktop, which looks pretty gross pretty easily. So yeah, I clean it a lot.

Every time I cook... I can't stand having bits of burnt food on my stove. I even clean my bf's when I go over because I have clean issues...

I clean it up if it's a messy "cook", but I clean it well every weekend, or if I'm in the kitchen cleaning mood during the week.

my stove is black which shows every little piece of dust so I have to clean it every few days.

I didn't know that! I can kinda tilt them up, but it seems like they resist and my hand gets scraped up. Just pull straight up though? I'll have to try that. =)

Hey foxie -- did you know that you can just gently pull the spiral heating elements out of their plug? That way you can clean off the element, as well as any crud that falls underneath. I clean every time I cook. You have to in order to keep the people you're feeding from getting sick! Unfortunately I'm in a rental right now and the last tenants weren't so diligent, so there's some muck on one of the burners that's never, ever coming up.

It gets cleaned about 3-4 times a week. It depends on if it is my turn to do dishes and tidy the kitchen. My husband ignores it when it is his turn. It is like cleaning the stove is a foreign concept to him. He never remembers.

Every time I cook. It's induction so it's really easy to clean.

I do a daily wipe down, but I take everything apart and really scrub it every other week...unless I cook something really messy. I don't like it to be visably dirty.

Every evening, I life the stove top and clean other the burners. I don't like stuff to continue to build - I hate nasty stove tops.

Mine is not very clean, honestly. I have an electric stove and I can't get underneath the damn spiral things to clean food that's dripped down there. I'm not a very good house keeper.

I clean it off with a rag everytime I cook - sometimes when I don't even cook! But I give it good elbow grease once a week when I do my mega-clean.
